Pedro Martinez detailed why he doesn’t ‘see where the path is leading’ for the Red Sox

As the trade deadline approached, the debate lingered about whether the up-and-down Red Sox would be buyers or sellers.

Ultimately, Red Sox chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom and co. ended up somewhere in the middle.

The Red Sox traded Christian Vázquez in exchange for minor leaguers Enmanuel Valdez and Wilyer Abreu; acquired Tommy Pham for a player to be named later and cash considerations; got Reese McGuire and a player to be named later in exchange for Jake Diekman; and nabbed Eric Hosmer and minor leaguers Max Ferguson and Corey Rosier for Jay Groome.

The consensus is that they didn’t get much better in the short term and didn’t help themselves much for the future either.
