He’s well respected. And, Farrell is just 4 months older than me and went to High School about 30 minutes away from where I live now. So, personally, there’s an interest connection for me. But, more so, I wonder if this is just a positive for Toronto – or, is it also a take-away for Boston too? In any event, the A.L. East could be a very interesting place next season. It used to be just Boston and New York. And, the last three seasons, Tampa Bay has been in the mix. Now, the O’s have Showalter and the Jays have Farrell.
The Yankees have to play something like half their schedule against A.L. East teams. And, there’s very few gimmies in that bunch any more, is there?
