    Back to back division titles don't go as far as they used to.

    3 postseason appearances and a WS ring in 5 years. Meanwhile Robin Ventura slept in the dugout for 5 years and was only out of a job because he didn’t feel like doing it anymore.

    I'm gonna go ahead and guess there was some sort of personality issue there.

    Good thing that he wasn't mentioned in the SOX's search a year ago.

    Also notice they’re of course not considering any fuckhead fan favorite like Jason Varitek, because that’s not an actual manager on a serious team.

    I hate Gardy but he doesn’t suck. Will be interesting if he gets the Boston job - doesn’t seem like a guy who’d want to put up with the shit of that market.

    I didn't want him for the Sox job. Too old school and loves to bunt.

    Agree with 901.

    And his twins teams were good, but they didn’t do shit in the playoffs

    Red Sox never should have fired Francona.

    Grady is a big time bunt and move runners ahead 1 base type manager.

    Grady's teams weren't that great. They had a team built for their faggy dome.

    Autocorrect probably did it and I'm too lethargic to notice/care.

    Also, Gardy is only 59. I thought that nigga was at least mid 60s.

    Don't understand Sox fans love for Gardenhire. Perhaps it's the 3 straight second place finishes from 02 to 04 behind the Twins and another in 2010. But never thought he showed any sort of exceptional managerial ability.

    He's a dinosaur. Absolutely the last guy I'd want in charge of a rebuilding club if I'm Avila.

    Probably the 6 of 9 division titles he won from 02-10 while we basically played second fiddle save our 2 wins.

    Yeah, they sucked in the postseason they lost 12 straight playoffs with him.

    Either way, Gardy over Robin

    I think mainly because he was able to make winners out of pretty slim, cheap teams, which is also why they would always get destroyed in the playoffs.

    With the old man dead, there's no reason for the Tigers to spend money ever again. Can't see why anybody would actually want that job.

    Dusty Baker is fucking 70 years old, I can't imagine he's been all that effective at the ins and outs of the job.
