Farrell was officially named manager on Sunday. Then, Bogar was fired and Torey Lovullo was hired as our new bench coach.
In terms of moves, nothing big has happened yet, obviously. Mike Aviles was traded to Toronto for Farrell, so we are in shortstop limbo yet again. Ben met with Shohei Otani, an eighteen-year-old Japanese phenom who, if acquired, will hopefully pan out exponentially better than Dice-K did. And last but not least, the brass is negotiating a deal with Ross and with Papi. The deal with Papi is probably going to be a long one, one that would most likely allow him to retire with us if he chooses to do so at that point.
In other news, the Pats beat the Jets in yet another close one, 29-26.
