After losing Xander Bogaerts in free agency to the San Diego Padres, the Boston Red Sox must now look at other options to improve their team.

Fortunately, they signed Japanese outfielder Masataka Yoshida and veteran closer Kenley Jansen.

Those are good moves, but fans are still reeling from the loss of Bogaerts.

Starting rotation is another matter, with starters Michael Wacha, Rich Hill and Nathan Eovaldi all free agents.

With Carlos Rodón off the board, Eovaldi is the best option on the market.

But Red Sox fans don’t exactly have high expectations, and right now they expect to be disappointed.

Red Sox fans have low expectations

To be fair, as this fan pointed out, Corey Kluber was pretty durable this season for the Tampa Bay Rays and his stats weren’t horrible by any means.

They certainly weren’t great though.

The veteran right-hander was 10-10 with a 4.34 ERA in 31 starts.

But a caveat is necessary here.

The right-hander at least took the ball every five days.

The Red Sox were also stuck in a bottle with Wacha, who despite having more shoulder trouble, won 11 games and posted a 3.32 ERA.

But that doesn’t mean Red Sox fans are excited about this offseason.

In addition to the departure of Bogaerts, the team has yet to extend Rafael Devers.

Also, designated hitter JD Martinez is a free agent and could end up walking.

At this point, fans in Boston aren’t exactly expecting much in the next few weeks, other than to be potentially disappointed yet again.
