The #RedSox announced today that John Farrell will not return as manager in 2018. A search for a new manager will begin immediately.

Despite being a part of the 2007 World Series staff, the lead manager for the 2013 World Series title and winning division titles, it was not enough for John Farrell to keep his job. The Red Sox will now begin their search for a new manager. Will tonight’s game between the Cleveland Indians and New York Yankees determine the fate of Joe Girardi’s future in New York. Below are some tweets from insiders that cover the Bronx Bombers.
My guesses as to Joe Girardi’s future:
A) if the #Yankees get blown out in Game 3 & swept, he’s out.
B) if they lose the series generally, it’s 65-35 he’s out.
C) if they win the series, and lose in the ALCS, he will be asked back & might stay or might leave of his own accord.
