Im sure you'd love to think that FA will stay away, would help Toronto a lot wouldn't it? Doesn't work like that. It's about the money, and they have a lot of it.
We'll see with Farrell. Just because he didn't work out in Toronto, doesn't mean he'll be bad in Boston, and if he can fix Lester and Bard while he's here, then it's worth it.

The Jays are screwed for years to come. They are basically starting over...again, which seems to be a motto with every manager since they fired Cito Gaston the first time (they must switch managers every two years or so) The pressure is on to win now and the only way to do that is to get a manager that can teach and motivate.
Boston was a mess last year and if you want to blame that on Valentine, fine. But Farrell is not the upgrade you guys needed either. You needed someone who could come in and control all those egos and bring it all together.
