Video: Francona on Manny
February, 22, 2012
Former Red Sox manager Terry Francona joins OTL to discuss Manny Ramirez's comeback, some of the tougher moments he faced with the slugger, and what it takes to manage 25 different personalities (including one or two superstars) in a major league clubhouse.
Francona addresses a quote ascribed to him by Peter Gammons: "Manny's the worst human being I've encountered." Tito doesn't fully own up to using those exact words, but he does admit being upset at the 2008 incident involving Manny's mistreatment of Red Sox traveling press secretary Jack McCormick.
