John Farrell Shoots Down Cespedes 'Hate' Talk

Red Sox manager John Farrell appeared on MLB Network Radio today and contradicted reports that his team's coaches "hate" Yoenis Cespedes. Farrell said he was "...totally surprised and caught off guard" by the reports and went on to state that they were "completely unfounded". Of course, Farrell may be acting on orders from management to tamp down the 'hate talk' to minimize the impact on the outfielder's trade value. We still feel the odds are very good that Cespedes gets moved in a one-on-one deal for pitching or in a "blockbuster package" for someone like the rumored Bryce Harper.
