I saw it coming eventually but I thought he would get a bit more time to turn it around. Sort of a quick hook IMO #AveryDecision

#AveryDecision was a bad one. It didn’t work for the 2012 Red Sox.

This was the wrong decision. I think giving time Avery would have turn this losing around and back winning in Jan. #AveryDecision
