    now it's a  different story



    Farrell: I'm focused on Blue Jays
    By: Jerry Spar

    Amid speculation that the Red Sox might have interest in tallking to Blue Jays manager John Farrell about their managerial vacancy, the former Sox pitching coach tried to distance himself from those rumors.

    "I have no idea and no comment on what's happening in Boston," Farrell wrote to sportsnet.ca's Shi Davidi. "I am focused right now on preparing for what is best for the Blue Jays in 2012."

    Farrell left Boston following the 2010 season and guided the Jays to an 81-81 record this year. As WEEI.com's Rob Bradford wrote Monday, Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopolous is on record as saying the team would not stop employees from talking to other teams about openings.

    "Selfishly, I don’t want any of our guys to leave, but at the same time I hope all of our employees have opportunities to better themselves, whether it’s responsibilities, financial, whatever it might be," Anthopolous told sportsnet.ca.

    However, the cost of obtaining Farrell -- in the form of a top prospect or current major leaguer -- could be more than the Sox are willing to pay.

    Lowrie or Aviles (since they are somewhat redundant) and Michael Bowden (since no one in this organization seems confident in his value and ability) seems fair to me.  A major leaguer and a pitcher who could probably pitch the 6th and 7th innings for you fairly effectively and who might pan out as a starter with a new pitching coach and the right opportunity.

    I would certainly go to him first.

    My best wishes for Farrell's son Luke.Below is a paragraph from the article and a link to read it all.An interesting take from Toronto on Ferrell coming back to the Sox:

    The Red Sox haven't yet made the call to Jays' GM Alex Anthopoulos to ask permission to talk to John Farrell, according to the first-year manager himself, reached by The Star this morning in Boston.

    Don't panic, fans. Farrell is not there to be interviewed by the Red Sox. In fact, since the end of the season, John and his wife Sue have remained at the side of their son Luke, 21, as he undergoes treatment for removal of a recurring tumour on the back of his skull.
