Red Sox, Blue Jays discussing John Farrell compensation: Report

The Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays have moved past "preliminary" stages of discussing compensation for manager John Farrell, The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo reported on Twitter Thursday night.

Farrell is considered the Red Sox's top target to replace Bobby Valentine as manager. Farrell spent five years as the Red Sox's pitching coach before moving on to Toronto, where he has compiled a 154-170 record in two seasons at the helm.

The Red Sox have already met with Yankees bench coach Tony Pena, Dodgers third-base coach Tim Wallach and Padres special assistant Brad Ausmus. Orioles third base coach DeMarlo Hale is expected to interview this week.

Valentine was fired Oct. 4, one day after Boston ended the season with a 69-93 record. The 93 losses were the most for the team since 1965.
