Farrell is a great manager, and he'll be perfect in Boston. the Blue Jays had soo many injuries both to their pitching staff and star players (Bautista, Lawrie Morrow) and underwhelming years from supposedly consistent guys, its tough to put the season on him. He's perfect with the media, and is going to a team that not only knows and respects him, but also has solid leaders in the clubhouse (unlike the Jays). i think he's gonna lead a resurgence in Boston and the Jays are gonna regret this transaction. They only got Aviles (i assume) so he can replace Johnson at 2nd or Escobar at SS.

Farrell was terrible when it came to bullpen management. Either pulling the starters too soon or too late and replacing them with a reliever who doesn't match up well against the batter.

Plus, as a former pitching coach, you would think he could do something about Romero's sudden crappiness.

I guess he knows that he's not likely to get another job in baseball any time soon, so he doesn't care how many bridges he burns.

Pablo Sandoval has 3 HRs in 3 at bats, and 4 RBI. Impressive night already.

I don't think Valentine realizes that no one cares. Red Sox fans don't, Yankee fans don't, Mets fans don't, etc. I think he made the playoffs twice in his 16 seasons as a coach. Good luck finding a job while bad mouthing your last employer, clown.

Hat's off to the San Francisco Baseball Giants!

Glad I got to see them in their park this year, and awesome that the first team my son sees in person - wins the *** World Series.

Pretty cool that both Posey and Cabrera came up huge for their respective teams. The Giants won it in grand style. Great stuff from their closer, striking out the side to seal it.

I know some posters on here continue to purport the myth that home runs are not a viable source of scoring runs in the playoffs, so please read here:
http://www.pinstripedbible.com/2012/...-not-this-year

Quote:
However, the aggregate data during the LDS era suggests the growing conventional emphasis on manufacturing runs in October is greatly exaggerated. Since 1995, 35.5% of runs during the regular season have come via the long ball, compared to 39.1% in the postseason.
Additionally, the Yankees were a top ten team in EVERY major offensive statistic last season, so to suggest that they could only score via the home run is ludicrous.

There was no doubt about either of these. The AL MVP is the controversial one.

I don't think Harper for NL ROY was really a shoe in. he did finish strong though

makes me proud to be a Jays fan. now hopefully we get a good veteran manager that can keep track of the young guys and some of the injury bug that got us last year wont be so bad. also would be great to add another mid rotation arm like Marcum or Guthrie

Wait, Mark Buehrle played for the Marlins? I totally missed that.

Still not as bad Piazza's six day stint with the team.
