Two World Series victories in four years. his teams have made the play offs all but once in his 5 year tenure. But, Terry Francona still struggles in the minds of Red Sox nation as a top manager. it took the red Sox a long time to give Terry "big money". The fans do not seem to warm up to the congenial and sometimes glib Sox manager. But, who cares. You can not deny it! Terry Francona can no longer be identified as FRACOMA! This Sox team was built around one of the best managers in Red Sox history. he is in my mind a manager who relates well to the veteran and younger players. He sits well amongst his peers over a period of more than 100 years of Sox History!
