Terry Francona is now the former manager of the Boston Red Sox and its unclear where he will end up next.  When all is said and done, Francona led the Red Sox to two World Series championships and should go down as one the best field generals that the organization has ever had. In light of the unfortunate circus atmosphere surrounding Francona’s departure; drinking and chicken eating, the Laconia Muskrats are at least attempting to keep things a little less serious.  The Muskrats are offering Francona a full-time job coaching their collegiate summer team. That is if he accepts the $6,000 a year deal!  Included in the package, owner and general manager Noah Crane has included the following benefits;  a parking spot 25 percent off at a burrito restaurant a free gym membership 25 tokens to an area arcade I’m not sure that is going to bring Francona over to New Hampshire, but it was worth a shot.  For more info on the Laconia Muskrats, visit their site here.
