08:11 AM ET 10.19 | In the case of the Red Sox and John Farrell, the speculation may soon all be over. Why? Because logically it is the only sensible outcome for all parties involved. ... [If] the Jays aren't convinced Farrell is the long-term answer in the dugout, then this is a golden opportunity not just to replace him, but to get something of value for him, too. That gives the Jays incentive to act. The teams already have begun discussing compensation, according to an industry source, that would allow Farrell out of the final year of his contract. The Jays need the compensation question resolved as quickly as the Red Sox, because if Farrell leaves, they'll immediately be in the market for a new manager as well.

What will be the odds that the Jays hire one of the four the SOx just interviewed or Bogar?

I believe the Jays want Ausmus. IMO that's who Boston should hire..............screw Farrell.

I'm not buying it, but this is the Boston Herald after all.

The blue jays had a worse record than the soxWhat has he accomplished that you would actually give up compensation for him?

Wrong. The Sox finished 4 games behind the Jays.

They were probably interviewed in the eventuality that a deal for Farrell falls through for some unknown **** reason.

If I am the Jays I would take a top prospect from the Sox for Farrell and turn around and hire Brad Ausmus as my manager.

Word around here is Sandy Alomar is target #1. Either way, I don't know why the Sox want Farrell back - he was a pitching coach and as manager he's managed Ricky Romero into a grave and failed to turn two consecutive bullpens into productive forces. Him leaving wouldn't bother me in the least.

yeah, I agree, why wouldn't crave Farrell. Never mind fighting over him. I believe when it's all said and done, he will join Tito in Cleveland as their pitching coach.

This is the dumbest scheiss ever.

Would somebody... anybody.... please explain why they are all over this guys c___? It makes no sense other than there is a history.

Luckily for the rest of the AL East, Boston has become adept at shooting themselves in the foot! Hopefully, this ends soon so we can focus in on other trivial rumours!

Heh H20pp, 4-0. Quite nice. Am definately rooting for the Tigers all the way now.

Otherwise, no compensation, no Farrell. I can't see why the Sox absolutely must have this guy. Hopefully this is just made-up doo-doo from the Heraldrag.

*Hey*

He is not worth anything more than a AA prospect or a AAA low level prospect. He hasn't won anything notable in Toronto why waste potential talent on him. Now if he had a wild card or at least a winnig record! He is 154-170 in Toronto.... Pena is way better and you don't have to give up anything!!

October 19, 2012  11:45 AM ET

Can't see the appeal of Farrell. His only tie to the Sox was through Tito. Ausmus or Pena are the best picks imo. My fear is they will give up something they will end up needing to get a guy who hasn't shown much where he is at the moment and lose out on a potentially good fit for the club.

thanks , my badI have no problem if they want to hire him...but to pay 'extra' for him?why?there are many other guys out there that have equal or better track records or 'potential'.

I agree with you. David Ortiz seems to think that the trouble-makers are still in the clubhouse, so maybe they think that if Farrell could restore order in Toronto, he could do the same in Boston. They may not be viewing him as a long-term solution but rather as a short-term enforcer.

Or the Boston Herald may be piping pop smoke into the newsroom again.
