    Indians announce Terry Francona as their new manager.

    Hmmm...not sure this is the best of all possible fits for him. I think his talents are best suited to big market teams. But I'm happy for him and wish him well.

    Really? Interesting. I thought he was pretty good on TV. I guess ESPN is just a holding pattern for these manager cast-offs.

    Four thoughts:

    A: The effect of a MLB manager on a team's performance is highly overated. It takes years to build a team and years to trash a team. The Red Sox 2012 performance was put together for years. Valentine just added some rodeo clowns to the collapse.

    B:
    Boston hired Valentine, 62, last December following the fallout of the 2011 season, when the Red Sox collapsed down in September and missed the postseason.
    Agin this should not be a shocker to anyone

    C: It is never a good thing when you allow the press and fans to runa player and or a coach/manager off the team. In fact it is a really, really, really, bad thing.

    Your point A starts off OK but the rest of the post kinda devolves after that. Plus how do you follow the lead in "Four thoughts" with points A, B, and C?
