Sox Press Conference - 11am 10/12 - RR out as Sox manager

You are probably right. When have the Sox given their new manager much leeway with their coaching staff? Looks like now they will.

Right. I'm very surprised at this move, like you and everyone else. But you can't keep guys like Cooper "off limits" from being fired. 

Go bring in Girardi, go get AJ Hinch. Let them bring in their own staff if they want.

I agree. Would there be coaching staff changes? Who are you going to can after 2020? Maybe Coop retires, that's it, and why retire when things are just about to go really well.  I think RR has better job security than anyone posting on this board who isn't self employed.

Besides, if it was a big change, chances are it would have leaked by now.

I better start looking for jobs. Haha... I didn’t see him getting fired either.

Hopefully he has a role in the organization as I think he has some use. 

He can go make pies for the catering department

I feel legit terrible for Ricky. I wanted him gone but imagine how devastated he must be that this happened again. Two weeks before the season ended, Hahn said Rick deserved to be here enjoying the success. Rick literally lost his job because of the last 13 games of this season. This being said, if you want to be a champion, you cannot have this kind of managing going on. We need to go get a real winner and not some wannabe.

Also, Steve Stone apparently is a mouth piece for the org.

I’m shocked people argue otherwise. He basically predicted every single move/non move the last two years.

Jirschele or Sandy is my guess

Sandy makes a TON of sense, that's a great call

As long as we get more assistant coaches to 'part ways' once the new manager seems them and says "No chance in hell" , we're good.

who is out there right now that can push the sox to the next level

Sandy Alomar Jr is bilingual and did well with the Indians this year filling in for Tito.

Wow. His managing down the stretch and in the Oakland series was so objectively head-scratchingly bad, it was like a death wish. Think back to when they clinched and Hahn said all that stuff about how the Cubs treated Rickey. 100% believe he lost his job in a 3 week stretch.

This is the strongest signal yet that "business as usual" is over in the JR orgs.  The bulls moves were another strong signal but this is the strongest yet as there are a lot of reasons "on paper" you could keep Rick.  But this is 100% the right move Rick was holding this club back from its WS title hopes.

I’m not as excited as most here, but I think this is probably for the best

Yep, I'm pretty whatever about it, but glad to see they're not going to be stagnant.
