Boston Red Sox general manager Dave Dombrowski decided to terminate his field manager John Farrell after five seasons on the job. Even though Farrell led the Red Sox had led the Red Sox to one World Series title in 2013 and two American League East Division titles in 2016 and 2017, his failure to get the Red Sox past the first round of the playoffs in the last two years was his undoing. Farrell's contract was set to expire at the end of the 2018 Major League Baseball season which meant that unless Farrell was able to get a contract extension before the start of the 2018 Major League Baseball season, he would be a lame duck manager. It is a shame that Farrell falls on his sword for the failure of his team to get best the first round of the American League playoffs the last two seasons which cost him job. I am sure he will land on his feet with another team in the Major Leagues soon as a coach.
