John Farrell to travel to Red Sox game vs. Jays

JUPITER, Fla. — One good thing about Red Sox manager John Farrell deciding to take the 2:45 p.m. trip to Dunedin Monday to face the Blue Jays — rather than the 45-minute ride to Rays camp in Port Charlotte — is that he can face the media regarding his sudden departure from Toronto now rather than when Boston plays at Toronto in the second series of the season.

Some Blue Jays fans believe Farrell pulled a fast one by trying to shoot his way out of Dodge to go to the Red Sox. Farrell insisted Sunday that’s the not the reason he chose the trip.
