Farrell's Replacement Arrives
Today the Red Sox hired their replacement for John Farrell, former A's pitching coach Curt Young (right). This year, Young led the A's to an AL-low 3.58 ERA. Young has been the A's pitching coach for the past 7 years; while Farrell had been on the Sox for the past 4 years. Young denied the multi-year contract that the A's gave him, and he came to the Red Sox because the Red Sox (89-73) are a little bit better than the A's (81-81), even though the A's have better pitching. People who have worked with Young say he is an excellent pitching coach which is definitely a plus. I sure hope he works out for the Sox!
