I think you've won me over, Gregs. A division title makes it kind of easy to forget how truly awful they were the last 2 years, and there's absolutely no way he'd have kept his job if he didn't have cancer. Fuck this guy, it's time to move on.

They clinched the AL East after losing to a walk off homer, awkwardly celebrated, then took their foot off the pedal. That's on the manager.

Put Porcello on the mound in Fenway for game 1, where he's been great this year, and maybe you can get the young offense going in familiar surroundings, instead of the tight buttholes you got in the first two games. The Indians were aggressive, the Sox weren't, and someone has to answer for that.

TheWolf wrote:I'm pretty much with FTT on this one. I don't think Farrell HAS to go, but I'm not opposed to a shake-up. While the team as a whole just flat out didn't show up for this series, and it's easy to put that blame on the manager, it's not his fault David Price has been a steaming pile of dog shit for his entire playoff career and Clay Buchholz hasn't OD'd on meth yet. I don't care how good of a pitching coach he's supposed to be; Porcello was the only guy in that rotation who we had any reason to expect even a decent playoff performance out of.

I remain optimistic about the future for the reasons FTT stated, but they really gotta find some arms this offseason, and do it without unloading all of their top young talent.


Farrell, a former pitching coach, and Carl Willis, the actual pitching coach, couldn't figure out the pitching staff until they brought Brian Bannister in this year. Francona got Josh Fucking Tomlin and his 90 mile an hour fastballs to bear down, but Farrell and Willis couldn't pull David Price's head out of his ass.


Carl Willis has always sucked as a pitching coach. He worked under Eric Wedge for years, so .......

Price was really good for Detroit in Game 3 of the 2014 ALDS, but he gave up a wall-scraping 2-R HR to Nelson Cruz and Baltimore beat him 2-1, and he was good for like 6 innings against KC in Game 2 of the ALCS last year. Other than that, no bueno.

You dont get it. He doesnt have the right mentality to be beloved in a town like this. A human being playing in this atmosphere. Not everyone can handle it.
