He's tanned, rested and ready. Plus, his "media" career isn't exactly setting the world on fire. So, it's completely natural to presume that the Cincinnati Reds—who just fired manager Bryan Price—might look to ex-Sox manager John Farrell to take over the helm in The Queen City. After all, despite the heat he took in Boston, Farrell did: A.) win a World Series Championship in 2013, and B.) win the AL East back-to-back in 2016-17—something never done before in franchise history. At least Farrell would be easy to sell to the fans and media. Plus, with Reds pitching ranked next to last in major league baseball (5.42 team ERA), Farrell's perceived expertise in that part of the game would also be seen as a plus. It makes too much sense not to happen. Stay tuned.
