Sox Keep Coach!

After much talk about John Farrell, the Red Sox' pitching coach leaving Boston to be the manager of the Cleveland Indians. Not so fast, Farrell has still got a contract through 2010 with the Sox. Farrell led the Sox pitching to a 66-50 record and a 4.59 ERA, while leading the bullpen to a 3.84 ERA, 3rd in the AL. The Indians, merely a shadow of their former self, skidded to a 65-97 fired manager Eric Wedge, and are obviously looking for candidates to replace him. Say goodbye to Farrell on that list though, as he is going to stay right in the Sox' dugout for at least one more year. Too bad the Sox got knocked out in a sweep, but oh well, there's always next year.


  1. The Sox have done well by sticking with their good perforemers even when they slip a little (look at how Papi was doing early in the season).I think Francona has uncannily good judgment in that area.
