→ John Farrell is the New Manager of the Red Sox

They gave up Mike Aviles to get him. I am still not wild about trading a player to get a manager, however, Aviles probably did not have a role on a rebuilding Red Sox team going forward. Since the deal happened so late last night, I have not seen a lot of reactions yet. Overall, I think it’s an okay move, but it is not something that really excites me. Hopefully, a few months into next season, I will be saying that getting Farrell was the beginning of the Red Sox turnaround.
