Keys for the Boston Red Sox to Be a Contender in 2013

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterDecember 10, 2014

The Boston Red Sox are closing up business on a 2012 season they hope they can soon forget. But what lies ahead for 2013?

MLB Lead Writer Zach Rymer and Pop Culture Lead Writer Gabe Zaldivar discuss the future of one of the hardest hit franchises this past year.

After a 2011 season that was maligned by chicken and beer, the Sox follow it up with a campaign so dreadful, their skipper, Bobby Valentine, was asked to see himself out.

Now they have roughly $110 million free to make things right in the following season, but they must do so responsibly and counter to business as usual.

As fans know, business as usual would mean more disaster next year.

Be sure to sound off with how you think the Red Sox can completely change their misfortune into victory in just a few months time.
