    Bring Back Tito

    So the Red Sox lose 6 of 7 and are completely lifeless facing 2 more against the Yanks and a 3 game series against a tough Detroit team featuring Justin Verlander. They are coming off an embarrassing loss against NY and are given up for dead. They got Lester on the mound against the #1 offense in the league following one of the worst outings ever. And the next 2 games are on national TV so they can look forward getting beaten in front of millions. Which brings Tito to the game. As part of the prep for his ESPN gig, he stops be the Red Sox locker room and chats up his former team. And they go out and win 4 in a row. They play some their best basebal of the season and they win every way possible. The win a slugfest. They win an extra inning, low scoring game. They win going away. And they win a rain shortened game. Coincidence? I think not. Bring back Tito.

    Not that I blame Bobby V for the failure of the Red Sox season this year, but I really liked Tito. He was the face of the Red Sox. I argee, he won't be back as long as John Henry owns this team. I just wish he can become our new GM, if not the team manager. Hope, the Sox keep winning and surprise all of us. Can't wait for the Papi to return as much as they just won four in a row with his absence.

    Tito probably said all the right things in that clubhouse, and I really wouldn't be surprised if at some point Pedroia said, "Not to take away from us winning 15 of 17 under Bobby, who is doing a good job, but that Tito conversation with all of us before that nationally televised Yankee game really got us on a positive track. I miss him as our leader."

    He would still be managing if those little fireside chats had worked last September.  Get real.  Baseball is all about individual matchups and almost never about inspirational leadership by the manager or former manager.

    He was such a good manager, he passed up the other 29 teams to work at ESPN!

    If you want to believe that, you are entitled. I would think just the opposite would be true. They realized what a bonehead he was and figured they better start winning or Henry might want him back!

    this is it. One of so many complete wastes of chatspace.

    Francona is too smart to come back.

    Re: Bring Back Tito

    Francona didn't get fired, but simply didn't get his contract renewed.  Once he realized no one else wanted him to manage in the near term, he got a good job at espn which has been a good fit.  It's also better for his health.  If he continues to be good at it, he would be crazy to go back to managing (which I happen to think he was pretty good at).

    Re: Bring Back Tito

    I think the reason he didn't get an initial offer was 2-fold.
    1. Theo I think wanted him, but realized the backlash would be too much for Sox Nation to see both of them jump ship to Chitown.
    2. LL definitely, positively hurt Tito's reputation with the allegations about his 
    use of meds. It got personal, and I do think it scared of some teams. I'm sure those teams also felt there should be a "cooling off" period for Tito.

     And I agree he did make the right choice to go to TV for now. He is a very funny guy and has a good take on his analysis, very light, often humorous and I'm always listening to him. A natural. I think Tito will be managing sometime soon==2 WS winning managers don't sit on the sidelines for too long.

    Lloyd....cmon, KC jones won as many titles as Francona....is he an awesome coach???? Mike Ditka? It is the players with talent that win...managers only matter when you have less talent (like Bobby V this year)...Even Bill Belichick only won 9 games (barley above .500) when Brady went down a few years ago..

    Actually, I think the reason for the win streak was that Cody Ross prayed to St. Anthony for a win streak... or that half the team got laid the night before...

    I see you have the same trouble with football facts as you do with baseball.

    The Patriots finished 11-5 in 2008, without Brady.

    With a 16 game schedule, 11 wins is better than "barely above" .500.
