It has become ever so apparent John Farrell needs to go. Now, we can debate whether or not he has been the sole reason of Boston’s struggles at many points during this season, or that firing him would fix their issues. But, it is clear that the firing of Farrell is long overdue.
This June was yet another prime example as the Red Sox stumbled to a 10-16 record over the month. Boston was in need of leadership as the ship began to take on water, but were unable to find any in Farrell. Repeatedly after each loss Farrell would “shine turds” and look for any way out of holding his players accountable, especially Price. Lets not forget, just last year after the season had already been labeled a failure going 50-64 under Farrell, Torey Lovullo led the Red Sox to a 28-20 record over the final stretch.
2016 has been a year filled with under achievement, as the Red Sox have failed to capitalize on having the league’s best offense or the Blue Jays injuries, and are currently tied with Toronto for second place in the division. Both Dave Dombrowski and John Henry should not find this acceptable.
Bonus: That Sandy “The Sandyman” Leon is the greatest thing since flavored sunflower seeds.
