The sentiment on one side of Red Sox Nation over the hiring of John Farrell is probably best summed up by our own Lou Merloni:

Farrell for Aviles? Interesting. Could have a got a decent PLAYER for Aviles. John is a good choice. All 5 would h e been hood choices Lou Merloni (@LouMerloni) October 21, 2012

And the other? Maybe Bill Simmons puts it best:

I'm excited about the Red Sox getting John Farrell - he has plenty of experience leading 75-win teams, he's perfect. Bill Simmons (@sportsguy33) October 21, 2012
They're certainly more on Simmons' side in Toronto, if Blue Jays fan (and old friend) Tao of Stieb is any indication:

Had to double check that the Farrell trade wasn't a dream. Sleep deprivation messes with your head. Tao of Stieb (@TaoofStieb) October 21, 2012
And the rest of the world?

I know manager trades have happened before ... but the Red Sox trading Mike Aviles for their next manager still seems weird.

"John Farrell was a terrible manager, but we should have be enable to get more for him, eh?" - Get used to that sentiment. It's coming. Tao of Stieb (@TaoofStieb) October 21, 2012
