Firing Farrell Not Nearly Enough To Fix Red Sox' Soft Clubhouse — Dolloff

CINCINNATI OH – SEPTEMBER 23 Eduardo Rodriguez

CINCINNATI OH – SEPTEMBER 23 Eduardo Rodriguez

This season, the Red Sox won 93 games, the American League East title, and one postseason game.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell was ejected from Monday's Game 4 matchup against the Houston Astros in the bottom of the second inning after arguing a Dustin Pedroia called third strike.

They are Jose Altuve, whom another old Houston second baseman named Joe Morgan calls the best player in the game, and Carlos Correa.

All right, I suppose I can acknowledge some level of facetiousness here.

Last year, despite the rise of the Chicago Cubs as World Series champions for the first time in 108-years, Sports Illustrated tagged the Houston Astros as baseball's next biggest thing. He's better suited leading by example than being the guy who has to "run" the clubhouse. The American League is stacked. The Indians held a 2-1 edge over the Yankees going into Game 4 of the AL Division Series on Monday night.

Boston's season is over, and fans will now spend the winter months wondering what-if. The criticism is harsher here, the second-guessing more rampant.

Sale entered in relief of Red Sox starter and reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello, whose outing lasted just three innings after giving up two runs on five hits with three walks and four strikeouts.

The Red Sox more than doubled the four runs they scored over the course of the first two games on the road with the help of home runs from Rafael Devers and Jackie Bradley Jr.

"Obviously, you don't replace a guy like Edwin, but we have a fairly deep lineup". You shouldn't. Forget dwelling on what happened.

It was a good year for a good team. It was David Ortiz's final year, Boston looked better than Cleveland with two of the Indians' top three starters out. The status of John Farrell should be resolved soon. This year's team, wearing "Houston Strong" patches to support the city that was flooded in Hurricane Harvey, is hoping to finish the job.

This story will be updated.

Erasing the pain of 2015 and pushing these Astros - still electric and thrilling but tougher and wiser - all the way to the ALCS. "As soon as we gave up the lead in the fifth, it seemed like the air was shot out of us".

Carlos Carrasco appears to be the perfect man to shut the door on the Yankees and give the Indians some needed days off before the start of the ALCS.

It seems the vast majority of Red Sox fans are down on Xander Bogaerts. "He owns the moment". For a player of such talent and promise, he had a rough season at the plate (.273, 10 homers).

The good news, the Red Sox losing will allow him to pay attention to his professor. He's not a free agent until after the 2020 season. Still, he made a career-best 32 starts, with a career-best 17-6 record and 173.2 innings pitched. In this case, that is where some controversy arose.

I won't go so far as to say the Red Sox weren't "likable" in 2017. But it's going to have to suffice.

David Price and Hanley Ramirez. They managed only four line drives in the four games.

Jay Bruce batted in Encarnacion's cleanup spot in Game 3 and struck out all four times up, stranding three runners. Devers is the 1977 version of Butch Hobson, enthralling and erratic at once.

In the top of the ninth, Kimbrel hit a batter and allowed a single.

Farrell has one year left on his contract after the Red Sox's decision in December to guarantee his 2018 club option. Here's to Eduardo Nunez sticking around in a super-utility role.

In the third, Benintendi had a hard-hit single to right.

There is no reason for Dave Dombrowski to activate his trade machine.

"The two big boys, Sale and Verlander, both get into the game".
