Report: Sox ask Jays to talk to Farrell

According to The Associated Press, which cited a baseball source familiar with the negotiations, the Red Sox have asked the Blue Jays for permission to talk directly with Toronto manager John Farrell about the opening for the same position in Boston. 

The Sox and Jays have been talking throughout this week about potential compensation that Boston would have to send to Toronto if the Jays were to release Farrell from the final year of the three-year contract he signed to manage the Blue Jays after the 2010 season. 

The Sox have interviewed four candidates -- Tim Wallach, Tony Pena, Brad Ausmus and DeMarlo Hale -- as they look for a replacement for Bobby Valentine, who was fired after one season in which the team went 69-93. However, even though he hasn't interviewed, Farrell has been seen as the team's top candidate given his familiarity with the Red Sox...

Sox hope to find manager in 'coming days'

According to a baseball source, the Red Sox 'hope to have a resolution on the manager in the coming days.'

There could be a motivation on the team's behalf to lock up its manager prior to the start of the World Series, which will see Game 1 played Wednesday. Major League Baseball discourages teams from making moves during the best-of-seven-game event. The soonest the World Series could conclude would be Oct. 27, with a seven-game series potentially stretching the season until Nov. 1.

The Associated Press reported Friday night that the Red Sox have asked permission from the Blue Jays to interview John Farrell. The teams have already discussed potential compensation in the event the Sox try and pry Farrell away from his post as Jays manager to serve in the same capacity with Boston. The 50-year-old has one year remaining on his contract...

Mashup: Yanks 'spooked' by NY fans' booing

The Yankees were swept out of the postseason Thursday night in Detroit, but the beginning of the end came days earlier in the Bronx. An unidentified Yankees player told the New York Daily News that the team was stunned by the way New York fans turned on the offensively inept team last weekend, and the players were unable to regain their composure.

"I really think the booing spooked a lot of guys," the player said. "A lot of guys hadn't been booed before, and they couldn't believe how nasty it got in the stands.

Outfielder Nick Swisher referenced the behavior after Game 2, but now we've learned that other players shared his view.

"A lot of guys were talking about it in the clubhouse," the player said. "I was surprised by how much it bothered them. I really don't think they ever recovered."

Meanwhile, Alex Rodriguez, who went 0-for-2 in Game 4 to finish his postseason at 3-for-25 (.120) with...

KG, Pierce lead C's rout over Nets

With less than two weeks remaining before the start of the regular season, the Celtics are beginning to look like the team they think they'll be on opening night in Miami. With Kevin Garnett playing his most minutes this preseason and Paul Pierce finding the range yet again, the Celtics rolled to a 115-85 win over the Nets in Brooklyn. 

Garnett scored 14 points on 7-for-9 shooting in 22 minutes, while Pierce dropped in 18 on just 9 shots. Rajon Rondo added 14 points and 9 assists and Courtney Lee also had 18 points on 8-for-12 shooting. Jason Terry, meanwhile, made all 5 of his 3-pointers and finished with 15 points as the C's shot 57 percent from the floor. 

As good as they were offensively, the Celtics were at their best on the defensive end, holding the Nets to just 15 points in the first quarter on 3-for-16 shooting. That was exactly the kind of effort they were looking for after dropping their first two exhibition games stateside...

Tigers crush CC, Yanks to sweep way to WS

The Tigers pounded Yankees ace CC Sabathia for six runs (five earned) on 11 hits in just 3 2/3 innings, blowing open Game 4 of the ALCS en route to a 8-1 win that propelled Detroit to a four-game sweep and a berth in the World Series. The Tigers will take part in the Fall Classic for the first time since 2006; Detroit is looking for its first title since 1984. 

Miguel Cabrera and Jhonny Peralta both launched two-run homers off Sabathia in a four-run fourth inning to knock New York's ace out of the game. It was the first time in 16 postseason outings -- dating to Game 1 of the 2007 ALCS, when Sabathia was pitching for the Indians against the Red Sox -- that the left-hander yielded as many as six runs in a postseason outing. 

The Tigers pounded out 16 hits, with seven lineup members collecting multiple hits. The Yankees, meanwhile, continued their postseason-long offensive drought, managing just two hits and one run against Detroit pitching...
