Or maybe he's right to be bitter about it?Here comes something that will be very unpopular, and I will accept my beatings.... Anyone but the Indians. I have really soured on Francona the last few years, like everyone here I was devastated when he was let go in '11. I am a Sox fan living in Northeast Ohio, last year my and I saw Francona at an autograph signing. When we got up to him, I said I am a Red Sox fan and I just wanted to thank you for 2004 and 2007. He said nothing to me, stared at me and we moved on.
I feel he is beyond bitter still how it ended and I know the Hohler piece doesn't help. I feel he enjoys it here because there is no pressure whatsoever to win.
As a Sox fan living here, when the Yankees play the Indians, I pull for the Yankees. I have a friend that is a Yankees fan that pulls for the Sox when they play the Indians. I know its crazy.
You seem to have chosen the Management side. Which is fine, but it's a choice.
