Last quote by John Farrell

Certainly after the workload of the last week, that was pretty much called for. The way he felt coming out of the Yankee game, body-wise, he felt a little more taxed than previous starts, so I thought it was timely.feedback

John Farrell quotes

Jul 14 2017

He's swinging the bat like he did the second half of last year. To be quite frank, we need that type of production, and he's certainly very capable.feedback

Jul 14 2017

Sometimes you don't want to disrupt a good thing. Clearly, [Lin] and Deven and what they've done at third base has given us a lot of momentum.feedback

Jul 10 2017

I think certainly there can be a lot of expectations attached to an acquisition, particularly a big-contract acquisition. Human nature has it you come into a new environment, you come to impress and the same reason you acquire those individuals, they might try to do a little bit more at times and that doesn't necessarily work for them. Chris has blended in very well in our clubhouse and it's just a matter of going out and doing the things he does so well as a pitcher and that starts with throwing strikes.feedback

Jul 06 2017

We hit some balls hard, we hit some balls right at people. But make no mistake, Cashner, that was one of the better games he's thrown this year. He's in the mid-90s (mph) with heavy sink.feedback

Jul 03 2017

He gets on these hot streaks where seemingly there's a lot of damage to the swing. The one thing that has always stood out about Mookie's approach to the game is not only a genuine humility, but an aptitude that is second to none. He is not afraid to expose himself in terms of not knowing everything and will ask great questions. But the aptitude to apply it quickly, that's what sets him apart.feedback

Jun 29 2017

All I can go by is what my eyes tell me, and I think [Bogaerts] has been very strong. For me, Bogey has done a heck of a job. He's durable. You can count on him. He's a reliable shortstop and an offensive one at the same time. I don't know the factors that go into defensive metrics or all the UZR ratings. Sometimes those are alignment-dependent.feedback

Jun 28 2017

We know it's not to that [2016] level yet, but we're not going to give up on him by any means and say this isn't going to happen. We see stretches where the impact of the baseball is to all fields. That's always been the goal to get him to that. He's not giving up on himself, and we're not giving up on him.feedback

Jun 27 2017

Time was called. Time was clearly called before the balk was called. So that was the dispute.feedback

Jun 23 2017

I think he has a keen awareness that he could potentially keep others from flourishing with the potential thought and the question always being there -- 'Well, he is around. Is he ever coming back? I think it speaks to David's awareness of himself, the situation, how a team functions. I wouldn't be surprised if that is at the root of his decision to keep the space that he's done.feedback

Jun 21 2017

This one stings because that group has been so good, so consistent for the better part of the whole season.feedback

Jun 21 2017

We uncharacteristically lost the strike zone. For a group that has been so good at not issuing too many walks over the course of the year, we had an inning that got away from us. Matt was up in the zone. He couldn't get the ball down.feedback

Jun 21 2017

When he went down to swing in the cage, there's still some restriction. Hopefully he'll be back in the lineup Friday.feedback

Jun 21 2017

When you consider the careers that are on that fa�ade, the numbers that are up there and the fact that his being done so soon after retiring, I think speaks volumes. What he's meant to the city, what he's meant to the organization. To see him at the ballpark, see the smile, to hear the booming voice, it will be a good day for us.feedback

Jun 21 2017

It's certainly not a trend. That isn't something we have dealt with very often, if at all, particularly three consecutive walks to load the bases. That's not who this pitching staff has shown to be.feedback

Jun 21 2017

I think the postseason last year everybody thought this is the way a bullpen should be used. In a short series, yes. In 162 games, that's going to be an awfully big challenge.feedback

Jun 21 2017

Given the workload that [Kimbrel] went through, what he was feeling coming out of those three particular [multi-inning] appearances, that wasn't something that we looked to entertain.feedback

Jun 18 2017

Honestly there aren't any alternatives. Rick is a key member of this team and we've got to continue to work to get it right.feedback

Jun 18 2017

Any time he made a mistake up in the strike zone, those are the pitches that came back to haunt him. The night-and-day difference is elevation in the strike zone.feedback

Jun 09 2017

Here's the thing: David Price is one hell of a teammate. He's a very strong competitor. The support he gives his teammates in the clubhouse and that dugout is outstanding, and it's returned to him. I think he genuinely appreciates competing with the Red Sox, the city of Boston, and going out and working with his teammates to win a championship.feedback

Jun 09 2017

There was an emotional conversation that took place last night. That will be talked about with him.feedback

Jun 07 2017

But when you start talking concepts, let's face it, communication with players is priority No. 1. So to be clear, the interpreter is needed.feedback

Jun 06 2017

I tell you the one thing that we don't preach. I hear about creating this kind of loft – I think what we try to do is take what is the natural swing of a given hitter and say, How does he put his best swing on the baseball?' Our approach to developing hitters has always been understanding the strike zone, having an all-field approach, being a more complete hitter versus one that's going to look to put the ball in the air.feedback

Jun 06 2017

The fact that the standings are what they are now, with a major change to the names on each roster, this should be a fun series – teams that are now being impacted greatly by young players. We've gone through that a couple of years ago as we've transitioned, and it's happened quick here in New York.feedback

Jun 06 2017

They're playing well. It's a good team. They've got a very good blend of young players and veteran guys. What Aaron Judge is doing is impressive to say the least, both defensively and offensively.feedback

Jun 03 2017

We project that his first day eligible, he'd be ready to go.feedback

Jun 02 2017

To be honest, he's a little snake-bit.feedback

May 29 2017

I think any time you're dealing with a position player's wrist, a hitter's wrist, that's always cause for concern.feedback

May 29 2017

We're hopeful that hitters are soon in his schedule.feedback

May 26 2017

I don't think there's any one thing you can point to. He's generated a lot of talk because of the run that he's on and doing a very good job. That's clear. But it's been a combination of a lot of things that's culminated in increased confidence, pitching very relaxed with very good stuff.feedback

May 26 2017

It's just a matter of his abilities coming together. This has always been an extremely talented young guy.feedback

May 25 2017

He's been swinging the bat well. There's some momentum with Travis, getting him up here. The fact is, we're probably looking at four left-handed starters over these next four series. Felt like this was an opportunity to add another right-handed bat.feedback

May 25 2017

Even if he goes out and gives us the 90 pitches in the first few outings -- and obviously there's going to be a little tighter rein on him with the workload initially until we continue to build him out -- but like I said, adding David Price to your rotation is always going to be a positive.feedback

May 25 2017

The build-up of pitch count is really where you're going to center your decision-making on. Granted, we know what's taken place in the two rehab starts, but the fact that our goal setting out was to get him to 90 pitches, he was able to do that last night.feedback

May 25 2017

We'll sit and talk with him [Thursday]. We'll check with him in the morning, make sure there's no physical ailments -- which we don't expect any -- and we'll sit with him and map out the next step.feedback

May 25 2017

He came out of tonight's game feeling fine physically. He got to maybe the goal number of pitches thrown. A couple of extended innings early once again. But we had a scout there that liked what he saw in terms of physical stuff. The linescore isn't going to be what we'll see going forward, but from just answering the physical side of it, I think he's answered that tonight.feedback

May 24 2017

I think we're in the midst of a season that will be something that will be remembered by a lot of people for a long period of time. I know we have a long way to go in this season, but the start that he's off to here is starting to get in very, very select company.feedback

May 12 2017

I've considered an exorcism at third base. See if we can clean things up in some form or fashion.feedback

May 07 2017

Mitch has done a great job. This is his first real opportunity of playing every day, and he's done just that, played every day. But I think it's important we're able to pick spots to keep him as fresh as possible. That's been our goal since we reported to spring training (to have Ramirez play some first base), and yet we're still trying to get there.feedback

May 07 2017

I haven't mapped it out in all three (games), but he'll be at first base. And I can see us in a situation where we can be mixing and matching out there. If Hanley starts a game where Mitch (Moreland) picks him up defensively later on, that's certainly a possibility. All those combinations are available to us.feedback

May 06 2017

From the mindset that he's generating, to be in full uniform, he's taking it as a game day. And the adrenaline builds with that. His workdays have been very good.feedback

May 05 2017

I think any time a mandate comes from the leader of our industry, it sends a strong and clear message to whatever the issue might at hand and I think it was very effective. He commented that it was the first time he had been involved at this level or this type of interaction, so I think it helped.feedback

May 03 2017

The two teams are highly competitive. This hasn't been a one-incident situation. We are looking forward to playing a good hard brand of baseball and we know that there have been some pitches that got away and that's what precipitated the call today.feedback

May 03 2017

Typically you don't see it that early, and they're going to determine there's intent immediately. Obviously, with what's being written about what's transpired in the first six games or so that we've played, D.J. felt like it was an appropriate call.feedback

May 03 2017

I guess the best way to describe it is: I can confirm that there was a call and it happened for both clubs, to basically address the last two weeks and to say, Enough is enough.feedback

May 01 2017

I feel like we've got to pick a spot here. And that's why getting everyone capable of defensive work, including Hanley, is important in that regard.feedback

Apr 30 2017

This is a tough team to match up against. They're going to find a way to get their matchup with the alternating left-right in the lineup. I wouldn't say [the relievers] have exceeded what our internal expectations are, and yet we've not been with a full complement of guys that are on our roster.feedback

Apr 30 2017

If Robby Scott [comes into the game], they've got [Javier] Baez waiting to hit for Jon Jay, and [that's] not a favorable matchup with the short porch in left here.feedback

Apr 30 2017

In the moment, it looked like Ben was late getting to the bag on the back end of that double play. Bogey throws it, tries to lead him there, ends up being behind him. And then we end up throwing the ball around the ballpark.feedback

Apr 29 2017

It was a quality workday for him. Accomplished what the plan was and that was for two simulated innings after he warmed up. Good intensity. So that was a good day for him.feedback

Apr 27 2017

They're executing in every phase of the game. They are probably a little bit more aggressive on the basepaths this year with the personnel that they do have. Their pitching has been very steady, strong for that matter, particularly when you get to the bullpen. They come in playing with a lot of confidence. They are scoring well and they aren't giving up many either. They are playing well.feedback

Apr 25 2017

Any conversation that might have been needed was had and we're on to this series upcoming. What's done is done.feedback

Apr 24 2017

His importance to us speaks for itself. At this point it warrants a further look.feedback

Apr 23 2017

There was legitimate concern in the moment it took place. But the fact that he still has the symptoms he does, we're going to rule everything out. His importance to us speaks for itself. And with any of our players, you get into a situation like this, you give it a 24-48 hour period to see how it responds. And at this point it warrants a further look.feedback

Apr 22 2017

Clearly there is a difference in opinion in how that rule was interpreted and the slide. Bottom line, if that slide last night is not deemed an illegal slide, we should just get rid of the rule.feedback

Apr 22 2017

The rule has three different components and we talked about those. Still, that was an extremely late slide and in my view, an illegal slide.feedback

Apr 22 2017

He can understand the feeling of trying to protect our players. Fact is, we have a player who is not in the lineup tonight as a result of the slide. Basically, they said he received the throw as a first baseman. If that was the case, his left leg would have been the one extended toward the throw.feedback

Apr 16 2017

It's worth the price of admission just to see him.feedback

Apr 14 2017

I know for a fact that he thrives in the DH spot. That's probably his preference overall. He's not boycotting (first base), but I know where his preference lies. In conversations throughout the winter, once we acquired Mitch, the conversations throughout spring training, (Ramirez) understands how our roster is built. What's best for our team has him going to first base on occasion.feedback

Apr 10 2017

He's going to need some time. Hopefully it's just the 10 days, we'll see.feedback

Apr 10 2017

I feel a lot better. Feels like it's going in the right direction.feedback

Apr 10 2017

It's hard to project right now. We'll take a progression similar to spring training. While we have some tentative plans for that progression, we're probably responding or addressing this as David responds to the work sessions. Thus far, it's been good.feedback

Apr 08 2017

The four total walks and the base hit (in the eighth), obviously, are a difficult one here. We dramatically come back and take (the lead with) a big five-run eighth.feedback

Apr 08 2017

There'll be a time in this season when you look to go to (closer Craig) Kimbrel for four outs, but not in Game 3.feedback

Apr 08 2017

This one got away from us.feedback

Apr 08 2017

This hasn't been able to be contained from one certain group to another or a couple of guys. There's three different things that are going around -- one's a respiratory one, one's flu-like symptoms, and one is the full-blown flu.feedback

Apr 05 2017

You love the way Chris Sale goes about his work.feedback

Apr 03 2017

He's got a short track record, we know, but there's never been evidence of panic, even in two-strike situations. He sees the ball extremely well. He's got a true understanding of the strike zone. Pretty special young player.feedback

Mar 21 2017

He's not stagnant in terms of the full range of motion he needs to throw the baseball.feedback

Mar 14 2017

So we're at a 60-foot phase right now. But we don't have (a plan in which) there needs to be X number of sessions at 60 feet then we're going to progress. It was at the doctors' recommendation, do not put him on a structured throwing program, because it may be either too quick or too slow depending on how he feels. And a lot of what's driving this on daily throwing schedule is how David feels.feedback

Mar 13 2017

I'd like to see him over here again before we get too much deeper in camp.feedback

Mar 08 2017

It says he's not afraid of failure, and that's great for any athlete. Athletes are all going to become vulnerable in their performance at some point, and for who's been such a high profile in another sport come in and say, Hey, I'm willing to take a run at this,' I think it's a pretty cool thing. When you look at the raw power in BP, it's pretty evident. It says you've got some pretty good hand-eye coordination. (Baseball's) hard for a guy who plays every year. When you have that kind of gap, I think it's a window into the mindset that anything is possible. Why not take a run with it?feedback

Mar 08 2017 - British Petroleum

It says he's not afraid of failure and I think that's great for any athlete. Athletes are all going to become vulnerable at some point and for a guy who's been such high-profile in another sport to say, You know what? Hey, I'm willing to take a run at this,' I think it's a pretty cool thing. We'll see how it plays out, but when you look at the raw power in BP it's pretty evident. Not to mention, when you're doing something else in another sport, it says you have some pretty good hand-eye coordination.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - British Petroleum

I watched him take a round or two of BP. I don't know what it plays like at game speed.feedback

Mar 07 2017

There's an edge about him, the way he goes about his work, [and] he's got tremendous physical ability to back that up. … You get the sense that the team, on the day he takes the mound, takes on that persona. It can be unique for players coming in the first year and going through an adjustment period, but he seems to be very well equipped to stay focused on the things he can control.feedback

Mar 06 2017

I think every player we have has got a certain amount of scrutiny just because it's Boston. Independent of developments on our roster, health wise or other, Chris Sale is going to draw a lot of attention. Based on what we know of him, I think he'll handle this environment well.feedback

Mar 06 2017

I was a little surprised to see the velocity he had in his first outing. In a way you kind of think it's a high number for this early in camp, but you can't tell a strong competitor to back off.feedback

Mar 04 2017

But we also have to remain with some cautious optimism because he's in a shut-down period and it'll be great to see when he finally puts a ball in his hand and begins that process. Initially, that's really good news.feedback

Mar 04 2017

The shutdown is the focal point.feedback

Mar 04 2017

A very positive exam given the concern a couple days ago. We definitely feel it's a best-case scenario.feedback

Mar 04 2017

A very positive exam given the concern a couple days ago. The approach we're going to take with him is he'll receive medication and treatment in the next seven to 10 days. We'll re-evaluate him at that time.feedback

Mar 04 2017

As we talked about him experiencing the type of forearm issue in spring training, it may be a little more intensified this year, but still, this is the spring training arm he goes through.feedback

Mar 03 2017

A very positive exam given the concern a couple days ago. The approach we're going to take with him is he'll receive medication and treatment in the next seven to 10 days. We'll re-evaluate him at that time. Even talking with David on his way up there, he felt with each passing hour he was becoming more free. As we talked about him experiencing the type of forearm issue in spring training, it may be a little more intensified this year, but still, this is the spring training arm he goes through. A very positive exam given the concern a couple days ago.feedback

Mar 03 2017

He's gone through some soreness in the forearm/elbow area in previous spring trainings but this one has got a little bit more intensity to it.feedback

Feb 01 2017

We know he's dealing with some physical ailments that you manage and work through, and he's doing what he can to get back to that level of performance (last year).feedback

There's a surplus right now. But when you think about the high end of it, this is an exciting group.feedback

Dec 06 2016

In between the lines, he pitches with an edge. His numbers and performance speak for themselves, but I think there is maybe a persona that he projects certainly across the field.feedback

Dec 06 2016

And we really have been able to do that.feedback

Sep 25 2016

Steve Olin was a teammate of mine when the boating accident in spring training took place. The emotions range from shock, disbelief to thinking about their families and the adjustments they're going to have to go through. And the pain and sorrow that they go through.feedback
