Great Tragedy has before minnesota vikings because of…..

Every season, we see players take a drastic leap from where they had been previously. But not all leaps are created equally. There are players who have struggled to break through in the big leagues that emerge as regular contributors for their teams. They are good role players who develop into all-stars. And finally, the all-star caliber player that becomes a legitimate household name type of star. Let’s take a look at one player from each team who could take a leap in 2024.

The Yankees and Red Sox certainly do not come together on trades very often, which is why the winter swap that sent left-handed swinging outfielder Alex Verdugo to the Bronx raised several eyebrows across the league. Verdugo was a productive regular in Boston for four years running, and the team’s decision to trade him to the hated Yankees of all teams was perplexing. The Red Sox seemingly had grown tired of disciplining the 27-year-old, as he was benched twice last season for lack of hustle and showing up late to the ballpark. To say the least, though, dealing a player with a lot of upside to your biggest rival over spurts of immaturity has the potential to dramatically blow up in your face

. Last season Verdugo slashed .264/.324/.421 with 13 homers, 54 RBI, 37 doubles, and five triples. Playing his home games at Yankee Stadium with the short porch in right field should dramatically boost his power numbers, and I anticipate the fiery Verdugo to report to camp with a chip on his shoulder, and a career year could be upcoming.
