Why now?

They thought he earned a shot with a real roster and feel he didn't get it done.

I thought it was always obvious Renteria was a transitional manager that they'd get rid of when the team was ready. Good with kids. Good in the clubhouse. Not the type of guy you're going to hang on to. Not shocking in the slightest.

First call has to be to Ozzie.

No, it definitely does not.

I really do think Hinch and Cora being available is a reason Sox didn't hesitate to dump RR pretty fast

I feel like I'd be ok with Hinch.

Still, hell no.  This would be the worst of all of the possible moves here.  I would have rather brought Ricky back.  Hell I would rather stick Hawk on the bench than Ozzie.

The other thing I just thought  of from the wording, if they "agreed to part ways", I think that means the Sox are not on the hook for paying Ricky for the last year of his deal.  Or at the very least, he got a reduced buy-out.

I think it was just a nice way of saying the potential manager of the year has been fired. JR will pay him his money. He didn't make so much.

 

It's either that or the Sox said for him to continue, someone else will be running the bullpen, and he didn't want that.

Fuck Ozzie. Hell no to that shit. 

I liked Ozzie but he's a selfish prick and continues to be one during his radio interviews. 

You don't bring someone back that quit on your team.

I would bet the house on it being Alomar

I'd be pleased with either Alomar or Francona.

My preference would be Alomar.

But whatever they do, Reinsdorf is going to have to allow the next mgr to hire his own staff - especially the pitching coach.

I can"t see anyone on the outside coming in here and desiring to retain Cooper.

They need a clean sweep like they finally and mercifully did on the West Side.

As far as Sandy, he does have a body of work where the Sox can see how he runs a bullpen, and since he was a catcher, he should have a pretty good idea of what is proper and what is just stupid.

Well, I think we can all agree that this is a very new way that this front office is treating things.  Refreshing

This is definitely an acknowledgement this is the window and every year matters. Will it translate to offseason spending?

Total non-Sox thing to do, never happy to see someone lose their job, but I’m ecstatic that we may have FINALLY turned the corner

According to sox, since 2017 they’ve increased collaboration between scouting, player dev and front office. 
 

Maybe this is about to be the takeover of that collaboration to on the field. 
 

Jirachele possible.

Seems fitting that they are getting rid of the native as soon as they get to the promised land.

Sox fans: Jerry's stupid loyalty to former players is hurting the team. 

 

Also Sox fans: Hire every ex player/coach that has a history with the franchise.

I think its just a nicer way of saying he was fired personally. That's it.

Let's be realistic, JR, who has kept people like Boylen & Ventura around way too long, a guy who has an extreme track record of being loyal (I mean, KW still has his job) is not going to fire the manager who led the Sox to the playoffs for the first time in a dozen years -- in a year where expectations were 82-88 wins  (albeit 162 game season) and we had a top record in AL for a hot second. If you think that's the presser today? no way. 

I think it's much more likely to be Hahn lawyer talk. The biggest news we'll get is Hahn saying we're not spending because of Covid. That we won't be aggressive. There is a better likelihood the Sox open with Mazara in RF and with Quintana/some other inning filler in our rotation, ricky at the helm than with a new manager, bauer, and a shiny new RF toy. I'm not sure where the optimism comes on this board ... the sox have had the same game plan for decades and this presser is going to be fluff..

 

I hope i'm wrong on all the above. 

Where is the delete button? 

Okay, lets go get Bauer then and DFA Mazara haha
