Time for Major League Baseball to give Ozzie Guillen another chance

It will take an executive with a strong personality and an open mind to hire a larger-than-life manager likely to immediately change the culture of an organization.

Heyman | Hot Seat Isn’t Hot But Here Are 14 Names To Consider

AL Notes and NL Notes.

1. John Farrell, Red Sox.

There have been a few bad signs, most notably when star Dustin Pedroia yelled over to his friend Manny Machado that “it wasn’t me, it was them,” seeming to pin the team’s beanball silliness on nondescript reliever Matt Barnes and someone above Barnes (presumably Farrell). Even Red Sox people admit that didn’t look good at all. It also wasn’t great when Farrell had an argument in the dugout in Oakland with Drew Pomeranz. And there’s no question they’ve had a less than great start despite Chris Sale and Craig Kimbrel performing almost impeccably, but yet, there isn’t a sense now that anything could be afoot. “He’s done a good job. We won the division last year. We’ve had injuries,” Dombrowski said. “We keep playing hard. The players respect him. We communicate well. He’s on top of things.” The team’s heated up since the report from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports and MLB Network appeared, too. Dombrowski is one of the best around at team building, but managerial hiring is an imprecise science and even in his day he’s hired a managerial mistake or two around his appointments of Jim Leyland (twice) and Brad Ausmus.
