The Red Sox won 108 games in the regular season before defeating the Yankees, Astros and Dodgers on their way to the title. The team was led by American League MVP Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts and J. D. Martinez. After these players, together with adolescents Andrew Benintendi and Rafael Devers, were one year older and expected to contribute more, it may be difficult to produce runs again this year.
The entire pitching starter from last year returns, including Ace Chris sale. The only big piece missing from last year's championship team is Craig Kimbrel. Even without Kimbrel, Red Sox are favorites to return to the baseball's postseason.
Red Sox fans who have severed the cable have a number of ways to watch Sox games this season, whether you're in the Boston area or outside the club's on-market followers.

Red Sox Streaming Outside the Market
If you're an Sox fan and live outside the Boston market, you will not be able to see the club on NESN. However, you can stream games live with an MLB.TV subscription.
You have two choices:
- Pay $ 119 a year (or $ 25 a month) to track every out-of-market game live or on-demand and the in-market team (home team ) with a 90-minute delay after the end of the game.
- You pay $ 92 annually for a single out-of-market team. In this case, your Red Sox and nobody else.
Both MLB.TV plans also include home and away radio streams. The radio broadcasts are not subject to the blackout rule, so you can listen to home matches live.
