    Cherington refused to talk about Valentine other than to say, "We'll talk about it after the season."

    Contract extension announced tomorrow!
    Oh okay my bad. Still i find experience overrated. It's more of the fit within the context (in baseball that would be the city and current state of the given team) that matters to me.

    Not many people can handle the Boston media. I think the Boston media is a disgrace though. They need to focus a little more on baseball and less on trying to screw with people's lives. Francona is living testament to how terrible the media in Boston is.

    Torre was known as a pretty good guy. Mediocre record with St. Louis, good job in Atlanta from what I remember, play-off team in 82' I think, IIRC.

    He wasn't really well received initially by the media in NY, just going from memory. Steinbrenner was always quick with wanting to can his managers, so I doubt anyone figured he would last as long as he did....funny how success changes peoples opinions....

    I personally liked Joe.....

    Wow. Id really hope this is over with ASAP. By the end of the playoffs i want BC to be able to focus on the physical team; not the manager situation.

    Still too soon for Varitek if you ask me.

    NO!

    LL fed the media the stories about Francona and they did what they are paid to do. Some people don't like freedom of speech, but if you don't know how it works? Or the laws that support it?

    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    Tek is not near seasoned enough for this job in this city - not even 25% of the way there.

    Cherington did not name any candidates. Lucchino said that MLB experience, unlike last season, is not being stressed.

    I want the Red Sox to hire someone who can wipe the slate. All new coaches. I'm tired of people saying the players need to be reminded of the good times. Why do we continue to coddle? Hire someone like ausmus. Let him hire a new staff and bite the bullet. Part of the big problem with bobby was that we forced a coaching staff on him. I want Ben and his new manager to have free reign to build something new

    3rd Base Coach: Jose Canseco
    Hitting Coach: Mark McGwire

    There goes Lucchino again..... Why doesn't he just let BC do the job he is paid to do, and stay out of on field affairs? The puppet master..............

    BV was out of baseball for a decade, he really had no circle of coaches to go to, or have "his" coaches, and he just seems/seemed like a know it all anyway, so it was doomed for conception.

    I do agree that BC should be allowed to hire his guy and tell LL to stay the hell off the field.............
