    I would love Farrell back as pitching coach. IMO, that is his true calling.

    That said, my understanding is that he's looking for another managing position. I'm guessing he would not want to return to the Red Sox either way.

    I believe Farrell's name has come up in respect to one of the managerial openings. I suspect Farrell would hardly be interested in a pitching coaches job while there is a possibility of being a manager again.

    No one wants to return to the team/company/organization/whatever that fired them in a lower capacity. No one...

    I can't disagree with that.

    LaVangie was moved out but he was given another job in the organization just as I hoped and indicated would likely be the case in a previous post. While Brian Bannister the ass't pitching coach who reportedly opposed the Spring Training approach to pitching was given the job of VP for pitching development in the minor leagues. Sounds like he got promoted to me. Cora may still be the manager but it looks like the FO hasn't given him a ringing endorsement on the way he handled pitching this past year. At least that is the way it looks to me from my point of view.

    It's not uncommon for managers to stay on while pitching coaches and hitting coaches get fired. So much specialization and compartmentalization now.

    And given that many other teams have already fired manager and the Angels seem prepared to make an offer to Joe Maddon, the Sox probably would have axed Cora already and started the process before all the candidates get other jobs...

    Cora is supposedly the one who wanted LaVangie as his pitching coach. Cora actively supported LaVangie's approach. No matter how once spins it this has to be seen as a FO rebuke towards Cora approach toward pitching in 2019.

    First things first. Sox fired their Chief of Baseball Ops. Firing both DD and Cora and the entire coaching staff may just have been seen as a bridge too far.

    Yes, I think it's safe to say it would have been seen as wholesale panic.

    Well now, let me think about that. If my g-f, whom I wanted as a life-partner, were to dump me, I don't think I'd mind coming back as her 'bit on the side'.
