If Terry Francona becomes available, which according to multiply sources seems likely, would you want him as the Cubs new manager?
In eight seasons with Boston he’s 192-games above .500 at (744-552). His team never finished with less than 86 wins (2006) or lower than third in the tough AL East.
His run also entails breaking Boston’s perceived curse with 2 pennants and 2 World Series championships, albeit with one of the league’s highest payrolls.
But if Tom Ricketts truly wants to bring a World Series winner to the North Side, and is willing to pay for it similar to Boston, is there a better candidate than Tito?
Francona may be tired of Boston’s oppressing fan fare, but he’s handled it with professionalism and poise throughout. Chicago would be no different.
And if given a roster that can win, Francona’s track record proves he’s capable as any to lead the Cubs to the promise land.
Introducing new Cubs manager, Terry–Tito–Francona! Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
