If John Farrell isn't the next manager, who should it be?

Now that Bobby Valentine is officially out the door, the next step is to find a manager that will fill his role.

The popular pick seems to be John Farrell, currently the manager of the Blue Jays. But what if Toronto doesn't let him go? It's certainly not a given that he comes to Boston.

That leads us to our UNO's Sports Tonight Question of the Day:

Rockies acquire Pat Neshek from Phillies

ST. LOUIS - The Colorado Rockies have obtained right-hander Pat Neshek from the Philadelphia Phillies for three minor league players on Wednesday.

The 36-year-old Neshek is 3-2 with a 1.12 ERA in 43 relief appearances for the Phillies. A two-time All-Star, Neshek has played parts of 11 seasons with six teams.

"He's having a good year," Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado said. "He's a veteran. He'll be a great addition to our bullpen."

Neshek is looking forward to his environs.

"It's exciting, jump right into a playoff race," Neshek said. "It's a great team with a great offense."

Colorado gave up right-handed pitchers J.D. Hammer and Alejandro Requena and infielder Jose Gomez.

Requena, a mid-season All-Star with Class-A Asheville, is 8-3 with 2.85 ERA in 10 games this season.
