There may be a connection between James Dean and Terry Francona today
Red Sox Nation is reeling, and the Boston Red Sox Web site, as well as other sources, are reporting
the probable departure of manager Terry Francona. If this comes to pass in 2011 (now 5772 on the Jewish calendar), and if Francona continues his baseball career, we don’t look for him to add to the nations’ (Red Sox or regular) unemployment statistics. In 2004, he accomplished what no Red Sox manager had since the Babe Ruth days of 1918. Along with Ron Gardenhire, Tony LaRussa, and Jim Leyland, Francona is one of the elite managers in the major leagues….Today also is fifty-six years since the death of James Dean.
