I didn't know this was coming, we just happened to have the MLB Network on when it started, so I recorded it and watched it all, just before bed

https://www.mlb.com/news/tito-the-terry-francona-story-documentary-on-mlb-network

Heck of a great look at Tito and his life and career in baseball. I've always been a fan of Tito, but this really takes it to another level. I suggest watching if you are able

Mods, feel free to move to Omar, or wherever you see fit. I figured it would get more eyeballs here

I am a bit surprised that Schilling was so prominent given all we have seen about him. But he and Tito go waay back so I guess that makes sense.

I also could use less "CHBmess".

I could not see all of it last night, so I am looking for a rebroadcast time.

I only watched some of it, will definitely watch the rest. There are some bathroom humor segments I could have done without. Other than that, great so far. As far as Shaughnessy bits, most of the rest of the country won't know who he is, so not a problem? I mean, he speaks well of Tito, doesn't he?

Schilling looks like an old man. That surprised me a bit

Battling cancer and helping your spouse survive two separate battles will take it's toll as well.
No doubt.

The things he can control he has blown up. He has made some seriously bad choices and continues to do so.

That's what happens when you go full Sith.

Just got around to watching this. Schilling seems like someone who has all the elements of being a great guy (seriously). It makes me all the sadder for what he's become.

Also, I love Terry Francona.
