An interview with Terry Francona
Red Sox manager prepares for Game 6 after dramatic victory
How happy are you to be back in Tampa?TERRY FRANCONA: Well, it beats the alternative. Yeah, as long as we're playing baseball, something is going right. So we're thrilled to be here. Now, saying that, we have a job to do. Can you talk a little bit about Coco? It seemed like last year we had a reverse situation where Ellsbury took Coco's job and how Coco is coming in and becoming the starter. TERRY FRANCONA: Yeah, it's kind of weird sometimes the way things work. We tried all year not to let one of them sit very long because both of them are too valuable to ever have somebody sit for a very long time.
