Terrence The Tough

Have you noticed that your usually mild-mannered manager of the Boston Red Sox has gone all Patton since the team started losing? First, he dropped the new $140 million man, Carl Crawford, to seventh in the order from his number three perch. Tito thought maybe Craw was "trying to hard"—presumably to justify his high price tag (although the skip held back on that implication). By the way, Crawford responded by getting his first two hits from the seven-hole.

Then, after an 0-10 performance (with 5 strikeouts) from new backstop Jarrod Saltalamacchia, 'Terrence The Tough' opined that Salty is "anxious right now swinging at a lot of first-pitch strikes. He needs to relax..". Hmmm. I kinda like the new tough-talking Tito.
