The Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots are currently sitting over the sports world as the two most recently crowned major champions.
Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and Pats are clearly not strangers of being world champs, who have won six Super Bowls for 17 years. And while Red Sox became the most successful baseball franchise today in the 21st century – winning the four titles of the World Series – 2018 was the first for Alex Cora as a manager.
And the Sox skipper is interested in getting some advice from New England's assigned mastermind.
On a special MLB Network passed Tuesday night, "Alex Cora: Making a Champion," Cora declared what he would ask Belichick about to win at a high level of competition.
"I just want to ask him: & # 39; What changes? & # 39 ;," Cora says. "Because something needs to be changed. … If you can not change things, it will be difficult to do it."
While Belichick considered that both philosophical foundations were in place in Foxboro since the day, he demonstrated the flexibility of the game, building powerhouses in two different seasons with a massive closure in his roster from year to year.
As Red Sox returns a nice chunk of their roster from last year's title, it certainly will not hurt Cora to get a little advice from Belichick about what it takes to stay early in the curve.
