John Farrell To Manage Blue Jays?

New, comments

The Red Sox might be out one pitching coach, as Peter Gammons has heard from three GMs that Farrell will be the new manager of the Toronto Blue Jays.

Farrell has been with the Sox since 2007, earning the trust of management in his tenure. In recent years, however, there have been growing concerns amongst the fanbase as the pitching staff's ranking has dropped from second, to fourth, to seventh, to ninth in the American League as the years have gone by. This in spite of additions such as Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, and John Lackey to the staff.

Farrell won out over a group of other candidates including Boston bench coach DeMarlo Hale.
