Quote:
@alexspeier: Source: #redsox agree to hire Farrell through 2015. Compensation will be announced in next couple days, but deal w/Farrell done.


Farrell was formerly the pitching coach for the Red Sox. This obviously leaves AA's club with a void at manager.

The Trade:
To Boston:
John Farrell
PTBN

To Toronto:
SS Mike Aviles

As I said in the other thread, this is the guy management has wanted for the past 2 years, and they finally got him. I would have been just as happy with Brad Ausmus, so hopefully we didn't give up too much.

Edit: @jonmorosi: Source: In John Farrell trade, it appears one player will go in *each* direction. So #RedSox will get a player from #BlueJays too.

@jonmorosi: Source: Player going from #RedSox to #BlueJays was a major leaguer in 2012.

Now I'm a little worried. Daniel Bard maybe?

Keep dreaming. Can I interest you in an Alfredo Aceves? How 'bout a Ryan Sweeney?

Love the hire. Absolutely love it. Farrell hopefully will bring Lester back to what he should be and he'll have the respect of the players who have been around the team for awhile. Farrell wasn't there when the team collapsed in 2011 and he obviously wasn't here last year either. The Sox were more or less a very good team while Farrell was the team's pitching coach.

I wanted him last year, but didn't let myself consider the possibility last time around because of the Blue Jays' vicegrip on him last winter. I'm glad we were more insistent on getting a respected manager this time around.

Apparently the Red Sox are getting Adam Lind as well.

This is a win for the Jays if they get rid of Adam Lind.

That's still not confirmed yet, people are just connecting the dots.

Well whoever it is, isn't it robbery basically for the Red Sox to steal a manager from a team and basically give up nothing in compensation?
