Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Following a 4-2 loss in New York last night, John Farrell and the Red Sox head up north to Toronto to face the re-tooled Blue Jays. However, Farrell may not have the most enthusastic crowd waiting for his arrival... Somewhere along the road from Toronto to Boston, John Farrell became a bad guy to Canadians last year. One critic mentioned this spring that the opinion is more of a Canadian habit than based on anything terrible Farrell did in his exit as Blue Jays manager to become the Red Sox boss. Canadians don’t like it when anyone leaves Canada. It happens too often and those that stay have a complex about it, according to the one loyalist. So tonight, when Farrell makes his return to Toronto for the first time after two losing seasons at the helm, he is going to hear, almost certainly, a great deal of booing whenever he pokes his head out of the dugout or goes to the mound to make a pitching change. Farrell, well used to the topic after a couple of Blue Jays encounters this spring in Florida, at least is not going to be caught by surprise. “In this case, with how things unfolded, the unique set of circumstances that surround both the change in Toronto and here in Boston, I can fully appreciate that they might have those feelings,” said Farrell. “What might come out of it, we’ll see starting (tonight).” Herald: John Farrell set for cool Toronto reception So it's early April (or as the Toronto likes to call it, the baseball season) and the Rogers Centre should be rockin' tonight, as the boo-birds are set to take charge against Farrell. Blue Jays fans are laughable. They show up in April all pumped up and ready for baseball, but then slim down the second there's a three-game losing streak. Seriously. My buddies and I went up there in 2011 for a Red Sox vs Blue Jays game and there may have been 15,000 in attendance...and I'm being kind with that number. We were also escorted back to our $16.00 bleacher seats when we tried to get down front to one of the 350 empty field boxes. Makes sense. God forbid it looks like you have a crowd on TV by moving everyone foward, but hey what do I know? Anyways, what are these fans so angry about? First of all, Farrell was traded from the Blue Jays. Sure he may have asked out, but the Blue Jays front office could have easily turned him down. Second of all, what in the hell was so great that Farrell did for the Blue Jays organization? Mediocrity? Continuing their trend of being left off the baseball map? Whatever, boo at Farrell all you want Toronto. Get it out now...have a blast. Might as well, seeing that you'll stop showing up by the end of May. I guarantee you the fans' negative reception is the last concern on the Red Sox or Farrell's mind. Happy Friday everyone!
