With the Red Sox walk-off win courtesy of Mitch Moreland over the White Sox on Friday night, not only did the Red Sox extend their current win streak to 4 games to go up 3 games in the AL East standings, but birthday boy, John Farrell, in his fifth season as manager of the Red Sox notched his 400th.
Now while a lot of fans and media members have criticized his sometimes questionable in-game managerial decisions, there’s no question that John has fit pretty well with this organization after previously serving as pitching coach under the franchise's second all-time winningest manager in Terry “Tito” Francona, and helping bring the city and the Red Sox a World Series Championship during an emotional 2013 season after the tragedy at the Boston Marathon.
With more than a little over 8 weeks to go in the regular season, Farrell will be looking to add many more wins to his resume as the Red Sox look to clinch a postseason berth and look to erase memories of last years Divisional Series sweep at the hands of coincidently Terry Francona.
But for now let's all take a moment to salute John Farrell on the historical milestone in his managerial career. Here’s to many more wins and hopefully more championships for the Boston Red Sox. #YABO
