Sox May Be Very Close To Landing John Farrell

Farrell Deal Imminent?
According to multiple reports, the Red Sox and Blue Jays are closer than ever to resolving the compensation issue that would bring John Farrell to Boston as their new manager. Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports that Toronto sources indicate that Farrell is "gone" and that the Jays are looking for a "decent player" that will impact their team at the major league level right away. It's unclear who that could be on the current Boston roster, but it does sound like the Red Sox have made their choice and that choice is Farrell.
