Look if Stroman said it, there are LOTS of other players who aren't saying it out loud. 

Sure, until the Sox offer real American dollars that surpass the real American dollars another team offers. Things change real quickly then for the vast majority of players. 

But in summary, I agree. They should can him and hire someone else. But they won’t. And the Sox will be just fine.

How in the fuck has there not been a statement from the team?

No statement,  is a very clear statement.

This.  They've had a whole day since the story leaked.  The silence is deafening.

Stoney's tweets on the subject are semi-cringe.

He’s claiming this isn’t his second DUI? WTF?

Maybe he's referring to the last statement?

Really wish we just never fired Renteria. Then we would only be talking about improvements to the roster and not this whole headache.

You’re right. Lack of sleep got me there.

Firing Renteria was the right move, if were done to hire someone better.  We didn't get someone better unfortunately.  And we now have an embarrassing catastrophe.

Exactly. Only the Sox can fuck this up.

Did we fire our second manager in the last month yet?

Relax.  He'll be gone soon.  No one could survive the mess that is just getting started.

I've never liked Stone as a human. As an announcer hes fine and i like him. Everything else he can go pound sand. I blocked him on Twitter - can't stand how cocky and rude he is to fans. He has an ego just like TLR. All these old, entitled baby boomers with ego who think they're special can go kick rocks - don't need them. Time to turn over the keys to kids.

Definitely don't check out his twitter right now then! It's extremely condescending of fans that are miffed by the whole thing. I think your analysis is spot on though.

Where is Garfein? Duber? Merkin? 

Garfein has a podcast out with Peter Gammons and he briefly brought up that the DUI happened and explained his interview was recorded prior to the news which is why it didn't come up. Not much else was said.

I don't like any of this as much as the next guy but yall need to calm down with the wishing Reinsdorf was dead comments. It's a fucking game. People don't need to die over stupid decisions they make about a GAME. Even if it is the game we all love, and the team we've supported our entire lives, it's still a game. Stop wishing people dead over it. It's childish and a horrible way to represent the fanbase.

This is the Sox organization we are talking about here. Expect the unexpected.

I really hope this is the case

Passan was on Waddle and Silvy and actually seemed he didn’t anticipate how upset the fan base would be. He said people in the organization are saying the right things about being ok with the hire, but it’s probably not true.

Just a heads up, Jerry is expecting all this negative talk to go away within the next couple weeks so if you really are fed up with this trash gotta keep bringing the heat

He actually said it’s possible the only way Tony gets fired is if the fan base revolts. It didn’t seem like any actual information, just an opinion.

Im not sure it signals "active infighting" at all.

If the dorf says water is dry then water is indeed dry in his kingdom.  Theres no reason for anyone to fight about anything they cannot control.

I think the silence was premeditated.  They knew there would be a shitstorm and theyre waiting for it to blow over.

Maybe TLR is still deciding between drinking buddies for the coaching staff.  They might want the manager to put his staff in place before they let the GM ask the manager what moves he should make.
