    Francona: The Red Sox Years

    Just got it on the Kindle Fire HD today. Should be an interesting read. Probably a lot more to it than the couple blurbs released already.

    I'll get mine during my lunch break.  

    The last baseball book I bought was Johnny Damon's back in 2005.  I waited in line for three hours at a Barnes and Nobles in NYC for his autograph.    LOL

    That's right. The reason he got fired was zero playoff wins for millions over 3 years and about a half a billion for his loser players on those 3 teams.

    You are truly clueless.



    3 years and less than 500 mill but don't worry.

    Johnny D's book was a fast read.  Completely monosyllabic :)  I felt like an idiot...

    As I said, "about a half a billion for zero playoff wins and failed to make the playoffs the last 2 years that the pathetic Tito launched his blame others for the job me and my players failed to do and sell books tour".



    "nearly a Billion Dollars Paid"

    " for millions"

    You have trouble with big numbers, don't you...

    “There was always an inherent tension between what we were good at, what we wanted to do -- the long-term approach -- and this Monster. Talk about the arc of the decades. I think our group was really good at fighting that Monster and being true to our approach in the early and middle years, then toward the end – and I blame myself for this -- we sort of gave in to it. Seeing the reaction we had when it mentioned the ‘horror’ of seeing young players develop, seeing the impact it might have had on revenues, and having some discussions with the business people.

    “There came a point where we were almost too big and I lost my willingness to cling to the patience and the approach I thought made us good. I thought we gave in and tried to take the shortcut, and I don’t think there are any shortcuts in baseball. We tried to take a shortcut by throwing money at some problems, and the irony is that led to even more problems.’ ” Theo

     

    Ben has done almost the same thing this off-season, the patient long-term approach was foresaken for building a mediocre but more marketable team.

    "Francona: The Zero Playoff Wins for nearly a Billion Dollars Paid to Me and My loser Players Blaming Others for Our Failures Years"    $19.99 and no refunds

     




     

     

     

    No play off wins?

    You truly are clueless.



    Softlaw is like a slinky.  Generally pretty useless, but always worth a chuckle when pushed down a flight of stairs.
