McAdam: Sox should know Farrell's availability by next week

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.

Draymond Green tells Paul Pierce he doesn't get a farewell tour; Pierce says Warrior blew a 3-1 lead

Draymond Green isn’t exactly known as being the most respectful competitor, so perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he spent the early minutes of last night’s game against the Clippers telling Paul Pierce he isn’t a legend. 

Pierce, who will retire at the end of the season, was not in the game at the time, but Green called to him from the court, telling him nobody would give him a farewell tour. 

“Chasing that farewell tour. They don’t love you like that,” Green said. “You can’t get that farewell tour. They don’t love you like that.” 

Green then said something else that was tough to hear through the broadcast before adding, “You thought you was Kobe?”

After the game, Pierce responded on Twitter, going to the easiest and most obvious insult available. As Chris Rock once said, “If I’m driving, and someone crashes into me with one leg, I’m gonna talk about the leg.”
