Boston Red Sox first half grades
Management and Team
John Farrell – C
The issue is not if Farrell will be dismissed, but when. The days are numbered unless the Red Sox start to duplicate May in July.
Carl Willis – F
The real pitching coach is Pedroia! How embarrassing to have a situation where the coach misses out. The latest murmur is E-Rod is tipping his pitches again and that is from Willis himself. Fix it! This staff is a mess and ownership goes to the players and the coaching staff – especially Farrell and Willis.
Chili Davis – B
I never get too excited about hitting coaches and for every player, they help there is apparently one that is currently circulating around the bowl after being flushed.
Dave Dombrowski and Mike Hazen – INC
They have work to do and so far all that one hears is crickets, but historically DD is one not to sit by and not be proactive. What will happen is unknown, but expect some changes and that will be reported in the final grade.
The Team – B
The grade is based on a winning record and that is refreshing after the last two seasons. If the grade was June it would be an F.
