Red Sox fire manager John Farrell

The Boston Red Sox have fired manager John Farrell after five years with the team.

What It Means:

Yes, this is the same John Farrell who won a World Series with the Sox in his first year as manager in 2013. He also won back-to-back AL East titles over the last two seasons, and he managed the Sox to three 90-plus win seasons in his five years as manager. He will not be unemployed for long.

Farrell racked up a record of 432-378 in his five years at the helm of the Red Sox. He has 586 total wins as a manager, and he is 23-19 in his postseason managerial career.
