Thats pretty awesome, but there seems to be NO stability as a manager these days.

Can someone clarify: Ozzie was under contract through this year, right? Two year deal? So he had a two year option? That doesn't seem normal, usually it's a one year option, at least for players. But regardless, I'm happy about it, even if I don't think he should have pulled Fingernails on a blackboard after 5.1 innings and 80 pitches yesterday afternoon.

I wish I could say something, but all he does is win this year, and most of my gripes from last season have disappeared. I.e. Manuelesque lineup changes, Gload in RF, and the amount of calling out his own players.

Up until yesterday, I've agreed with his bullpen usage. I like when he mouths off to someone OUTSIDE the organization, or to someone who's actually trying to talk smack about our organization. I like that Shingo was gone so soon, that we stopped playing like pansies, and that he seems to fully understand the importance of rivalries to the fans.

These all seem like simple requests... but after Manuel we have to actual ASk for these kind of things.

Yeah but at least he can't leave without us having a say in it. Good move by the Sox... easy move by the Sox

Only Ozzie could make a profanity-laced tirade and be rewarded with a one year extension of his stint.

But I'm not complaining, he deserves it based on the start he's had so far.

It was a one year option. They picked that up and then they extended it a year.
