Because it's such a rare occasion to use the Jays' logo:

Boston Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell was named as the Toronto Blue Jays' manager on Monday.

He takes over a young team with some promise, if not for the sad fact of their being part of the AL East division.

Stemming from his decision, Manny Ramirez has stated an interest in playing for Farrell in Toronto.

If nothing else, Manny joining Toronto would make for some interesting visits to Boston next season.

Manny being Manny is great.. when he's actually producing, but he hasn't been the Manny of old for a while now. He isn't getting any younger, and I don't think that he is the token veteran that team needs.

Probably not happening given that Adam Lind probably isn't ready to play first base every day. Also, getting Manny right now has vague echoes of the Jays signing Frank Thomas in 2007 and thus totally robbing themselves of lineup maneuverability by having to lock the Hurt into the DH spot every day.

Hey now, Fat Bob was tied for the AL lead in saves last year. He made us sweat it out, but he generally did the job. I totally understand why the move was made, and look forward to see who will grab the closer's job.
