Reports: Jays offer Farrell manager job

Multiple reports suggest that the Blue Jays have offered Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell the job of Toronto manager, with the two sides trying to work out contract details to see if a fit is possible. Farrell has been the Boston pitching coach since 2007. Prior to that, he was the head of Player Development from 2001-06 for the Cleveland Indians.

 

While Farrell had a contract clause preventing him from interviewing for managerial vacancies in prior offseasons, that restriction was no longer in place.

 

One source familiar with the situation suggested that it would be a surprise at this point if Farrell didn't end up in the Toronto dugout. That being the case, assuming he does end up going to the Blue Jays, the Sox would be expected to look at both internal and external candidates to replace him as pitching coach.

Police say they won't charge Seau

Prosecutors in San Diego tell the Associated Press that they won't charge former Patriots linebacker Junior Seau after his live-in girlfriend alleged she was assaulted. The San Diego County district attorney's office said Friday that it reached its decision after reviewing an investigation by police.

Seau, 41, was arrested early Monday on suspicion of domestic violence. Police said his 25-year-old girlfriend reported that she was assaulted during an argument. Seau quickly posted bail — however, shortly after that, his SUV plunged down a seaside cliff. Seau escaped serious injury.

The linebacker played for the Patriots from 2006 through 2009.

Gammons: Sox 'worried' about losing Farrell

MLB Network and NESN analyst Peter Gammons, in his weekly appearance on The Big Show, said that Blue Jays officials are expected to inform the Red Sox on Friday night about whether they want to hire Boston bench coach DeMarlo Hale or pitching coach John Farrell to be their manager. Both Hale and Farrell are finalists, and a recent report suggested that another candidate -- Sandy Alomar Jr. of the Indians -- had been notified that he's no longer being considered.

 

Gammons said that the Sox are "very worried" about the possibility that Farrell will depart, given the difficulty of replacing him as pitching coach. He said that there is no obvious replacement for Farrell should he leave.

 

"I think that decision is supposed to be made and they’re supposed to let the Red Sox know by tonight whether it’s going to be DeMarlo or John," said Gammons. "I think the Red Sox know that...
