I haven't really cared about the losses from 2017-2019 because I understood what the Sox were trying to do and was on board with it.

2020, though, is where the not trying to win phase needs to end. I don't expect a World Series contender right away, but I do expect an honest effort from the front office to plug the holes in RF, DH and 5th starter. I don't care if it's through long-term contracts or short term stopgaps, but they need to have an MLB caliber bat at every position--no more nonsense like Leury Garcia as a starting right fielder.

I think 85ish wins and contending for a wildcard into September is a reasonable expectation for next year.
