Red Sox find a new manager in the middle of the night

Am I the only person who finds it strange that news of the Red Sox hiring John Farrell as manager is happening at the middle of the night on a Friday?

Everyone is asleep and weekends are the worst time to spread a news cycle.

With all of the shadiness and backstabbing in the Red Sox organization over the past few seasons, shouldn’t the new era of Red Sox history not start on such a cloudy note?

That may seem like nitpicking, but doesn’t this just seem like more of the creepy, Star Chamber Red Sox culture?

I hope I am wrong.
Welcome back to the Red Sox, John Farrell. It’s been a big pile of suck since we last saw you.

John Farrell is with the Red Sox… send Lackey to Toronto

Seriously. If the Red Sox need to send compensation to the Toronto Blue Jays for manager John Farrell, see if they will bite on John Lackey.

Think that is outlandish? Did you think the Red Sox would find anyone to pick up the tab on Carl Crawford while sitting on the DL counting his tens of millions of dollars.

What’s the worst that could happen by asking?
