John Farrell to be Sox manager

The next manager of the Red Sox will come from a division rival, a team source saying late Saturday night there was a deal to bring John Farrell back to Boston.

Farrell will become the 46th manager in team history after spending two seasons as manager of the Toronto Blue Jays. Compensation has yet to be announced, although a team source said that Mike Aviles will be going to Toronto with a player coming back to the Sox.
