Red Sox coaching staff full of awesome stories

(Continued)

Lovullo is a big part of that communication that was established early on this season.

The .224 hitter in 837 major league plate appearances certainly paid his dues as a minor league manger. He managed nine seasons in the Indians and Red Sox organizations before joining his first major league staff in 2011 as Farrell’s first base coach with the Toronto Blue Jays.

He returned to Boston with Farrell and loved every minute of this 2013 season.

“We’re a behind-the-scenes group that really puts a program together and lets these guys understand what they have to follow,” Lovullo said. “They deserve the credit for kind of gravitating to what we were talking about. As far as the staff itself, we are a very, very close group. I’m sorry to see the season end the way it is right now because that means I don’t get to see guys. But we won the last game and that’s all that matters.”
