Red Sox manager John Farrell returned to Toronto on Friday night to face the Blue Jays, the team he skippered from 2011-12 before taking his self-proclaimed "dream job" in Boston. Unsurprisingly, the reception was not warm. He was booed heartily as was the rest of his club.
The Red Sox got the final laugh, though, winning a back-and-forth affair 6-4. After the game, Boston outfielder/DH Jonny Gomes said the booing was no big deal:

Gomes signed a two-year, $10 million contract with the Red Sox during the offseason, and I sure hope he doesn't think he really signed for $20 million. Hopefully he has a good agent, or at least a good accountant.
