    I think the Sox are stuck waiting on the investigation. If Roenicke has a part in it, then heís gotta go too. Theyíve got two options

    1. Wait for investigation and have a blended staff with leftover coaches and maybe an outside manager or bench coach and promote the other position from within

    2. Purge all coaches from last year now and build your staff from the ground up

    No point in considering Roenicke right now if heís at risk to get suspended too

    If Roenicke gets suspended, it wouldn't be the first time an MLB had to switch managers during the year. Maybe they can get a little Morgan Magic this year?

    The only reason you don't go with Roenicke for now is if you are worried about taking another PR hit.

    Screw PR.

    Not having a team and manager causes a ticket sales hit. Much, much worse...

    Exactly. Go with the flow.

    Whatís the record for number of managers used by a single team in a single calendar year? If things break wrong for this team, they could challenge it...

    so if electronic sign stealing methods were in place for the red sox during either 2018 or 2019 you would still be OK with roenicke managing the Red Sox?

    No, but until itís confirmed they are, why stand still? Deal with that situation when itís ofgicial

    Because how bad would it look for the Sox to fire two managers in the same offseason for disciplinary purposes

    i think if they did that the Red Sox FO would be the laughing stock of the sports world. IMO.

    Nah. They are a long ways away from LOLMETS territory. Though they did attempt to go there with the BV hire in 2012.

    If they were in place during 2019, why did they suck balls?

    If Roenicke doesn't get the job, that could signal that the Sox have a problem. He seems to be the logical stand in decision, but if the Sox truly had an electronic sign stealing system, he would have known about it and participated.

    If he's hired as the manager, I would venture to guess that the Sox are in the clear.

    All the stolen signs in the world canít turn Hector Velasquez and Ryan Weber into quality starting pitchers...
