    Francona book

    Read it while on vacation in the Outer Banks.  I thought it was good read for Sox fans, just curious what others thought about it.

    Re: Francona book

    I got the book a couple of years ago--I pulled it out this week to check out the Chicken and Beer participants and I wanted to see if Lester had come to Francona during Francona's turbulant days. Lester, Lackey and the departed Beckett were a big part of C & B episode and I did not see that Lester did much  to come to Tito's side as Tito had when Lester had his Cancer issues.

    I'm not sure if any other players were particularly involved but if that was the group the team can now put that totally behind them into the archives.

    In the book he pegged the 2011 team perfectly, a group of self-centered babies.  It's clear he's not a big fan of Lucchino or Werner.

    Gonzalez, Crawford, Drew, and Beckett were a big part of this.

    Beckett--50 mill extension for no reason. CC-142 mil contract when the Sox already had Ellsbury. AGON-160 mil contract at expense of keeping Beltre/VMART. JD Drew? Hangnail led to days off.

    Drew was hurt most the season and was a quiet unassuming guy in clubhouse. He was not a problem.
