John Farrell Is 'Focused Right Now' On 2012 Season For Blue Jays

John Farrell's is one of the rumored replacements for Terry Francona as the next manager of the Boston Red Sox, the same team he served as pitching coach for from 2006 through 2010 before leaving to become the manager of the Toronto Blue Jays at the start of this past season.

While Farrell did not confirm or deny if the interest is mutual, he did make it clear that at this moment he is preparing for the 2012 season with the Blue Jays and intends to do what's best for the team.

"I have no idea and no comment on what's happening in Boston," Farrell wrote to sportsnet.ca. "I am focused right now on preparing for what is best for the Blue Jays in 2012." (via Sportsnet)

Per team policy, nothing is stopping Farrell from being in contact with the Red Sox about their managerial vacancy, so his comments don't necessarily mean that he is out of the running for the position.
