Tito: 'Not Going To Pasture' In Mistake On Lake

In a press conference today, Terry Francona was officially introduced as the new manager of the Cleveland Indians. The Tribe signed the former Red Sox skipper to a four-year deal. Francona made clear to reporters that he wasn't just taking a more cushy position in media-free Cleveland:

"I didn't come here to go to pasture. I was either going to work here or go back and work at ESPN. I came here because I'm not afraid of a challenge. I thought I was treated very well by the media in Boston. I had no complaints about that—maybe one."

We wish Tito the best of luck in his new position—except when playing the Carmine Hose.
