  Now is not the time for Red Sox to trade Mookie Betts This season will be the fifth in a row Betts receives MVP votes and should be his fourth consecutive with a Gold Glove. It’s the foundation of a Hall of Fame career.You don’t trade players like that. You win again with players like that.Related: The idea of Red Sox trading Mookie Betts this winter is unacceptableThe Red Sox were fourth in the majors in runs this season. Even if J.D.

Tampa Rays VP of baseball operations Chaim Bloom finalized a contract Friday with the Boston Red Sox to be their chief of baseball operations . How much did Boston want him? Bloom was the only person interviewed for the job, though president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski was fired

The Red Sox have hired Chaim Bloom , the senior vice president of baseball operations for the Tampa Bay Rays , according to the New York Post’s Joel Hired by the Rays as an intern in 2005, the 26-year-old Bloom worked his way up in the organization and was eventually named senior VP in 2016.

The Red Sox had not announced it officially as of Friday evening and league rules restrict teams from breaking news during the World Series, but an industry source indicated an announcement could occur as soon as this weekend.

Bloom will become the Sox’ fourth hire to lead the baseball operations department since John Henry and his ownership group purchased the team in 2002. He replaces Dombrowski, the big-spending veteran executive who was fired in August.

The runner-up to become the New York Mets general manager last year, Bloom has been part of a Rays organization that’s achieved remarkable success given its financial limitations.

Despite having an MLB-low payroll of $60 million this year, the Rays won 96 games and took the Astros to the brink of elimination in the American League Division Series before losing in Game 5.

Boston Red Sox 's Chaim Bloom speaks at a news conference, Monday, Oct. In this role, Bloom will be responsible for all matters of baseball operations . So when the Red Sox hired former Tampa Bay Rays exec Chaim Bloom to take over as their new chief baseball officer, they gave him a clear

The Rays have never had a payroll higher than $76 million but continue to set the bar for efficiency, having won 90 games or more in seven of the last 12 years, making the playoffs five times in that span.

Bloom will enter the Red Sox organization at the start of what Henry called a “challenging offseason,” one in which the Sox want to get under the luxury tax threshold of $208 million. With their current salary obligations, they’ll have to cut about $30 million from the roster ahead of 2020, while also needing to fill holes in the rotation, bullpen, first base and second base.

Mookie Betts is a year from free agency and clearly isn’t taking a hometown discount, J.D. Martinez can opt out of his remaining contract this winter and the Red Sox owe almost half their payroll to a starting rotation that had its three highest-paid pitchers spend significant time on the injured list in 2019.

But Bloom is no stranger to dealing with tight conditions, having been a part of an organization that’s traded stars such as Evan Longoria and Chris Archer to shed money while acquiring some talented players (Tyler Glasnow and Austin Meadows included) in return and keeping the Rays competitive throughout.

He was a Yale University graduate in 2004 and interned with the Padres before starting his career as an intern with the Rays. He’s been there the last 15 years.

Assessing the offseason for the Boston Red Sox .
Ownership has made it clear that winning is still the priority, so the Red Sox will try to emulate the Dodgers in escaping luxury tax purgatory while still reaching the postseason on an annual basis. It will be a tall order, though with all the talent already on the roster, the Sox could only be a few moves — albeit perhaps large moves — away from another playoff berth.
