JOHN FARRELL RUMORS & GOSSIP

John Farrell: Brock Holt Returning In 2014 ‘Not Out Of The Question’ (Video)

Brock Holt has pretty much done it all this season. At the moment, though, he’s not doing much of anything. The Boston Red Sox utilityman was diagnosed with a concussion last Friday that stemmed from his collision with Dustin Pedroia on Aug. 25. He hasn’t played since Sept. 5. While the Sox don’t have much left to play for in 2014, Red Sox manager John Farrell noted before...

When Does the Manager Deserve Credit?

John Farrell – Okay for Now

For the second time in three seasons, the Red Sox seem headed for a last-place finish. However, the circumstances are hardly the same.

Farrell Likes Between-Innings Countdown Clock

Red Sox manager John Farrell believes there are a lot of things Major League Baseball can do to speed up the game. One of his ideas is a between-innings "countdown" clock. Such a clock could be set at—say 2 minutes and 10 seconds—insuring that each half-inning starts promptly. The start of each inning would no longer be subject to the vagaries of a given pitcher'...
