Little will not return to Red Sox
By Gordon Edes, Globe Staff, 10/27/2003

Red Sox officials told Grady Little late this morning that they will not renew his contract for next season, ending his term as Red Sox manager after two years, according to a source with close ties to Little.

An official announcement from the club is expected later today.

Little was let go after guiding the Sox to within a game of the World Series. The Sox fell, 6-5, to the Yankees in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series, and fans widely blamed Little for leaving ace pitcher Pedro Martinez in the game too long.

A search for a successor is expected to begin immediately.

I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

Goodbye! :-D

I just had to finish the song. :-)

Ok, so who's next? Little, Manuel, and Hargrove so far.......
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I was hoping someone would finish it.

Bowa seems to be next.

Interestingly, Manuel seems to be a top choice of the Sox; I wonder how much his relationship with Manny comes into play. I'm betting a lot.

Yes, and so have Manuel and Hargrove.

I was asking which manager would be next to join those 3 in the unemployment line.

No, not really. I would say that Bowa is probably gone, but just interested in who else might be headed out.
