This is the best hire a team will make all offseason. Fredi Gonzalez for the Braves comes close, but there was no surprise in there. Farrell is a top 5 pitching coach, and that Boston organization knows and loves baseball. Great hire for the Blue Jays...

This isn't quite the NFL so he's not going to change everything, but the Blue Jays are quietly building something up North.

There's some symetry that Farrell rightly gets a promotion the same day Dave Eiland gets fired. Have a lot of respect for Farrell with the work he has done with Buchholz and Lester, contrasted with the mess Eiland has made with Joba and Hughes.
