Red Sox fire manager Farrell
The Boston Red Sox announced Wednesday that they have fired manager John Farrell, less than 48 hours after the Red Sox lost their bestof-five American League Division Series to the Houston Astros in four games. The Red Sox said the search for a replacement will begin immediately. Farrell, 55, guided Boston to a World Series win in 2013, his first year as Red Sox manager. But the team has lost in the ALDS in each of the past two seasons.
