If anyone thinks Hahn is under pressure consider the Yankees situation:

"Not even the addition of ace Gerrit Cole for a $324 million, nine-year contract was enough to make the difference.

Now general manager Brian Cashman faces a series of key decisions. Big league batting champion DJ LeMahieu is eligible for free agency along with pitchers Masahiro Tanaka and James Paxton. New York has a $17 million option on pitcher J.A. Happ the team made sure would not become guaranteed and a $10 million option on 37-year-old outfielder Brett Gardner, the last link to the Yankees’ 2009 champions.  Giancarlo Stanton is expected to keep the remaining $218 million and seven guaranteed seasons left in his contract rather than opt out, and reliever Zack Britton appears likely to stay under either player or club options. "

Despite an $84 million payroll as adjusted for the shortened season, third-highest in the major leagues, the Yankees lost to the $29 million Rays, a team whose spending was third from bottom. Tampa Bay beat the Yankees eight of 10 times during the regular season,..."

Cooper retiring maybe?

 

That's a lot more likely than anything involving Ricky

Good:

  1. Crotchet 100% healthy
  2. Ricky is being fired
  3. ”Team will be aggressive coming off playoff appearance”

Bad:

  1. Crotchet needs TJS
  2. Ricky is being extended
  3. ”Team will need to be conservative in wake of COVID”

Or maybe it's just the normal end of year press conference?

As much as I despise Ricky’s in-game decision-making, I’d probably be more excited about a Cooper exit at this point.  It’s a time for a new voice at the major league level.

Maybe. Waiting 11 days is weird though.

Other items to possibly be discussed:

- Eloy injury

- Giolito as an extension candidate

major announcements before the playoffs are done is faux-pas. I think a manager being fired qualifies. Coach retiring, no. 
 

I don’t expect much other than basic stuff.

I keep seeing people say if Ricky was going to be fired, they would have done it already. I was thinking exactly what you said, though. I don't remember many managers getting canned during the playoffs

After listening to the podcast with Stone (where Stone laid Renteria's shit bare)  I don't see any way the Sox bring back Renteria.

I would not want Getz promoted if that is what their thinking  is. Getz reminds me of Ventura in some ways.

Why would they promote their player development guy to be manager of all people?

I guess I never watch them...I usually take a couple months off from anything Sox related until the hot stove starts to heat up lol. Usually need to get the losing feeling out of my system.
