Is it too early for the Red Sox to give manager John Farrell a raise? Whatever the Sox are paying Farrell, they should double it considering the performances he’s been able to coax out of once-wayward starters Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz this season.
Maybe Bill Belichick should see what Fix ’em Farrell knows about cornerbacks. Everyone knew that the redemptive duo of Lester and Buchholz would be the compass for the Red Sox season. Seven games into the season the Sox and their reinvigorated aces are pointing due north.
