Told I may be preamture on John Farrell , that Alex Anthropolous last night still considering Demarlo Hale. Decision very soon
Peter Gammons says the Blue Jays are set to name Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell as their manager for 2011, but Toronto General Manager Alex Anthopoulos says "we haven't made any decision".
On Thursday, Gammo tweeted: "Three GMs today insisted John Farrell will get the Toronto job".
CSNE's Sean McAdam says the list of possible managers is down to three: Farrell, Red Sox bench coach DeMarlo Hale, and Cleveland first base coach Sandy Alomar Jr. Jays third base coach Brian Butterfield may also be a candidate.
Richard Griffin of the Star notes that Farrell, who was Cleveland's director of player development from 2001-06, worked with current Jays assistant GM Tony LaCava in 2002.
