Is Brock Holt Mentally Preparing For Boston Departure?

With every passing day, it appears and more more likely that Brock Holt may be the Red Sox "bubble" guy who gets traded out of town. Ironically, this comes at a time when most of Holt's vision and dizziness issues (from last year's bout with vertigo) have gone. In fact, he's having a great Spring at the plate (.345) and playing his usual multiple positions. His recovery and versatility may be the very traits that make him attractive to other teams. Said Holt yesterday, "Yeah, I'm not too worried about it. If the Red Sox don't want me on the roster, I'm sure there's 29 other teams that would be happy to have me on the roster. That's one of those things, you don't worry about it. I feel like I'm deserving of a spot on the team and I think if you ask anyone in the clubhouse, they would say the same thing. So I'm not too worried about it. Whatever happens happens, and you go from there." Those are tough words to hear from those of us who remember his 2015 All-Star status and his overall long-term value to the team. Stay tuned!
