Theo should be fired if he doesn't fir Francona tonight.
Red Sox fans - Aren't you sick of this?
posted at 9/18/2007 10:03 PM EDTNo kidding. The last 3 losses (tonight, Yanks Fri, Yanks Sunday) I would attribute to no one but Francona. He needs to stop rocking back and forth and chewing like a frantic old lady and learn to get off his butt and pull a pitcher. YOU HAVE A DEEP PEN---USE IT. Keep pitchers WARMED.
FRIDAY, Okajima. One pitch to Giambi=home run. Next pitch to Cano=home run. PULL THE PITCHER? Not Terry.
SUNDAY, Schilling. Put him in for the 8th with a pen that deep? Schilling earned his money in 7. USE THE PEN, STOP BABYING THESE GUYS.
TONIGHT: Gagne clearly didn't have it. Should have been pulled after he put two on.
RESULT? Somewhere in NYY, Johnny Damon is smugly preening.

And Tito's contract doesnt get signed until the season is over. He doesnt deserve an extension until he stops making such stupid blunders.
Finally, someone tell Theo that half a season of average pitching doesnt a closer make.
