Apparently the Blue Jays think the Red Sox have a pretty amazing coaching staff.
CSNNE.com’s Sean McAdam reports that the Blue Jays have already interviewed Red Sox third base coach Tim Bogar and bench coach DeMarlo Hale as potential replacements for manager Cito Gaston and also have Boston pitching coach John Farrell on their list of candidates.
Here’s how Bogar described his interview, which apparently lasted around 90 minutes:
I tried to give them a sense of how I handle people and a ball club. It was kind of a “get-to-know-me” thing, who you are and what you’re about. John and DeMarlo have been a big help to me in my career. They’re good baseball men, and if it’s not me, it better be one of those two. You want the best for people you’re close with.
Toronto’s candidates list is seemingly pretty lengthy at this point, so it’ll be interesting to see how many Boston coaches make the next cut.
