    La Russa has certainly embraced sabermetrics moreso than most, if not all, other old school managers.

    If he is not in the dugout making his asinine signature moves (which he made with some bizarre frequency, it was almost like he wanted one to be his legacy), I think he'll be pretty harmless. Possibly even beneficial...

    This site has its share of negative nellies who express their concerns crudely. We should be willing to give the moves a fair chance before filling the site with negative vibrations. LaRussa is a hall of fame baseball man abd ay well be a help in selecting coaches and players.

    Red Sox stayed under the MLB luxury tax in 2017, resetting the penalties. “No,” said Dombrowski when asked if they would stay under again
    Fire Farrell - fucking check mark!
    Trade Pedroia
    Sign JD Martinez to play 1B/DH
    Sign Alex Cora for MGR - check plus!

    That was kind of obvious. That was the whole reason for resetting the penalties.

    DD gets a pass by reason of the constraints he faced during last season. He will have more freedom for the 2018 season but it is still somewhat limited by the large contracts overhanging for another year. As far as LaRussa is concerned, I think the move made was a good one. Adding a very experienced and capable former anager in an advisory role makes sense to me.

    It was obvious, but some posters had it as a topic of discussion a few weeks ago.

    Dombrowski doesn't need a pass for this year or last year. He put contending teams on the field both years. The team getting knocked out in the first round of the playoffs is not his fault.

    As far as hiring LaRussa goes, once again, I just don't see the need. Roenicke was hired as Cora's bench coach to provide that experience and to complement Cora. IMO, Dombrowski should have hired a VP that could challenge his views a little more, rather than someone who seems like he would be in complete agreement with them.

    I did not mean that as a knock against you for posting that.

    I was just saying that I think we all say that coming.
