Now that the dust has settled on the Bobby Valentine era, Sean McAdam dives into the search for the next manager of the Boston Red Sox.

John Farrell is the odds on favorite to fill the post, but the big questions are whether or not Toronto will allow Farrell to leave, and what the price will be.

McAdam believes by this time next week the Red Sox will have a good idea of what it will take to lure Farrell away from Toronto, and whether or not they're willing to meet that price.

There are also some rumblings that Torey Lovullo would be the Red Sox second choice if Farrell can't be pried away from the Blue Jays. Lovullo is also being rumored as the replacement for Farrell in Toronto if the current manager does in fact leave for Boston.
