Retired Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, who spent four seasons playing under John Farrell, had this to say on the team moving on from the skipper:
“John was a good manager to me…managing in a big market is hard.”- @davidortiz on the Red Sox firing John Farrell pic.twitter.com/uTBb3KVG1P

However, it should be noted the 10-time All-Star and three-time World Series champion is employed by the Red Sox as a special consultant/advisor.
You have to do, what you feel is right for the team. We are Red Sox fans and always will be. Good Luck to John Farrell!!!!
