Braves general manager, scout chief resign amid MLB probe

  Braves general manager, scout chief resign amid MLB probe John Coppolella was forced to resign as Braves general manager Monday after an investigation by Major League Baseball revealed serious rules violations in the international player market. Gordon Blakeley, a special assistant to the GM who was the team's international scouting chief, also has resigned.

And now that job is open again. John Farrell was dismissed Wednesday morning, and president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski indicated the search for a new manager would start immediately. Dombrowski isn’t the only one looking for a new manager.

The Tigers, Phillies and Mets all have openings, too.

Here’s a quick look at potential replacements for Farrell. 

Brad Ausmus

Why he makes sense: Yes, he was just fired after four seasons in Detroit. But the guy who is in charge of hiring the new Red Sox manager, Dombrowski, is the guy who hired Ausmus as the Tigers manager in November 2013. And while it’s true that Ausmus’ time with Detroit didn’t produce a championship (or even a single playoff victory), he’s still well-regarded in the sport, and there’s a long history of managers doing much, much better in their second or third job after struggling to win in their first opportunity or two (hi, Joe Torre!). And there are definitely parallels between Ausmus and Terry Francona, the man who brought two World Series titles to Boston. Francona had been a manager before, failing to crack the .500 mark for four years in Philadelphia, before the Red Sox hired him. And it can’t hurt that Ausmus grew up in Connecticut as a Red Sox fan, right?

Report: Snitker will likely remain as Braves manager

  Report: Snitker will likely remain as Braves manager With the Atlanta Braves' front office in flux, the team is expected to make coaching staff changes this week, according to MLB.com's Mark Bowman. However, Bowman reports manager Brian Snitker is likely safe. The Braves finished a disappointing 72-90, and have yet to announce if they will exercise the 2018 option on Snitker's contract. The 61-year-old has been with the organization for more than four decades and said he would like to return.''I'm proud of what I've accomplished over the last 42 years,'' Snitker said Sunday, according to The Associated Press.''If it's still continue to manage this team, fine,'' he said. ''I'm not going to retire.

Seven Possible Candidates To Replace John Farrell As Red Sox - nesn.com. Here’s a quick look at potential replacements for Farrell . Boston Red Sox Manager Replacement , Waste Management - wastemanagement.site.

Jason Varitek

Why he makes sense: Varitek spent his entire playing career — 15 years, including the 2004 and 2007 World Series-winning teams — in Boston and wore the captain’s C on his jersey for years. He would be immediately embraced by the Boston faithful. He’s been a special assistant to Dombrowski the past couple of years, which is a pretty good “in” for the job. But here’s the thing: He’s never managed at any level. In fact, he’s not even coached at any level; he joined the Boston front office immediately after he retired as a player. That would be a pretty big jump. 

Alex Cora

Why he makes sense: Cora is seen as one of those “eventually will be a very good MLB manager” guys, and Boston could give him the opportunity. Cora played for the Red Sox from 2005 to 2008, and was part of that 2007 title-winning team. He’s a bench coach for the Astros right now, which means he’s kind of busy at the moment. Houston manager A.J. Hinch was asked about Cora’s contributions last week, and his reply certainly sounded like he was describing a future manager: “His first year of coaching has gone well given his ability to connect with players and given his baseball intellect. He's very sharp, sees the game in an extraordinarily deep way, has really connected well with players in our clubhouse and spent a lot of time developing relationships and being the bench coach liaison to the clubhouse that I asked him to be.”

Correa, Altuve, Astros rout Red Sox to take 2-0 ALDS lead

  Correa, Altuve, Astros rout Red Sox to take 2-0 ALDS lead Carlos Correa homered, doubled and drove in four runs, Jose Altuve got two more hits and the Houston Astros hammered the Boston Red Sox 8-2 Friday to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the AL Division Series. George Springer also homered to back Dallas Keuchel in Houston’s second straight romp by the exact same score."One through nine, everybody can do damage, everybody can go deep," Correa said. "That’s the good thing about our lineup, there’s no holes in our lineup, and we feel very confident no matter if we went 0 for 4 the day before or if we went 4 for 4.

The Boston Red Sox ’s search for a new manager officially is underway. The Red Sox announced Wednesday that John Farrell would not return as the club’s skipper in 2018 Now, Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski must turn his attention to finding Farrell ’s replacement .

Ex- Red Sox manager John Farrell speaks out about his firing. 5 potential fits who could be available for the Celtics in the NBA draft June 19, 2018 | 6:55 AM. College Sports.

Dave Martinez

Why he makes sense: When Martinez was a hot name on the managerial rumor mill a couple years ago, here’s what I wrote about the Nationals’ job opening: "We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again (if he doesn’t get this gig) — Martinez will one day be a fantastic major-league manager and will make the GM who hires him look incredibly wise." Yep, that still fits. Martinez has a great job right now, as Joe Maddon’s right-hand guy in the Cubs’ dugout, and it would take an ideal situation to get him to leave. Maybe the allure of being Boston’s manager is that situation.

Ron Gardenhire

Why this makes sense: Gardenhire had a remarkable extended run of success as Minnesota’s manager, winning six division titles in 13 seasons. The guy watching that success closely? Dombrowski, who was Detroit’s front-office guru that entire time. Gardenhire turns 60 in a couple of weeks and spent this season as Torey Lovullo’s bench coach in Arizona. 

Red Sox beat Astros 10-3, avoid elimination in ALDS Game 3

  Red Sox beat Astros 10-3, avoid elimination in ALDS Game 3 BOSTON - Hanley Ramirez waved a "Believe in Boston" flag during pregame introductions, drawing cheers from a Fenway Park crowd fearful of a second straight post-season sweep. Then he gave the Red Sox exactly what they wished for: more October baseball. "I just tried to wake everybody up," Ramirez said after delivering four hits and three RBIs to lead the AL East champions to a 10-3 victory over the Houston Astros in Game 3 of the AL Division Series on Sunday."I think that's my job: Find a way to come through in big situations," the designated hitter said. "It's the playoffs. It's go time.

Dave Dombrowski, the Red Sox ’s president of baseball operations, can play the “Fire John Farrell ” card at any time. Price will need time to build up to seven or eight innings once he returns. The Red Sox ’s offense is another concern.

Days after the Boston Red Sox were eliminated from the playoffs, the team announced that John Farrell would not return as the team's manager . USA TODAY Sports.

Sandy Alomar

Why he makes sense: Alomar has earned an incredibly high level of respect in baseball, not just during his playing career but as a coach, too. He’s been on the shortlist for other manager jobs — in Chicago, Boston (before John Farrell was hired), Cleveland and Toronto — but has yet to get the job. Alomar will be an outstanding manager if (when, hopefully) he gets the chance. Here’s the problem, though: He’s the first-base coach in Cleveland right now, and that’s a ball club that’s rather focused on a potentially long postseason run. 

Gary DiSarcina

Why he makes sense: When Farrell was thrown out of Game 4 of the ALDS, DiSarcina was in charge for the rest of the game. The Massachusetts native has held a variety of coaching roles in his post-playing career; he’s managed in the Boston system (Single-A, 2007-09 and Triple-A, 2013), he’s been in the front office (Angels' assistant to GM) and he’s been a big-league coach (Angels, both third-base and first-base coach). And this year, he’s been Farrell’s bench coach. He’s interviewed for MLB managerial jobs in the past, too.

Red Sox ace Sale available out of bullpen for Game 4

  Red Sox ace Sale available out of bullpen for Game 4 With the season on the line, it's all hands on deck for the Boston Red Sox. Rick Porcello, the 2016 AL Cy Young winner, will get the start Monday afternoon against the Houston Astros, but if things get dicey the team has a back-up plan: Chris Sale. John Farrell said Chris Sale available in relief. He says everything in his fabric makes him want to stay away from David Price, though. TBD— Evan Drellich (@EvanDrellich) October 9, 2017Sale would be pitching on only three days' rest, something he did not do during the regular season.
