Over five years, John Farrell emerged as one of the most successful managers in Red Sox history, winning a World Series and becoming the first to win three AL East titles. Yet on Tuesday night, one day after the Red Sox had been dismissed in an AL Division Series for the second straight year (this time by the Astros in four games), they elected to fire Farrell.

President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski recommended the firing, and ownership supported the decision. The prevailing theme among team officials was that the organization simply had arrived at a point where it seemed change would be beneficial moving forward.

“You weigh a lot of different things that become involved, and to me, I thought it was the appropriate time to make a change for the betterment of the organization moving forward,” said Dombrowski, who declined to detail those considerations….

Boston Red Sox Manager steps down…..

I don’t really care about the Red Sox since I’m a Mets fan….

But I suppose there ARE a lot of Yankees fans out there…

And they ALWays have to keep an eye on Boston…..

The team collapsed this year though….

That much I DO know….

And there ain’t nothiong like winning…

I told them a lot of things that were on my mind, we talked obviously a lot about the organization, and then the team, and what went right, what didn’t go right, and then I told them I thought it was time for a new voice. And that’s not an easy thing to say. But I thought it was the right thing to do.”

Francona said he didn’t want to try to reclaim a lost clubhouse next season because he felt not all of the team leadership was on the same page.

“To be honest with you, I didn’t know, or I’m not sure, how much support there was from ownership,” Francona said. “I don’t know that I felt real comfortable. You’ve got to be all in in this job, and I voiced that today. There were some things that, maybe, going through things here, to make it work it’s got to be everybody together, and I was questioning some of that a little bit.”
