November 06, 2013 - 6:59 am
Red Sox manager John Farrell will be in studio with Salk & Holley on Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. and will take calls from WEEI listeners. Farrell on Wednesday was named a finalist for American League Manager of the Year as voted on by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Farrell took a Red Sox team that finished last in the AL East in 2012 and led it to 97 wins and a World Series championship in his first season as manager in Boston. Former Sox manager Terry Francona (Indians) and Bob Melvin (Athletics) also were named as finalists for the award, for which voting took place at the end of the regular season. The winner will be announced next week.
