I have a hard time seeing the Sox pick a manager with so little experience as Ausmus. Boston is a tough place to manage. Seems more likely that they really want Farrell and are trying to portray Ausmus as a more viable candidate than he is to try and keep the price low.
If they know Farrell is on the outs with his GM it is just a matter of time until they agree on price. I predict it gets worked out soon and the compensation price is a fair amount higher than that Carpenter kid they got for Epstein, but lower than they asked last season. Both teams appear to have incentive to make it happen, but letting a manager go to the same job with a division rival isn't going to happen for free. Even if the Jay's don't really want to keep Farrell, letting him go to the Sox and use everything he's learned about the Jay's organization against them probably isn't too appealing.
