Bill Belichick was asked about Red Sox manager Terry Francona's (potential) ouster this morning, and he was surprised to hear that the longtime manager and the Sox would be parting ways.
"Terry and I are good friends," Belichick said. "But, great manager, Iím sure that there are a lot of people in baseball that would like to have his record, including the championships. Iíll certainly miss his presence in this area. Iím sure weíll be friends and still talk and see each other and so forth. Thatís disappointing, you know, on a personal level because I like Terry.
"As I said, heís certainly had a great record as the manager of the Red Sox. Whatever it was, a hundred and some years without any championships and then they win two of them. That speaks for itself right there."
It was actually 86 years, not over 100, but you see Belichick's point...
