I didn't even know there was anyone even considering John Farrell as their manager. It makes sense because he did a great job this year, but I haven't even thought about that notion at all. I think the Sox's coaching staff will stay pretty much the same this off-season.
"While I do have aspirations to manage in the major leagues in the future, my commitment to John, Tom, Larry, Theo, Tito, and the Red Sox, needs to be greater than one year for their faith in hiring me as their pitching coach. Therefore I have declined the opportunity to interview for the position of Pittsburgh Pirates manager. I look forward to contributing to and competing for another World Series title here in Boston."
