MLB Rumors: Could John Farrell End Up With The Boston Red Sox?
The Toronto Blue Jays and the Boston Red Sox are currently talking about a deal that would send Blue Jays manager John Farrell to the Red Sox. The teams would just have to go over some kind of compensation for Farrell and it should not be much of a struggle if the Blue Jays do not consider Farrell as the manager of the future of the franchise.
In his first two seasons in his managerial career with the Blue Jays, Farrell recorded a 154-170 record and did not lead the team to the playoffs in either year. Farrell lost more games in 2012 than he did in 2011. With the Red Sox in them middle of a manager hunt, Farrell has always been the man that the Red Sox drooled over and with the opening, the Red Sox are going to try and do everything they can to bring in Farrell.
The Red Sox have brought in candidates over the past two weeks to interview for the opening position just in case the franchise cannot reel in Farrell. Former major league catcher Brad Ausmus recently interview for the job and it went well. Ausmus is another candidate that is portrayed as a good fit to be a manager in the future.
The Los Angeles Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach also interviewed for the job and is another highly touted managerial candidate.
Red Sox bench coach Tim Bogar did not interview for the job.
Whoever is the manager of the 2013 Red Sox, they will have a lot of work to do especially after having a highly disappointing 2012 season where the team ended up putting a Triple-A team together in the final week of the season.
