5) The Boston Red Sox should be willing to absorb Mike Trout's contract
The only reason the Red Sox fired GM Chaim Bloom has to be because they're tired of finishing at or towards the bottom of the AL East. They finished in last in the division in two of the three full seasons Bloom had in Boston, and could finish in last once again.
Bloom did a great job building up Boston's minor league system, and with them already in postseason contention most of this season, they could be ready to try and go all in and win in 2024. Boston hasn't been spending money like they've been known to in recent years, but that can and should change this offseason with a new GM in charge.
The Red Sox do have a solid outfield consisting of Masataka Yoshida, Jaren Duran, and Alex Verdugo right now, but Yoshida is better as a DH than an outfielder, and Verdugo has one more year of control left. Duran is the only outfielder really pencilled in long-term right now, and he can play all three positions.
The Red Sox won't be getting as much money off their books as the Yankees this offseason, but their money owed to Corey Kluber, Adam Duvall, James Paxton, and potentially Justin Turner will all be off the books for next season. They'll also be starting at a much lower number than the Yankees, and will not want to watch their chief rival acquire a player like Trout.
Whether Trout would accept a trade to Boston remains to be seen, but the Red Sox should be willing to absorb the contract if a trade were to go down.
