The Boston Red Sox fired John Farrell on Wednesday morning, just a few days after the club was eliminated from the ALDS by the Houston Astros.

The Red Sox have gone 1-6 in the playoffs the last two years despite winning 93 games in each of those seasons.

Dave Dombrowski wouldn't reveal the exact reason why Farrell wasn't brought back for the final year of his contract, but he did say that no level of team success would have prevented the move.
