The Sox didn’t pick up Francona’s contract. All the bellyachers who crawled out of the woodwork with half-baked ideas about the crash will have their human sacrafice they screamed for. As a Mets fan I can’t sympathize because they were out early in the season. They had a good run at the pennant and they collapsed. Quit whining. The only thing that stinks is they were eliminated by the Orioles. Oh yeah, Yankee fans don’t gloat the Rays are just warming up.
