John Farrell out after five seasons as Red Sox manager

Red Sox fire John Farrell amidst another LDS exit. informative.
A lack of pitching depth and some questionable management from John Farrell cost Boston a trip to the ALCS. Their former skipper paid the price.

Brad Ausmus could be a good fit for the Boston Red Sox.
But, no, the Tigers should not hire John Farrell.

I heard that on MLB XM.

Brad would get absolutely destroyed in boston.
They are talking about captain snatch face Jason Varitek as their next manager. We'll see.

Redsux will want to make a statement, and Varitek and Ausmus aren't. They will go after a hotshot potential manager who is outside their organization, IMO.

Francona lost the respect of his players. They were playing cards during the game.

While playing cards during the game(s), they were eating chicken and drinking beers.

Sounds more like spoiled millionaire baseball players than a HC problem.
