Our Final Farewell To The 2017 Boston Red Sox, Manager John Farrell And Pete Blackburn — Section 10 Podcast Ep. 132
It’s a sad day. Just a sad, sad day. On Episode 132 of the Section 10 Podcast, we’ve got a bunch of goodbyes we’ve got to say. Goodbye to the 2017 Boston Red Sox season. Goodbye to Johnny Steelcock. And, most importantly, goodbye to Pete Blackburn, who’s moving on to focus on other projects. But before he does, we pay tribute to our friend and co-host who has been there since Episode 1 and a couple of dozen episodes in between.
After Pete gives us his favorite Section 10 moment, we talk about the end of the Red Sox season, how last year hurt way more than this year, the bidding war that’s about to break out for Giancarlo Stanton this offseason, our reaction to the Red Sox firing John Farrell, how the Red Sox fucked up by not keeping Torey Lovullo around, how Dave Dombrowski’s press conference left us with more questions than answers, an assessment of Farrell’s time in Boston, and potential replacements at the managerial position.
We then get into the top moments of the 2017 season and reminisce on the good times, and finish it off with some Down in the DM — Why didn’t the Red Sox use Addison Reed in the 8th inning of Game 4? Who’s most likely to be traded or not brought back? Who are your untouchables for the offseason and why? Is it time for the Red Sox to move on from Dustin Pedroia? Why didn’t Betty Teddy be bunting at the top of the order? What do I do with myself with the baseball season being over?
