John Farrell On Jon Lester: ‘Last I Checked He’s Still In Our Uniform’ (Video)

John Farrell doesn’t want to talk about the prospects of Jon Lester pitching for another team until it actually happens. The Red Sox ace has been mentioned in trade rumors, but Farrell is trying his best to keep it from being a distraction. “Last I checked, he’s still in our uniform,” Farrell said before Monday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays. “To speculate on any...

According to Red Sox manager John Farrell, the club isn’t closing in on any deals at this time. “I can tell you there’s nothing imminent as it relates to the rumors you mentioned,” Farrell said. “The rumors are...

Red Sox Notes: John Farrell Tries To Lessen Blow Of Trade Rumors

BOSTON — This time a year ago, most of the players in the home clubhouse at Fenway Park were insulated from trade deadline rumors. As a World Series contender, whatever moves the Red Sox made were expected to be additions, not subtractions. This year, the room is a bit more tense. Lagging 9 1/2 games back in the American League East and eight games out of the second AL wild card...

John Farrell Disappointed By Boston’s Record, Surprised By Brock Holt (Video)

This year’s Boston Red Sox aren’t very different from last season’s World Series champions, except for one major thing: their record. The Red Sox are 43-52 after Sunday’s win over the Houston Astros, which is good for last place in the American League East. At the start of last year’s All-Star break, they were sitting pretty at the top at 59-38. That’s precisely why manager...

Farrell Takes Bold Position On WS Home-Field

Major kudos to Red Sox manager John Farrell for confronting the 300-pound All-Star Game elephant in the room. Farrell is advocating an alternative to using The Midsummer Classic as the determinant of home-field advantage in the World Series.

Farrell Likes Between-Innings Countdown Clock

Red Sox manager John Farrell believes there are a lot of things Major League Baseball can do to speed up the game. One of his ideas is a between-innings "countdown" clock. Such a clock could be set at—say 2 minutes and 10 seconds—insuring that each half-inning starts promptly. The start of each inning would no longer be subject to the vagaries of a given pitcher'...

Farrell: No Room For Two Sox Center Fielders

Red Sox manager John Farrell made it clear on Tuesday that there's room for only one center fielder on the Red Sox Opening Day roster. One or the other of Grady Sizemore or Jackie Bradley, Jr. will make the cut. As quoted by The Providence Journal's Brian MacPherson, Farrel said, "it's probably an either-or"—but all current indications heavily favor Sizemore...

Farrell's Awesome Rebuttal to Losing Out on AL Manager of the Year

Earlier this evening, I went on a rant about how blasphemous it was that Red Sox Manager John Farrell lost out on Manager of the Year Award to Terry Francona (who yes, we all love, but COME ON). Now, I'm not going to get into it again, but leave it to Farrell to give the best runner-up rebuttal ever. Farrell joined CSNNE's Bob Neumeier to talk about the award results...
