A.L. Central Update

August 16, 2016

Despite a tough loss at home vs the Boston Red Sox yesterday, the Cleveland Indians maintained their 5 game lead in the A.L. Central.

This is due to the fact, the all but out of contention, World champion and two time defending American League champion, Kansas City Royals handed the second place Detroit Tigers a home loss last night.

Watching Indians manager, Terry Francona in the dugout yesterday in the game vs the Red Sox, his former team evoked some thoughts and facts.

One is that Francona, who guided the Red Sox to two titles, including their first in 86 years, is one of only six current managers to guide a World Series winner.

Francona and Bruce Bochy the current San Francisco Giants manager, who has three, are the only current managers with more than one World Series win as a manager. More in the next post.
