Jays Could Have Had Andrew Bailey For Farrell

Chuck Solomon/SI
According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Toronto Blue Jays could have taken Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey as compensation for letting John Farrell go to Boston. The Jays took shortstop Mike Aviles instead, but it's rather shocking that Boston has essentially given up on Bailey enough to offer him up as a sacrificial lamb for a manager. John Farrell has since given—at best—lukewarm support for Bailey, saying he'll be in the mix for closer if healthy. How's that Reddick deal working out for you?
