This may work out in the Cubs favor though. With as much money as the Red Sox have spent payroll wise, and then just flat choking down the stretch, someone has got to lose their job over there. Francona? Would hire him in a second. Epstein? Ditto. How about BOTH. They broke the "curse" of the Bambino. Think they can break another one?
I know...I don't believe in curses either, but, I think Francona, if dumped, may just have moved to the top of the managers list...if Quade IS, in fact, canned.
