It has arrived earlier than anyone on Jersey Street wanted, but the Boston Red Sox offseason begins Monday.

The defending World Series champions won’t have a chance to defend their crown this October after not qualifying for the 2019 playoffs. What now awaits the club is an offseason likely to feature a ton of change, as Boston’s No. 1 objective is to find someone new to head up the baseball operations.

Before Boston continues the search for Dave Dombrowski’s replacement, the Red Sox brain trust met with the media Monday morning at Fenway Park. Team president Sam Kennedy, manager Alex Cora and assistant general managers Brian O’Halloran and Eddie Romero provided updates on the team as it gets ready for a long offseason.

NESN and NESN.com carried the press conferences live, and you can watch them in the video above.
