Take this for what it is worth as it is coming out of Boston, but as a follow-up the TD’s news from last night, Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell has reportedly turned down the chance to interview with the Cleveland Indians.
This is turning into quite a he said-she said between the Indians (and Paul Hoynes) and Red Sox (and ESPN, Boston Globe, etc).
Since serving as the director of player development – a concept that has since been apparently ignored by the Indians - Farrell would be welcomed back with open arms. However, until we get a confirmation, everything is speculation.
Assumed to be at the top of the wishlist, this would not be the best of news. I have a feeling this is all going to go down a similar path as it did with the Browns and all of the Bill Cowher talks from last winter. If so, I can’t wait to see who the MLB version of Josh McDaniels will be!
