One of the benefits of being up late is catching breaking news, especially if the news relates to the local Baseball team, the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Jays made a trade with the Boston Red Sox earlier this evening with manager John Farrell going to Boston with his 73-89 record and 31-year-old utility infielder Mike Aviles coming back to TO as compensation.

Word has it that Blue Jays 1B/DH Adam Lind and his $5.15 million dollar contract is also heading to Boston.

I never got that warm, fuzzy feeling from Farrell and wondered how the Boston Red Sox former pitching coach handled his pitching staff considering so many of the starters blew out their elbows and required Tommy John surgery.

Hopefully there is more to this deal than just the manager and Lind for Aviles, otherwise Jays GM Alex Anthopolous is going to have a lot of explaining to do!

Best candidate for manager of the Jays remains to be Sandy Alomar Jr.  He is the older brother of Jays Hall of Fame 2nd baseman Roberto Alomar.

    Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
