    John Farrell

    There’s simply no way the Red Sox could have looked at John Farrell’s work in Toronto and came away with the idea that he was a great manager. The Blue Jays were a horrible baserunning team, they had Omar Vizquel questioning their clubhouse leadership and their win total decreased in both of his years at…

    We heard last night that the Red Sox were “making progress” in negotiations to acquire John Farrell from the Blue Jays to be their new manager.

    John Farrell

    Matthew outlined a pretty good case against the Red Sox hiring former pitching coach and current Blue Jays manager John Farrell to be their next skipper.  But if they don’t heed Matthew’s advice, it seems like they’re going to have access to him: The #Bluejays are not expected to stand in the way of the…

  9. Red Sox can do better than John Farrell for next manager

    Oct 4, 2012, 1:22 PM EST

    John Farrell; Marvin Hudson

    With Bobby Valentine officially gone after months of being left dangling on the hook, the focus in Boston has immediately shifted to Blue Jays manager John Farrell. And I’m left to wonder why. Now, Farrell had a sterling reputation in five years as Boston’s pitching coach. But managing a team is a different animal. And…

  10. John Farrell: Adam Lind was out of shape

    Adam Lind

    Uh-oh, someone was not in the Best Shape of His Life when he was demoted to Las Vegas. That someone was the Blue Jays Adam Lind Farrell implies Lind wasn’t in shape when sent down, affected range and bat speed, but also said he did his core strengthening religiously. — Mike Wilner (@Wilnerness590) June 11,…

    John Farrell

    We learned the other day that the Red Sox tried to talk the Blue Jays into letting them interview John Farrell for their open manager’s job.  The Blue Jays, however, have a policy of not giving permission for their people to interview for lateral moves, so that didn’t go anywhere. But the Jays weren’t totally closed…

    Nov 22, 2011, 1:50 PM EST

    John Farrell

    Back in the early days of Boston’s never-ending managerial search the Blue Jays changed their team policy to block the Red Sox from potentially interviewing John Farrell.

    John Farrell

    Sticking with the Blue Jays medical beat, manager John Farrell — who left Thursday night’s game with what turned out to be pneumonia — is still off the job due to his illness. And will be for a while yet. Richard Griffin of the Toronto Star tweeted a bit ago that Farrell showed up at…

  16. John Farrell to miss tonight’s game after all

    Aug 26, 2011, 5:00 PM EST

    John Farrell

    This morning’s report about Blue Jays manager John Farrell having pneumonia also had him rejoining the team today. Which seemed a bit nuts given that, you know, pneumonia is rather serious. Apparently cooler heads have prevailed, however, as Farrell is now reported to be missing tonight’s game against the Rays. Presumably bench coach Don Wakamatsu will fill in…

    Blue Jays manager John Farrell left last night’s game against the Royals with chest pains and discomfort. The good news is that he didn’t have a heart attack or anything.

    John Farrell, J.P. Arencibia, Jon Rauch, Alfonso Marquez

    Remember that ugly bit of ugliness involving  Jon Rauch over the weekend? In which his manager, John Farrell, had to come out and hold him back from killing home plate umpire  Alfonso Marquez, ripping Rauch’s jersey off in the process?  Yeah, well, Farrell got the worst of it: When asked Monday how he didn’t pull…

    John Farrell isn’t banning anyone from using Twitter for now, but the Blue Jays’ new manager said yesterday that he’ll “advise” players to avoid social networking because “they set themselves up for another distraction.” Farrell explained to John Lott of the National Post that the Blue Jays informed all players about the “pitfalls” of social…

  20. Secret’s out: Blue Jays sign John Farrell to three-year contract

    Oct 26, 2010, 10:48 AM EST

    john-farrell-blue-jays-presser

    In announcing John Farrell as their new manager yesterday the Blue Jays refused to disclose the length of his contract, which as I noted at the time is both odd and pointless because eventually someone with the team will tell someone with the media and then the attempt at secrecy will seem even weirder. Turns…

    This afternoon the Blue Jays officially introduced former Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell as their new manager, but neither Farrell nor general manager Alex Anthopoulos were willing to disclose the length of his contract.
