The Boston Red Sox have held four interviews for their open managerial spot but still can’t get their minds of Toronto Blue Jays skipper John Farrell. They’re so focused on Farrell that the two sides have started talking about compensation.
An industry souce confirmed a report from the Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo that the Red Sox and Blue Jays have begun preliminary discussions about potential compensation for Toronto manager John Farrell.
The Sox have interviewed Yankees bench coach Tony Pena, Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach and Padres special assistant Brad Ausmus for the vacant managerial position and will interview Orioles third base coach DeMarlo Hale on Thursday. But Farrell, according to several reports, still appears to the be top target for the Sox. (WEEI)
Farrell was pitching coach for the Sox from 2006-2010 but not many players remain from those teams. And you know what with how many of those guys tuned out Terry Francona I’d have to say that’s a good thing.
