What a horrible end to this season overall. You know most of those players could give a **** about this either. Personally, I think the fans should boycott Fenway next season. Let the players get a taste of that for a while. Bunch a Diva **** ups. All that talent and money. What a waste.

Red Sox are calling this mutual. lol......For some reason he lost control in the last month or maybe before. Who knows, it's over now. Lets hope the cancer players are identified and let go. Francona will forever be an icon in Red Sox Nation and I wish him well where ever he goes.

Peace sells....But Who's Buying?

I have to say-I'm a yankee fan and hate the sox,that said,I thought francona was a great manager.During all those yankee-sox battles I always thought he was at least as good as the "joes" and that always made me nervous.He could manage my team any time-flymank out

Would be Nice to see Joe Torre wearing Red. Make things interesting to say the least.

I was bummed to see Torre go from the Yanks. Tito will be missed. I always thought he was a good guy. Having a hard time understanding these new stories coming in about the Clubhouse Chaos.....not sure whose to blame for what anymore.

Naaah It can be patched up and dewatered. It will float and steer a steady course once again.. Just like the Yankees, Red Sox can buy things too!

News flash for you. The Red Sox will look much the same next year as they did this year.

Drew is gone, Varitek is gone and maybe Ortiz if he won't be reasonable about money and years and that's about it for position players.

Pitching staff is Becket, Lester, Bucholz and Lackey leaving room for one replacement. Wakefield as your 5?

If they got cancer in the clubhouse odds are it's still there next year.

Head-to-head means squat. Fact is the Sox are playing golf and the Yanks are whipping up on the Tigers, and that's all that matters. Head-to-head :laugh:
