WMUR The Red Sox announced Wednesday morning that manager John Farrell will not return as the team’s manager in 2018. The team said a search for a new manager will begin immediately.
I guess back-to-back division titles is not good enough for Boston Red Sox management. The team has fired manager John Farrell, despite the fact that he has led them to the AL East crown each of the past two seasons, but then lost in the divisional round both times. I get that expectations are extremely high in Boston, due to the recent success of not jury the Red Sox, but also the other major sports teams. However, firing a manager that just won two division titles is absolutely ridiculous, John Farrell is a great manager and he will not be out of work long.
The search for a new manger begins now, and personally, I would like to see beloved David Ortiz as Red Sox manager. Manny as the hitting coach, Pedro as the pitching coach, make it happen!
