Video: Red Sox Manager John Farrell Gets Mad In Radio Interview
Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell had an interesting back-and-forth with WEEI Radio host Rich Keefe.
Barstool Sports’ Jared Carrabis reported last week certain coaches were unhappy with his Craig Kimbrel’s and instructed Farrell to use his closer differently. According to Carrabis, they perceived Kimbrel’s usage as Farrell trying to save his job. After his four-out save on June 6, the fifth time this season he had gone more than inning of work, Kimbrel has not been asked to get more than three outs in seven subsequent appearances.
When asked by Keefe if there was any truth to this report, Farrell responded, “I have no idea what you’re talking about.”
Keefe pressed Farrell twice more, and after failing to get any response suggested reading an excerpt from the report to him.
“We can pull it up if you want,” Keefe said. “You want me to read the article to you? Is that what you’re looking for?”
“I’m not looking for anything,” Farrell responded.
Keefe also pushed Farrell on a number of other issues and really grilled the Red Sox manager. Maybe in an unfair way, but either way the interview is worth a watch for Red Sox fans.
