John Farrell Calls Blue Jays’ Fan Base a ‘Sleeping Giant,’ Excited About City’s Optimism (Video)

The Blue Jays took two of three from the Red Sox, and they now sit at 4-2 to begin the season. But that could just be the start of something bigger.

Manager John Farrell discussed the team’s fans prior to Wednesday’s game, and he called the fan base “a sleeping giant,” saying that the city has just been waiting for something to latch onto when it comes to the game of baseball. They may now have that, as the Jays improved in the offseason and look poised to give the perennial AL East contenders a run for their money.
