New boss for Boston’s ‘Mad Men’
After splitting ways with a disgruntled Bobby Valentine, the Red Sox hired Terry Francona’s former pitching coach, John Farrell, to helm the squad.
Considering the many holes the Sox needed to fill going into 2013, the Sox’s new manager had quite a lot of work cut out for him to make this team successful.
As this season progressed, Farrell was able to inspire the team, creating — for this year at least — a sense of chemistry among the teammates. Like Don Draper of “Mad Men,” the new boss was able to get his squad motivated and back on the right track.
