Video: President Obama calls John Farrell

Koji "was the gift that kept on giving" Yes he was. I don't know how I'd handle a call from the President, but I'm sure it's the complete opposite way that a much more dignified John Farrell handled it.  I'm thinking some kind of humblebrag tweet would be in order. Ugh, late for the gym because President just kept on talking when he called. Blah...

Sox fan called WEEI the day after World Series win...to complain about John Farrell

Sam Galanis Contributing Writer It’s no secret that Red Sox fans are miserable people. They endured 86 long years of legitimately believing they’d never see the Red Sox win a World Series in their lifetime. Year after year they’d watch their team either fail miserably or come this close only to fall apart when it mattered most. But needless to say, those days are long over...

Red Sox’ John Farrell Among Finalists for AL Manager of the Year Award

Red Sox manager John Farrell has received a lot of praise for his role in the team’s remarkable turnaround this season that ended with a World Series championship. Even the President called to congratulate him. But the recognition isn’t over yet, as Farrell was named one of the finalists for the American League Manager of the Year Award on Tuesday. Oakland’s Bob Melvin and...

President Obama Call to Congratulate John Farrell

President Obama, who coincidentally visited Boston on the day of Game 6, called Red Sox manager John Farrell to congratulate him, even if according to him, the wrong colored Sox won. We all know Obama is a White Sox fan, so we appreciate him swallowing his pride in this instance. And regardless of your opinions on politics, it's nice to know that there is apparently a Red...

Red Sox Will Try to Add to Bullpen Mix During Offseason, According to Ben Cherington

The Red Sox’ bullpen at one point looked like a potential area of weakness. Then came the playoffs. While not perfect, the bridge to Koji Uehara was certainly stable during the 2013 postseason. Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington would like to maintain that stability in 2014. According to Cherington, the Red Sox will look to add to their bullpen mix this offseason. “We have...

Farrell No Brainer for AL Manager of the Year

I feel like this year, the MLB shouldn’t even put the AL Manager of the Year Award to a vote. It seems like a no brainer. But, I guess in the spirit of tradition, they’ve rounded up three candidates: Former Sox manager/current Indians manager Terry Francona, A’s manager Bob Melvin and of course, Sox manager John Farrell. I mean no disrespect to either Tito or Bob--they...

Your Morning Dump...Where it's time for Cherington to get back to work

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Even after 108 wins, general manager Ben Cherington barely had a moment to bask in the glory. The offseason work begins with today’s 5 p.m. deadline to tender $14.1-million qualifying offers to free agents...

Ben Cherington Expresses Interest in Re-Signing Red Sox’ Four Big Free Agents, But Thinks It’s ‘Unlikely’ All Will Return

BOSTON — In an ideal world, the Red Sox would re-sign Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, Stephen Drew and Jarrod Saltalamacchia this offseason. Unfortunately for Boston, we don’t exactly live in an ideal world. Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Monday that the club has interest in re-signing all four of its free agents who played a major role in Boston winning the World...

Jackie Bradley Jr. ‘Very Capable of Being an Everyday Guy,’ Says Red Sox Manager John Farrell

It could be Jackie Bradley Jr.‘s time to shine in 2014. Bradley got his first taste of major league action in 2013, and if Jacoby Ellsbury signs elsewhere this offseason, there’s a chance that the 23-year-old could be thrust into the Red Sox’ starting lineup on a full-time basis. If that ends up being the case, manager John Farrell is confident that he’ll be deploying an...

Pawtucket manager DiSarcina leaves Red Sox for Angels

Pawtucket Red Sox manager Gary DiSarcina has been hired by the Los Angeles Angels as their third base coach.

Bench coach Torey Lovullo was seen as a candidate to manage, but Cherington...

According to a press release, Obama lauded the great job that Farrell did in his first year as Boston’s manager, praised Koji Uehara‘s...

Ben Cherington Says Red Sox View Will Middlebrooks as Third Baseman, Not Ready to Consider Move to First Base

BOSTON — Don’t bank on Will Middlebrooks sliding across the diamond just yet. The Red Sox extended a qualifying offer to Mike Napoli on Monday, and still hope that the power-hitting first baseman will be back in Boston next season. If Napoli signs elsewhere, though, the Red Sox will be forced to explore other options. One idea that’s been tossed around by both fans and members...

Report: Red Sox Among Teams to Contact Free-Agent Pitcher Tim Hudson

Ben Cherington said Monday that starting pitching appears to be an area of strength and depth for the Red Sox. That doesn’t mean that the Boston won’t still see what’s out there this winter. According to David O’Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Red Sox are among eight teams who have contacted free-agent pitcher Tim Hudson. O’Brien reports that the Giants,...
