    You never know with this franchise but it IS the franchise that let Terry Francona leave after managing their AA franchise in Birmingham and hired Jerry Manual to manage in the AL.

    Wow - didn't know that.  Sox really know how to spot talent, don't they ?

    Jerry Manual.  What a waste of managerial space he was.  He actually made Robin look like a managerial brainiac savant.  I recall Joe Frazer loved Jerry Manual.  He'd argue for hours about how awesome he was, while we all were just befuddled.

    Didn't Manual have a bit of success with another team, the Mets maybe?


    I think a worse hire was Terry Bevington. Bev was a dope with fire in his belly, but a dope nevertheless.

    Remember when he went out to change pitchers and had to because it was his second trip, only nobody was warming up. Lol

    I was at that game! He kept calling "Foulke! Foulke!" The guys in the bullpen were like, " WTF?"

    I think even Robin was better.
