Quote to note

"I had numerous guys ask me, 'What's Tito like as a manager?' I'd say, 'I promise you, you'll never want to play for anybody else.' And it's no disrespect to anybody else. That's just the type of person Tito is. Once you play for a guy like Tito, you kind of get spoiled."
-- Infielder Mike Aviles, on Francona
