Farrell was ejected during last night’s game against the New York Yankees for disputing a play that was reviewed on replay after the umpires reversed their call on what would have been an inning-ending double play in the fourth inning.

The Yankees scored all three of their runs against the Red Sox in the fourth inning.

“It’s hard to have any faith in the system,” Farrell said after the game.

“There’s going to be a learning curve,” Farrell added. “But again you’d think video replay would be conclusive or there are plays where it would not be conclusive, which was tonight. We ended up on the wrong side both times.”

Back in January, replay was approved for the first time by both Major League Baseball and the Player’s Union.
