→ Getting John Farrell from the Blue Jays

I think I prefer the Red Sox hiring Tampa Bay Rays bench coach Dave Martinez for their next manager. Yes, Farrell might be more of a known commodity, but I think having someone who has seen first hand how Joe Maddon gets guys ready to play could end up being just what this young Red Sox team needs. Besides, if Martinez does not work out, the Red Sox can go after Farrell when he is no longer under contract with the Blue Jays1.
