The Boston Red Sox are one of the most storied franchises in baseball.
They have a long history of being successful and winning World Series championships.
But, over the past few seasons, they have struggled to reach their potential.
In three of the past four seasons, the Red Sox have failed to make the postseason.
All of that led to the firing of executive Chaim Bloom.
Boston felt it was in its best interest to find a new head of baseball operations.
Many people have lauded Bloom for being a great person, even when times are tough.
He showed that after being fired by the Red Sox by releasing a heartfelt statement.
According to Ian Browne, Bloom said: “Great things are in store for the Red Sox. And while I’m sad that I won’t be watching from the same chair, I will still be very proud.”

Bloom took over the Red Sox in 2019, which came right after they won the 2018 World Series.
He came in with such high expectations but his team failed to reach them.
One of the moves that many Red Sox fans have not gotten over is trading star outfielder Mookie Betts.
The Red Sox moved him to the Los Angeles Dodgers before the 2020 season.
But, what the Red Sox got back in return was not enough.
That was the first move that began the downfall of the Red Sox during Bloom’s tenure.
Boston will now be searching for a new person to take over this role.
This search could change the history of the Red Sox.
Finding the right person for the job is vital.NEXT: Red Sox Minor Leaguer Shares Praise For Chaim Bloom
