Re: Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell offered Blue Jays' Manager's Job
Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell indicated in a text message a few moments ago that "Nothing is official" yet as far as his new job managing the Toronto Blue Jays.
Contractual issues are likely being worked out. It's not known whether the Red Sox have made any last minute attempt to keep Farrell, or whether there are any restrictions on who Farrell can take with him to Toronto for coaches, but all signs still point to Farrell managing the Jays.
