    [QUOTE]So you think Francona is a poor manager, which means he worse than below average.  There are 14 managers in the AL.  Name 9 managers in the AL that you think are better.

    It would be easier to name those that are worse than Francona.................ummmmmmmmmmmmm, nope, that's not easy.

    [QUOTE] It took a lot of guts for Francona to send Beckett out to the mound for the 7th inning. He had just given up 4 runs in the 6th that gave the Yankees the lead and he had hit a batter and walked another. Was this like sending Pedro back out there or was this perhaps because we don't have a reliable 7th inning guy? I think it's great that it worked out, but wondered what others thought of the move.

    u and the others that agree with you are a big part of the problem. The starters need to go 7 whenever possible, t was the right move. The staff is regressing on endurance, and a team like Philly will own us based on this one fact.

    Comparing sending Beckett out for the 7th in a regular season game is a lot different that sending Pedro out in the 8th in an important play-off game.. and that to was the right move. The manager waited too long into that inning to make a move, but he was right to ahve Pedro start the inning.

    I agree Burr. Lester had an extra day rest in 2 of his previous 3 starts and had less than 90 pitches his last start. We set him up to be well-rested, then didn't take advantage of it in a game of much importance.
