You Have to Give Credit to Tito
Terry Francona treated the All-Star game at Yankee Stadium with great respect for the fans and the city.
He removed A-Rod in the middle of an inning so he could get fan recognition, and then did the same for Jeter. He brought in Mariano Rivera after Frankie Rodriguez got an out so that he could get the huge ovation, and it would be televised.
He did everything right. I've never really had a problem with Francona - people tend to think all Yankee fans hate anything Red Sox related, but Francona has never been anything but classy.
It's his catcher, closer, injured big mouthed starter, non-injured big mouthed starter, and left fielder with whom everyone has the problem.
