Ruben Amaro, Jr. To Be Red Sox First Base Coach

Ruben Amaro, Jr.
OK, this one is pretty weird. Multiple sources are now reporting that former Philadelphia Phillies GM Ruben Amaro, Jr. will be become the first base coach of the 2016 Boston Red Sox. Manager John Farrell and Amaro played together on the Indians—but, is really this just a buddy thing? Amaro has had an abysmal record as Philly GM—taking them from MLB World Series-worthy to Little League World Series-worthy. Why it was necessary to fire a loyal and competent coach like Arnie Beyeler for this guy is beyond us.
