BA names Francona as Manager of the Year


At least one organization thinks that Terry Francona is the 2007 Manager of the Year. Congratulations, Tito! I think it’s a great honor to be chosen by Baseball America, because the people there are so knowledgeable about the sport.

Francona definitely did an incredible job this season. It’s one thing to claw back from a deficit, but it’s also real tough to keep your guys playing hard when you’ve got a 15 game lead in the division. I don’t remember hearing about any real clubhouse issues all season long, and a lot of that is due to Francona’s even keel and handling of the players and management.
