As Red Sox at last get ‘better,’ Alex Cora keeps showing his worth


“We need to get better” doesn’t quite have the ring of “our objective is to win tomorrow,” but I’m increasingly getting that Terry Francona vibe from Alex Cora. In result, yes, but just as much in tenor, tone, and temperature.

They aren’t as big a ‘t’ as talent, obviously, but we just watched a Celtics team that lacked them and look how that ended up.

Before the Red Sox played their one series of the season in Minnesota, which was just a game off the torrid pace the 2018 Red Sox set through 70 games, Cora made clear he wasn’t concerned that the first dozen weeks of this season showed his team unable to consistently beat baseball’s best.
