DateQuestionAnswer
2013-10-28 18:00:00 (link to chat)If you needed to manage one game for your life and Joe Maddon couldn't be reached, who would your next three calls be to? The internet bashes every manager into oblivion, but other than Maddon, it seems they seldom get any credit. Then again, Don Mattingly makes me want to bang my head against the wall.
(Connie Mack Daddy from Oz)
Can I go back in time? I don't bash managers, but it is hard to differentiate between them because so many of them employ the same tactics and have the same kind of group think. John Farrell would be on my list as long as he doesn't have to play with National League rules; him batting Brandon Workman in the ninth inning of Game 3 was maddening. Terry Francona still strikes me as a really strong manager who I'd put at the top of my short list. I'm having a hard time coming up with a third manager that I love. Joe Girardi is probably underrated because of the Yankees huge payroll, but he did a lot this year despite limited resources for the first time in his tenure. (Mike Gianella)
2013-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)What round should I take Kazmir in?
(Rich from San Francisco)
Quote of the year so far was from Terry Francona this morning: Kazmir "has looked so good it's scary." So it's a good question how much weight to put on that statement. Before that quote, Kazmir would be maybe the 600th pitcher you'd take. Now 350th? I mean, a really really deep league. The benefit he has is that he'll get a shot at it. But it was only a few months ago that he was a sub-average indy leaguer, and it was a *long* time ago that he was fantasy viable even in a 20-team Angels-only league. (Sam Miller)
2013-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What team do you believe will be the surprise of 2013?
(Alex from Anaheim)
Thanks for your question, Alex. How is the OC today? Two teams come to mind immediately, but keep in mind that there is a lot of roster building still to do between now and Opening Day. I think Terry Francona will immediately impact the Indians, as i respect him immensely - they'll be better. I also believe the Twins will make a lot of improvement in 2013, and they have too much core talent to have another year like 2013, plus I think Ron Gardenhire is outstanding. In another 30 days, we might have another team or two to discuss. (Dan Evans)
2012-10-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Apparently Terry Francona has an "out" clause in his contract if the current Cleveland Indians front office is removed while he's manager. Is that unlikely, outside of an ownership change, with Mark Shapiro being Team President?
(jlarsen from chicago)
I think if at some point the Indians don't actually win something the front office will get cleaned out. I don't know how much longer they have to do that, though. (Colin Wyers)
2011-09-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who will be your vote for the AL Manager of the Year? Also, will Mike Napoli be eligible for the ALDS after his kiss to the Angel dugout in the season's last game incites a brawl? :-)
(jhardman from Apex, NC)
Good question. A few weeks ago I'd have said Terry Francona, but his stubborn refusal to move Lackey out of the rotation and stretch Aceves out is one of the main factors in the team's slide.

I think Jim Leyland might be a good choice given that you really have to squint to figure out how Detroit has gotten to the top of the AL Central given all of their injuries and roster mismatches. That's also a credit to Dave Dombrowski, whose acquisitions of Wilson Betemit and Doug Fister have really helped. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-04-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Steven. After the Red Sox cut Daniel Bard, Jon Lester, John Lackey, Carl Crawford, and fire Terry Francona they can still win 140 games and win the World Series, right?
(mattymatty2000 from Portland, OR)
The panic in Boston is as exaggerated as this question, and I'm sure that if an angel sent Lot into the city to find 20 good men who weren't panicked by an early sweep, he would easily fulfill his quota and spare Beantown a hail of brimstone. The Red Sox are still the class of the league. Some champions go wire-to-wire, some don't. That's all it is. (Steven Goldman)
2010-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)In much the same way that King Felix deserves the AL Cy Young award, does Terry Francona deserve the AL Manager of the Year award?
(Cambridge from Cambridge)
In that he's been let down by his supporting cast, but still turned in a good season? I guess so, if you absolve him of any blame for the injuries. But if we're using that framework, doesn't Ron Gardenhire come out smelling even rosier? Honestly, since we can't really isolate a manager's performance, I don't know who deserved the MotY award. It's a stab in the dark. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-05-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)When do the Sox fire the pitching coach? Half the team are walking more and striking out fewer guys than they have in their career. Beckett and Lackey, the guys who are supposed to be the difference for the Sox, have been mediocre. The enormous strength of last year, the pen, is a snake pit now.
(Carl from Boston)
All indications are that John Farrell is safe, rightly or wrongly. He is held in extremely high esteem by Theo Epstein, Terry Francona and ownership. (John Perrotto)
2009-10-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)Acta or Valentine?
(buffum from Austin TX)
Acta. He's the next Terry Francona. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Why all the BP love for Manny Acta? I know the Nats roster has been a disaster but his lineups and in-game moves were often suspect and he didn't appear to be a great motivator. He doesn't deserve a complete free pass for the last couple seasons.
(TimV from DC)
You're right, no he doesn't, but the experience combined with the tactical acumen does suggest that he's going to be an interesting candidate for giving another opportunity to. At the time Acta was fired, I brought up Terry Francona as an example of a skipper whose first-time failure didn't seem to suggest he'd be back either, but the man the Red Sox hired hadn't sat still from his days with the Phillies. People can learn from bad experiences as well as good. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-03-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it safe to say that the bottom of the ninth inning of the 2004 ALCS was one of the great turning points in Yankees history? The greatest closer of all-time, Mariano Rivera, is facing the bottom of the Red Sox order just three outs away from completing a crushing 4 game sweep of their arch rivals. If he closes the deal, the Yanks displatch the Cardinals with relative ease, A-Rod becomes a god in NY, Terry Francona is fired, and the revitalized Yankee juggernaut lords over the shell-shocked A.L. for the next fours years. Or Rivera walks Kevin Millar and...
(rich from nj)
It's certainly a big one. There was a subtle change after that, too, that was harder to see - we pointed it out in Mind Game (still a damn fine book, forgive me for saying so) -- the "patient" Yankees went to hacking after that game. Their selectivity just went out the window. (Steven Goldman)
2008-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)(No need to post this: just FYI) Will, here's why I asked what I did. Josh Beckett has stated clearly that he's not injured. Terry Francona had supported him, saying that the oblique strain was better. Tom Verducci of SI wrote that it was a tear, not a strain. Now Terry Francona says that Beckett is suffering from a strain, contradicting his earlier position supporting Beckett. Pardon that this "isn't much of a question," but I'm getting three different stories from three different sources. I'm happy to hear that you support Terry Francona's latest position--that's important information from this fan's perspective.
(JayhawkBill from Farmville, VA)
Well, a tear IS a strain, so I'm guessing Tom is really trying to say "It's a Grade I, not a II or III" in simpler terms. When players say they're "not injured" I seldom believe them. This is analagous to Tony Romo -- if he can play, is he injured? Sure, the hand is broken, but he can play so ... semantics. (Will Carroll)
2008-10-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, Curious what you think of the concept of managerial slumps. Hitters slump, pitchers slump, fielders slump, why can't managers? I'm a HUGE Terry Francona guy but I think he's had a lousy post-season, do managers slump or am I just overreacting to some subpar performances by players?
(Joe from Tewksbury, MA)
I don't know if I buy "slump." I think managers make bad decisions, because no one's perfect, and we're often dealing with incomplete information. And I'm with you...Tito hasn't had a great October. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-06-20 13:30:00 (link to chat)You have he choice of any current GM and any current manager to start a team with. Who do you pick?
(jamin67038 from Wichita, KS)
Theo Epstein and Terry Francona. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Am I "mis-remembering" or do I recall that a Yankee manager (Martin?) sent up Mike Pagliarulo to bat right-handed in Detroit against a tough lefty...and he struck out swinging.
(Arnold Layne from Cambridge)
He did, and it was a bad idea in that it was done in a high-leverage situation, but most tellings of the story make it sound as if Martin tried this completely at random, as if, say, Terry Francona walked up to Josh Beckett this morning and said, "In today's game you're going to throw knuckleballs, left-handed." Martin had seen Pagliarulo switch-hitting in batting practice and thought he looked good enough to try it in a game. Thus it was in some senses a planned experiment, or planned to the extent that Martin was capable of planning... Thinking about that, if Martin was Joba's manager, they wouldn't have had the Joba Rules. They would have needed the Joba Shackles, with Martin bound and held at gunpoint to keep him from breaking them. Similarly, he would have gone from the bullpen to 150 pitches overnight, not been built up over a month. (Steven Goldman)
