Haven't heard anything on the toronto end of things. Apparently he has an 'inside source'. Just sounds like he's trying to stir the pot to be honest.

As far as I know, AA for now expects Farrel to be the manager next season. If Boston wants him, they'll have to pay.

Rotoworld:

Angels signed C Chris Iannetta to a three-year, $15.5 million contract extension.
The two sides had a $5 million mutual option for 2013 that had been expected to get picked up, but now Iannetta will get a couple more years tacked on.

I, perhaps am wrong, but I know just about this situation as much as you do, which is nothing.

Farrell is in a unique position: he doesn't deserve to be fired, but he doesn't deserve a contract extension either.

You dont just let a manager walk to your division rival

You get something back for him

He really shouldn't. I mean it's not his fault specifically or anything, but he's just not a very good manager imo.

I doubt he moves to the AL, but if he does:

BlueJays/RedSox 2-3 yrs 7-8m.

Thats what I am thinking too. He has said he would like to stay on the west coast and I dont see him taking a job as a 4th outfielder with the Dodgers. SF or Oakland are still an hour flight from Vegas, I could see SD maybe going after him too if OMalley decides to spend some money.

Added.

They really have to. Enough with the extreme pitchers parks.

Reds extended Dusty Baker for 2 years.

Jason Giambi a serious Rockies manager candidate.

Has Giambi even officially retired yet? I knew he ended the year on the DL with some kinda sickness or something.

I don't see Oakland in on him. They look set with Cespedes in LF, Crisp in CF and Reddick in RF.

Bob Brenly leaving the Cub TV booth.

Rumor has it he may end up in the Diamondbacks booth to replace the fired Mark Grace.
