John Farrell Given The Boot

  • Pin It

After two consecutive Division Series knockouts, the Boston Red Sox have canned manager John Farrell after five years with the ball club holding the managerial post.

Boston won the American League East two years in a row, but where knocked out of the postseason as quick as they came both times.

Farrell had a 432-378 career record in the regular season as the manager for the Red Sox, winning the World Series in his first year as manager (2013). He also served as the team’s pitching coach from 2007-2010 before heading to Toronto to be the Blue Jays’ manager from 2011 to 2012.

Farrell was well liked among most of the Fenway faithful but after a second consecutive season of failure following an off-season in which the team acquired Chris Sale from the Chicago White Sox, the expectations were sky high.

Farrell may end up in the mix in other managerial situations such as the New York Mets, but as of right now his future remains unclear.

As for Boston, it is truly up in the air as to which direction they will go.

Will they stay within the organization and promote?

Or will they look outside and see what’s available?

Only time will tell.
