The Boston Red Sox will not be bringing back manager John Farrell in 2018. They just won back-to-back division titles, but the problem is they didn't get past the first round. Boston got swept to the Cleveland Indians in 2016 and Boston lost to the Houston Astros in four games in the 2017 ALDS.
This might be a mistake in the long run. Boston lost to two better baseball teams in the postseason the last two years and who can they find that is better? Boston won the World Series with him as manager in 2013. His record with the Boston Red Sox in five years was 432-378.
