Above all in the eyes of Boston Red Sox fans Terry Francona will always be a hero. The Cleveland Indians manager broke all curses when he led the Bosox to World Series titles in 2004 and 2007. Francona will once again return to Fenway Park with a good Cleveland team. In fact, the Tribe is favored with MLB game lines to win the American League Central. By contrast the defending World Series champion Red Sox have had a hangover. Worse yet Boston has been drowning gamblers in red ink. Few teams have been a worse value on the baseball board.
