If that is true, I would be absolutely shocked if it were not Manto or Parent. Everyone else is a Sox darling, having either played for the team or been here for years and is seemingly untouchable.
I also don't see such a firing doing anything at all to make this club play like a contender. One coach is not responsible for this, and that's been articulated here many times.
One change I'd like to see come "real soon" would be Beckham's stance. Oh my, what a hot mess! Did he study old tape of a slumping Rios and come up with that? Queue the Gordon apologists who point out that he's batting .300 and just coming back from an injury. "Give him some time".
