    FRANCONA tells us about his sports acumen?

    Francona wished the Bruins well in the Stanley Cup finals. “From everything I’ve heard, Claude Julien’s a great guy and they’re a Boston team,’’ he said. “But I just don’t like hockey. I just don’t understand it.’’



    HMMM, I wonder if that line is about only hockey of sports in general........  seems sometimes that he does not understand baseball either, with his bullpen maneuverings and his "It is a long season and games won in May don't count at the end" philosophies.

    You got it wrong, Chuck.  Francona is one of the best at understanding how to manage the long baseball season.

    To say nothing of the two WS championships and a pretty impressive winning percentage.  Yup, since we're not going 162-0, let's take him out back and put him out of his misery.  Good lord, some people are never satisfied.

    Tito is one of best managers to manage for the entire season.  Doesn't let the team feel down when they are in a rut like 2-10 to start the season, and deosn't let themselves get ahead when they are on a tear like now at 27-12.  He is like the stock market, steadily climbing over the long run, not reacting to the short term ups and downs.  Makes all the right moves with season implications, not just the game.

    Has delivered 2 WS so far.  Strong chance to win the 3rd this year.

    Nothing wrong with him admitting he doesn't understand hockey.  He understands baseball, and that's good enough.

    It has been observed that every manager with 3 or more world series wins is in the Hall of Fame. What would we do if Francona managed the Sox to a third sereis win?

    Also, what manager besides Farncona has two world series wins since 2000?
