Make that suspension permanent

Seven games through his 10-game suspension, RedHawks manager Tim Ireland was sacked by the parent Texas Rangers over what Rangers management called "philosophical differences."

Mike Boulanger, hitting coach for the 'Hawks, who has been filling in for Ireland, will take over the position full-time. This is his first managing job at the Triple-A level.

They aren't kidding about the philosophical differences: Ireland is a Descartes man, while the brass prefers Kant.
