Closer to a new manager

Francona has Fenway follow-up
By Ian Browne / MLB.com

BOSTON -- Terry Francona continues to pick up steam in his quest to become the 44th manager in Red Sox history.
After meeting with Red Sox principal owner John W. Henry pn Tuesday in Florida, Francona was back at Fenway Park on Wednesday for a follow-up interview with general manager Theo Epstein and some additional club brass.

Francona first interviewed for the position on Nov. 5 at Fenway Park.

Including his meeting with Henry in Florida, Francona has now had three meetings with the Sox.

None of the other candidates has had more than one.


I think Glenn Hoffman might be a little better fit for the BoSox....but it looks like it is Franconas' job to lose....

Yep, looks like Francona is going to get it. B-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Who knows as Joe Torre wasn't the popular choice in NY but it seems like they did whatever they had to do to get Grady out and Schilling in. I'm not so sure that was the best move.
