Alex Cora will have a lot of challenges in 2019

Not that there’s any reason to believe he can’t handle it There was a lot of people on or around the Red Sox that excelled with their performance in 2018.

Daily Red Sox Links: Chris Sale, Jackie Bradley Jr., Kevin Youkilis

In today’s links, Chris Sale has some dynamite sliders, JBJ was nearly traded and Kevin Youkilis’ Hall of Fame chances are pretty slim.
