Here a nice lengthy interview with Terry Francona back in Boston today. The hot topic is the excerpts from his book, like this one:
“They come in with all these ideas about baseball, but I don’t think they love baseball,” Francona said. “I think they like baseball. It’s revenue, and I know that’s their right and their interest because they’re owners … and they’re good owners. But they don’t love the game. It’s still more of a toy or a hobby for them. It’s not their blood. They’re going to come in and out of baseball. It’s different for me. Baseball is my life.”
Tito spends a good portion of this interview squashing rumors that this was his "payback" for the Sox owners doing him wrong at the end.
