I’ll have to Google, but didn’t he express the desire to return to the Red Sox?

This is why I would never want to be in charged, I have seen to many players and coaching staff let go and we all go, “What the ____?”

Some they get right, some they don’t.

I can’t find anything right now because it’s a ton of editorial stuff about his retirement and where the Sox went wrong. It was a year or two ago he expressed interest in returning and retiring in a Red Sox uniform.
