This is just to keep the fans with pitchforks at home, and they can plod through Ventura's final year and then maybe replace him. I knew the Sox weren't going to pay him to not manage next year, but they had to offer up some kind of sacrificial lamb.

You don't set up kids to fail like that, hitting is hard enough at the big league level to give the pitcher advantages.
Yep, typical Sox token firing as the organization continues to be a mess.
