Francona played professional ball from 1981-90 and managed the Phillies from 1997-2000.
Welcome to SportsNation! On Tuesday, Cleveland Indians manager, and former Boston Red Sox skipper, Terry Francona stops by to chat about the 2013 MLB season, as well as his new book "Francona: The Red Sox Years" that hit stores Tuesday.
Francona took the job with the Indians after managing the Red Sox from 2004-11 and spending the 2012 season as an analyst with ESPN. He ranks second all-time in Red Sox managerial history in wins (744), games (1,296) and win percentage (57.4, minimum 500 games).
In "Francona," co-wrote by the Boston Globe's Dan Shaughnessy, the manager recounts the ups and downs he had with one of the most storied organizations in all of sports. During Francona's time, he turned the once cursed team into a two-time World Series winner. He talks of balancing the personalities in the clubhouse with the expectations of three owners with different opinions.
