Red Sox looking into tapping John Farrell as manager

| No Comments

ESPN reported that the Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays were in negotiations Friday. Blue Jays manager John Farrell is at the center of those negotiations.

According to the Associated Press, the Red Sox have asked the Blue Jays for permission to talk to Farrell about their managerial position. Farrell has one year left on his contract.

The Red Sox fired their manager, Bobby Valentine, after they finished 69-93 and last in the American League East. Valentine took over the job on Dec. 1, 2012.

Farrell is very familiar with the Red Sox. He was Boston's pitching coach from 2006-10 and he just completed his second season as the manager of the Blue Jays, a frequent opponent.
