    He's got a pair of coconuts to want to deal with that level of talent.  But Buck took over the O's after Valentine said they had big problems, so maybe Tito can turn them around.  Good luck.

    Yeah Joe, agreed, but there probably won't be a lot of managerial opportunities this off season and he has ties to Cleveland.  It will be interesting to see if Cleveland now becomes more of a viable trade partner now that Tito is on board.  Would love to see a deal for Choo.  I wish him luck as well as he has always been a class act.

    Nothing there makes sense.

    Choo should go since he has only one year left.

    They have no shot, imo, at even being a .500 team.  I like Tito, but if this is a fairly major rebuild, wouldn't Alomar make more sense?

    You would think Alomar would make more sense, especially with HIS ties to Cleveland.  There's got to be a significant red flag somewhere.  On the surface, Cleveland seems like a full rebuild with limited resources, but with this new playoff system, obviously more teams are thinking they have a much better shot, and with a little luck, anything can happen.  Going into the season, Oakland and Baltimore were obviously regarded as bottom 5 A.L. teams by everybody, so the "why not us?" attitude will be out in full force.  If I was managing a team, that's what I would be telling my players.

    Good for Francona for going to a lousy team....then again there wont be much pressure for him to win....maybe he is smarter than i thought....

    Re: Too late to sign Tito to be our next manager

    I wish him luck, however in my opinion Francona talents are being put to waste in Cleveland and he is not the right man for the job. Francona is best at managing club houses, media, and ego's. He's not a Field Manager exactly. I hated how he managed bullpens late in game, he relies to much on Power and Home Runs, and doesn't steal or play small ball. Cleveland should of went with Alomar. Francona would of been better off waiting and going to a club like LA (either team.), Detroit, Texas, New York (either teams). I bet with in the next 2 years a job at one of the big market teams will be open. Heck I think Toronto would of been a better fit for Terry. Either way I wish him best of luck.

    FrancoMa is a one trick pony----play for the big inning and lead the league in hitting into double plays.  If he plays that kind of game in Cleveland with that kind of team, well in three years he will have failed as miserably as he did in Philadelphia and in his last four years in Boston.  He had better alter his game radically because his new team needs to depend on speed, small ball, moving the runners and using the hit and run more than one a month.  I do not wish him ill but I think he is going to fail there because that team needs a good bench managers and Tito is a clubhouse man, not a strategist.  Not even close to a good one.

    Best wishes to Francona.

    He was a very good manager for us, both on the field and off.  I don't understand all the contempt for him.

    Now that you've announced he'll fail, you'll be wishing nothing but ill-will for the guy.

    We know how it works, Fred.

    I guess it's because he didn't give away free outs to the other team by bunting all the time, and apparently some of the posters on this board sat in the bullpen during games so they knew which relievers were available at all times.  They also had the matchup history of every opposing player against every Sox pitcher and they referred to it throughout every game (like Tito and his staff did). Mike Scosiscia is highly regarded on this board because he plays small ball more often, yet he only has half as many Championships as Tito in a longer period of time with similar payroll and arguably better talent.  Tito is a highly regarded manager throughout baseball, but a lot of fans just don't get it.

    We do not agree on how good a manager he was, but I think we do agree that he is a good person who did not deserve to get screwed on his way out the door here like he did. So I have nothing but good wishes for him except when the Sox play the Indians.

    I am and will forever be thoroughly convinced Tito had to be relieved of his Red Sox managerial position. I do want to see him do well over there in Cleveland though, and it should be exciting if the Indians try to win for a change.

    And, if Tito gets the Indians to win, what will the Tito bashers say?

    If they lose and lose, will the Tito lovers say anything?
