    I think you mean with the Red Sox.

    Including the Phillies, Francona is 985-877 and is tied for 59th all-time. He'll reach 1,000 wins later this month.

    His 700 wins with the Red Sox are second all-time. If he manages four more years, he'll become the Red Sox's all-time winningest manager. He'll pass Cronin for career wins before that.

    kim,

    I agree, Terry has been a pretty good manager.  He may make a mistake here and there but I'm glad we have him.

    Lets also not forget the 8 WS game wins (2 WS titles).

    I expect he'll be around as long as he wants to be.

    Shouldn't the thread be titled.."Red Sox, 700 wins while Francona has been called their manager"?

    Other than his penchant for leaving pitchers in too long, I have zero problem with Tito. Congrats in advance to him!! We could be doing A LOT worse in terms of the Manager. He has learned a lot since his first few years with The Boston Red Sox and honed his skills well. A truly good fit for Boston.

       MLB network ranked Tito the number one manager in baseball, I'm not sure that I agree, but his name belongs in the arguement, and after this year he'll have 3 rings.

    Could be I didn't say "Good morning to my good friends on the Red Sox: On the front burner." lol

    Actually, it appears fans have shown up to say some nice things about Francona.  It's good to see.

    Thank you, Roy. I'm going to correct it. I'd like to say that's what I meant, but I really did have the wrong information, and didn't even know it. That's what happens when I start to get involved with stats. It's never good. :)

    And thank you for the added information. I say he reaches the winningest manager milestone.

    Thank you for all the positive posts about Terry. I truly believe at the end of this season, he will have earned the respect of those who doubt him even now. That will be a great thing to see.

      Tcal ... The blind squirrel thing is a hypothetical.  Usually they don't get to live too long - but become part of the "Circle of Life. "  Unless they are blind cuz they've lived soooooo long.  And then they become a part of the"Circle of Life."

        :o)  I know one thing ... I never ever SHOT a blind squirrel.


              But then again ... I've not shot any squirels ...


                               some birds ....  

                       



            Quail, mostly.




      KIM,

       Kudos for the OP and thread.

       I had to smile when I heard the announcers give Tito credit ... first thought was .... he won 700 games in spite of himself ...  LOL!!!!   '41 gts the nod for the thought, but we get the pleasure of Tito being Tito and doing so well.  


       Heck, most of us do well in spite of ourselves.  Then, there are those who can't ... do well no matter what.  And in fairness, I refuse to name Softy, Frankie, Babe, ....


       Way to go, Tito!!!

    Hope you're right, but let's face it, some will never admit when they're wrong. I'll bet if message boards were around back in the '60s, GreenBay.com would have had a handful of posters who insisted they knew more about football than Vince Lombardi.

    Yes, Yaz, we get the pleasure of Tito being Tito and doing so well. We'll get even more pleasure when he finally gets the last laugh on his naysayers!

    Btw, did you know a "bird" in Brit slang is a female?  After shooting the Sheriff, I'm just keeping my eyes peeled. Smile
