Funny, Shecky and I bet last year (6-pack). He's a boston fan. He lost, but I didn't feel good about making him pay (I gave him a pass). I don't really like to bet.

I've had a tradition of betting the lions against the Browns. I haven't heard from the other guy yet this year

Fair enough. We can just talk smack for the next week or so instead!

I'm really shocked that Francona left the Sox. Yeah they collapsed big time, but with all he's done I don't think he should have been pushed out. That team had a lot of problems at the end of the year, and he's saddled with a few older players who perform worse than the Yankees' older players that get passes for nostalgic reasons.

I would love it if the Yankees hired him in some capacity. Wouldn't that be a slap in the face! Although it's going to be even worse if Torre takes their job.

Just changing the color of his sox. From red to white.

I'm really broken up about it. Best thing to happen to Red Sox baseball in a long, long time, possibly ever.

Every other Sox manager in my lifetime I would have personally driven to the airport. But Tito is a class guy and a great manager. He'll be sorely missed, much more so than management seems to think.

If our bench coach, Dave Martinez runs to Chicago for that coaching job, maybe Tito can come here! I'd love that. Dream coaching staff.

Sounds like a demotion, sure, but our former coach Larry Rothschild is now the Yanks pitching coach.

Ah its happened before. But he's probably going to the White Sox. That man deserves a team and he'll get it. I hope the Red sox tank for a few years now. I'd rather your team be our rivals.

If things work out for both our teams, we'll be rivals in about a week! I honestly see us playing Detroit, but all playoff teams are good so crystal ball not clear.
