    3 moves Red Sox should've made instead of signing Trevor Story in 2022

    In late March 2022, just days before MLB's regular season was slated to start, the Boston Red Sox added a second shortstop to their roster. Boston signed former Colorado Rockies star Trevor Story to a six-year, $140 million contract. The signing came just months before the Red Sox's then-shortstop, the homegrown talent and two-time World Series champion Xander Bogaerts would be hunting for a contract extension. Story was regarded as a defensive savant from his time with the Rockies and he was expected to provide some of the right-handed power the Red Sox needed at the time of his signing.
