Oh No He Di’int! Terry Francona Said He Likes Fenway Better Than Wrigley

With the Chicago Cubs preparing to play their first game in the historic Fenway Park since the 1918 World Series, the question was asked of Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona inquiring about his feelings towards the two legendary ballparks and which one he preferred (via Chicago Breaking Sports):

“I always liked Fenway a little bit better,” he said. “The dugouts at Wrigley make it really hard to watch a game. You’re really stuck in there. I love Wrigley, because I think all the new ballparks are trying to get the feeling of Fenway and Wrigley, just with the new amenities, but I’ve always liked Fenway better.”

Terry Francona, with all due respect – with ALL due respect – how dare you besmirch the good name of Wrigley Field? I mean, who does this guy think he is? Ozzie Guillen? Can you believe that the manager of the Red Sox, who play their home games at Fenway Park, would go out of his way to praise the ballpark which his team plays 81 games in every season and say it is superior to one of the most hallowed sites in major league baseball? Where does this guy get off saying he likes Fenway Park better? Man, that’s kooky talk. It just doesn’t add up.
