John Farrell robbed in Manager of the Year voting

ORLANDO — The Red Sox’ John Farrell was as surely the American League Manager of the Year as the sky is blue.

You could make a case for Farrell’s old boss Terry Francona, the former Red Sox manager, coming in second place because he did a nice job of managing an Indians team that has a payroll about $90 million less than Boston’s and he led them from 94 losses to 92 wins. Like Farrell, he also incorporated new players in with the old. He didn’t have quite the same talent on the roster.
