Boston, MA (Sports Network) - The Boston Red Sox announced on Sunday that
John Farrell has been named to their vacant managerial post.
Farrell takes over for Bobby Valentine, who was fired after one season in
which he led the Sox to a last-place finish and 69-93 record -- worst for the
franchise in almost 50 years.
The 50-year-old Farrell led the Blue Jays to a 73-89 mark in 2012, good enough
for fourth place in the AL East.
