If they want to get the fan interest back up, which presumably they do, they have to act, says John Tomase. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston) Of course fans are going to be impatient, though. That’s to be expected. How patient will the owners be, though?

Looking to build on that for 2021, the righty is hard at work this winter.
