Terry Francona: Reviews?

With Tim McCarver out because of a medical procedure that's scary enough to prevent me making fun of him for the next five minutes, the FOX suits went with former Red Sox manager Terry Francona as the person who sits along side Joe Buck and a) makes insightful comments, and b) pokes Buck with a stick to wake him up between pitches. So how is Francona doing?

Francona has great knowledge and insight, but his love of the game is infectious. His enthusiasm sets him apart.

 Sounds good. Is there a second opinion?

 

Terry Francona: "I want to chew and I want to be able to curse at will and I can't do either." Tito has been great so far.

Well, say, everyone's agog. What about the New York media?

Inexperienced Terry Francona might boost Fox ratings, but move is insult to fans

Wow! Way to take a stand! That comes from this article. Which was written before the game. Which is only slightly pointless and insane. Counterpoint to the article:
