The thing is, though, that a manager's effect upon a team is incredibly overrated. Look at the Texas Rangers: They have done very, very, very well over the last few years, despite Ron Washington being a very, very, very stupid manager. Good players play well, shitty players play, well, shitty, and that's entirely independent of the manager.

Farrell did not display any aptitude for developing young players during his two years in Toronto, and beyond that, pitching coaches rarely do well as managers. I'm kind of excited to see just how deep the Boston blow-up goes.
