The Boston Red Sox made a significant move regarding the future of their franchise.
After another year of underachieving, the Red Sox fired executive Chaim Bloom.
Bloom was the head baseball guy in Boston for four seasons.
Three of the four years the Red Sox failed to make the postseason.
While it is not his fault how the players play, the roster he constructs is all on him.
Also, Bloom was the one that traded away Red Sox legend Mookie Betts.
Even though some of his baseball decisions were questionable, there was no question about his personality.
According to Ian Browne, Bloom was respectful and always available to the media.
On a personal level, Chaim Bloom was respectful of the job the media had. He was probably the most accessible of the four baseball ops leaders in my 22 years covering the Sox. In a position that can allow people to get thin skinned, I didn't sense Bloom ever got that way.

Bloom understood everything that came with being the face of an MLB organization.
Talking to the media is a part of that.
Despite the struggles of the Red Sox, it appears Bloom always made himself available to answer questions.
It will be interesting to see what Bloom does next in his career.
Even if he cannot find another top front office job some team will probably take him on in some role.
As for the Red Sox, they must hit on their next hire.
This team has struggled for too long, it is time for them to start competing again.
Expect them to go out and find someone who is willing to be aggressive to improve the roster.
Boston has the resources to acquire some top players, they just need someone willing to do it.NEXT: MLB Insider Reveals 2 Names Linked To Top Red Sox Job
