This year's flavor: Fenway Francona

"Rampant unrest in the Nation. A 25-25 record since May Day. Three consecutive series losses. Sitting second in the American League East, nearer to Tampa Bay than New York. The prospect of falling a season-high six games behind the Yankees. Terry Francona getting roasted like a Fenway Frank on the Fourth of July." - Pedro reigns

"Having good players helps. That (meeting) wasn't for anybody's... I don't know how that stuff gets out.. it was a very low key conversation... I really enjoy this group a lot. And we're capable of not playing good baseball, but great baseball." - 6.26: Tito pre-game
