Tito's the man. After what happened with theo, no way were they going to leave this contract up in the air. I love how laid-back and personable he is. He always looks on the bright side of things, like the WBC being an opportunity to see more of the young guys. He handles difficult situations with genuine sensitivity, causing barely a ripple of discontent in the clubhouse. And he's not shy about the truth, as we can see from this quote from redsox.com:
Wow. That's a really stange visual. Thanks, Tito.
"I was going to the bathroom," Francona said. "Theo walked it in. That's when you got a pretty good relationship. When your general manager can come and hand it to you while you're on the toilet, you got a pretty good relationship."
