Bobby V out today........I will say that I don't dislike him and the idea of bringing in somebody to shake up the spoiled babies in the clubhouse was a decent one on the face of it---except the owners never actually let the spoiled babies get shaken up until it was far too late

I don't think he ever had a chance here, and while some of the problems here have nothing to do with him, some obviously do


whether he deserves a little blame or a lot of the blame, it is clear that he will never be part of the solution here, so he absolutely had to go......




Move 1: Fire Manager............A

GM Ben grade to date.............A

if move 2 is hire John Farrell, his grade is going to drop.....I don't understand why people around here are so gung ho for him to be next in line....

If this involves making a trade to get him, that's ridiculous.

I don't want Farrell.  Now that we had the dictator type Manager, it's time to bring in a "players" coach again.

My money is on the Red Sox to hire virtually unknown "player's manager" Robbie Ballantine as their new manager:

They need a Joe Torre type.  A former Red Sox player that can relate to current players, but can still discipline guys and get respect from them when needed.  Torre had that because he was an outstanding player, so the guys who played for him respected him.  I think they should hire Jason Varitek, personally.

Yeah the "captain" did a good job controling the meatheads two years ago.
10/21/2012 12:05 AM
Farrell just got the job...
10/21/2012 12:12 AM
maybe he will be fine, but I just can't get excited about this guy....


Move 2:  Hire John Farrell     C


GM Ben grade to date:          B

I honestly don't know what Farrell's thinking. I get in general Boston is a more prestigious job, but the current rosters and circumstances both favour the Jays in my opinion. I think the Jays will have a far better season than the Sox next year.

DID BOSTON LOOK AT ANY MINORITIES?

OH, WAIT, IT'S BOSTON

Could have went back to Gene Lamont. He's kind of a minority, one of the few 3rd base coaches that holds the runner at 3rd on a home run.

Tony Pena interviewed....he was the frontrunner going in, but nobody could understand anything he said....so they had to look elsewhere
