After word came out that Ruben Amaro’s agent was trying to shape him into a managerial candidate for some teams, a report came out today that he will be hired as the Red Sox first base coach. Maybe he just wanted to wear a uniform.
To go from having the most power in an organization to having close to the least is certainly a notable career trajectory. And really, how much damage could he do as first base coach?
We're hiring Ruben Amaro as first base coach. Wtf. You see how he hung onto his players too long in philly? Season over.No ones gettin to 2B

Really, though. This is like going from the CEO to the mail-room supervisor, a job Amaro himself is hardly qualified for.
