Comcast's Jessica Moran Resigns Amid Farrell Rumors

Comcast SportsNet's Jessica Moran—one of the best sports reporters in Boston—has resigned amid rumors of an alleged relationship with Red Sox manager John Farrell. Farrell has been separated from his wife for two years. Moran was a regular on Comcast's coverage of the Red Sox—and had recently been subbing as host of that network's popular Baseball Show from Fort Myers. Moran texted the following to The Boston Globe: "I have stepped away from Comcast SportsNet as I thought it was in my best personal and professional interest to do so. They have been extremely supportive during my tenure at the network — and with this decision — and I am very appreciative of that." Of course, Moran's decision reminds many of Jenny Dell's departure from NESN after her relationship with Red Sox third-baseman Will Middlebrooks came to light. It's unclear what impact this situation will have on the Red Sox or Comcast. Stay tuned!
