Here is what wrote about what the Boston Red Sox could do after they relieved Bobby Valentine of his managerial duties less than a fortnight ago:
The odds on favorite would be Toronto Blue Jays manager John Farrell who served as the Red Sox pitching coach from 2006 to 2010. I could see the Sox trading somebody like Mike Aviles to get Farrell.
Well, today the Red Sox did exactly that.
The Red Sox, of course, wanted Farrell to succeed Terry Francona a year ago but the Jays wouldn’t grant the Red Sox request to interview. Instead, they hired Bobby V. and we know how well that turned out.
I don’t think the Red Sox will win the World Series in 2013 but I do think Farrell will help them return to respectability.
It’s a win-win. I think the Blue Jays will go out and hire Tim Wallach to be their next manager. The Jays actually wanted Wallach following Cito Gaston’s retirement after the 2010 season but the Dodgers wouldn’t let the Jays talk to their third base coach and instead hired Farrell. So now the Red Sox have the manager they wanted in the first place really want and the Jays may soon have the same.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
