Best of luck to Tito and the Tribe

When the Red Sox came apart last year, I called for the Theo Epstein/Terry Francona pairing to be transplanted into Chicago. What I got instead was the proverbial half a loaf: Epstein, with all of his cohorts, but not Francona. And the results haven’t been great, so far.

But the Cleveland Indians have hired Francona as their new manager, and I wish them the best. Cleveland loves their baseball team, and they desrve something to cheer about.

Having been to a game in Cleveland this past season, I can say that attendance woes are something that will have to be addressed. And the way to do that is to win. But Francona has done that once before, and hopefully he can again. Here’s wishing him the best.
