All well and good, Chad, but what about JBJ? I think we should try to shop him in a serious fashion and recover some value. I don't think he wants to be in Boston.

I think this was MLB cashing Tito's chit. Tito was hosed - twice - for MOTY and this was just catch-up. Sure Farrell deserved it, but - yeah -Tito needed props and those Toronto guys have long memorie more »

Nice for John Farrell, no grudges, but Tito was hosed more than once on MOTY - like 2004 - and I would not be disappointed if he got it this time around. He did a nice job in Cleveland. Just saying.

Quality teams will take a loss like this and shake it off, get back to the park in a good mood and get to work on a new winning streak. This is a test of talent, of course, but also a test of characte more »
