Fall out from Wednesday. Ken Rosenthal has the story, though he's careful to say Francona is expected to be let tomorrow and it's not yet official.

If you read between the lines, this sounds like ownership going around a general manager and making the move themselves. I wonder how that'll play.

If Tito's really out I could see Bobby V replacing him as the manager. Edit: Suntimes says Tito wants out http://www.suntimes.com/sports/baseball/whitesox/7952063-419/tito-wants-out-of-beantown.html

Insane Scenario #1: Theo Epstein and Terry Francona wind up with the Cubs. They bring Chicago a World Series title nearly ten years after bringing Boston a title. They become Baseball Gods.

Insane Scenario #2: Theo Epstein winds up with the Cubs. Terry Francona winds up with the White Sox. Cubs/White Sox World Series happens. World repents before apocalypse.

Tito's an idiot, but by embracing management's philosophy of basically never bunting or issuing intentional walks, he found himself as one of the best managers in baseball. Hopefully whoever gets brought in is similarly accommodating.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the Sox bring in someone similar to Francona, who either had one failed run as a manager or has no experience above coaching. Just spitballing, here, but perhaps they'd be interested in Tony Pena?

Wait, Reagins is OUT?

Screw the Cubs! Bring Theo to Anaheim!

Francona will be a welcome addition to the Cubbies or the White Sox.

Wish granted, but the Red Sox are duct-taping John Lackey to Theo on his way out the door. Return postage will be Mike Trout, Peter Bourjos and (if Ortiz is gone) Kendrys Morales.

Larusa's contract is up at the end of this season (and seeing how they folded in todays game, that might be SOON). I could see Francona coming to ST Louis.

I thought it was supposed to have been open in time for this year. Of course, if you believe everything you hear about ballparks the Mets new "Ebbetts Field II" would be open too...
