The Boston Red Sox struggled to fill the void left by David Ortiz both in the lineup and in the clubhouse during the 2017 season.

The Boston Globe’s Pete AbrahamÂ and Alex Speier joined NESN’s Adam Pellerin to discuss Cora and what his first move needs to be on “NESN Sports Today,” presented by People’s United Bank.
