Former Boston Red Sox John Farrell is making the rounds on MLB Network on Wednesday. What does this mean for his future?
Two months ago this week, then Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell was fired.
A lot has transpired since then, including the Red Sox hiring Alex Cora to be their new manager. But for the first time since his firing, Farrell will be appearing on MLB Network on Monday.
According to Chad Finn on Twitter, Farrell appeared on Hot Stove at 9 AM, he will be on High Heat with Christopher Russo at 1 PM, and then he will finish his day with an appearance on MLB Tonight at 6 PM.
On Hot Stove this morning, Farrell had some comments on his exit in Boston.
Farrell appears to be at peace with the decision. Many people around the organization believed he was losing the team, and it was time for a fresh face.
Despite leading the Red Sox to a World Championship, and three division titles in five seasons, the lack of postseason success in his later years was his demise.
Farrell also commented on a few other things, including the hiring of Aaron Boone as the new manager of the New York Yankees.
The hiring of Boone has been much discussed, and it is interesting for another manager to comment on Boone’s qualification. At the end of the day, the Yankees had no problem with his lack of qualifications.
Seeing as how Farrell will appear on a couple more shows today, there could be more opportunities for him to comment on his departure from the Red Sox.
However, with Farrell appearing on MLB Network, there might be an opportunity for him to appear as an analyst down the road. We know Farrell had a tough time with the media in Boston, so it would be interesting to see how he fares on television.
