Farrell speech opens Red Sox full-squad workouts

(Continued)

In 2007, Farrell’s first year as pitching coach, the team won its second World Series title of the decade. Farrell, who said the team’s mistakes were addressed with Cherington during the interview process, wants to get Boston back to that elite level ... quickly.

“To a man in that room, everyone associates the name ‘Red Sox’ with winning,” he said. “And that came out in conversation throughout the offseason. There’s been an eagerness to get back down here and get started and rewrite that script.”

The Red Sox — stumbling to the finish line — lost the final eight games of last season.

“Different degrees of embarrassment, different degrees of knowing that what transpired last year isn’t the norm or isn’t the expectation,” Farrell said. “So, I’m confident of that mind-set to rewrite that story.”
