Red Sox Managerial Search: John Farrell, Brad Ausmus

The Boston Red Sox officially cut ties with manager Bobby Valentine yesterday, following a disappointing 2012 campaign. Boston’s attention now turns to who their next skipper will be, and one popular name has been current Toronto Blue Jays manager John Farrell. While the Blue Jays decided to not part ways with Farrell last offseason, they aren’t expected to stand in the Red Sox way this time around, reports Bob Nightengale of USA Today:

While Farrell is the name most-tied to the Red Sox, Matthew Pouliot of Hardball Talk discussed the possibility of former Houston Astros catcher Brad Ausmus becoming Boston’s next manager.

Pouliot admitted that it was purely speculation, but did bring up the fact that Ausmus bowed out of contention for the Astros’ managerial opening last month. Pouliot’s theory is that Ausmus’ removal from the running could have been the result of the Red Sox letting the native New Englander know that they expected to have an opening.
