L'Affair Farrell In Pictures: A Photo Essay

Who says off-nights are boring? Okay, many people do but last night was an exception. The Toronto Blue Jays "traded" their manager and an unknown player for Mike Aviles thus ending the two years of Farrell Ball. Updated with trade info.

UPDATE David Carpenter is going to the Sox. I wonder if they'll change their 7th inning song from "Sweet Caroline" to "Close to You"?

Update. Turns out that Farrell surprised AA with his love of "Sweet Caroline."

The End.
