CHICAGO -- Terry Francona is on the verge of ending another long World Series drought. Cowboys Jersesys Outlet .Call him Mgr. October.Clevelands maestro of a manager, who has pushed all the right buttons this season and especially over the past few weeks, moved closer to capturing his third Series title as the Indians beat the Chicago Cubs 7-2 in Game 4 on Saturday night to take a 3-1 lead.Francona is the one who guided the Boston Red Sox around the Curse of the Bambino in 2004, helping them to their first title in 86 years. He led them to another three years later.And now hes got the resilient Indians on the edge of taking their first World Series in 68 years.The 57-year-old would never take any credit for Clevelands success, but the Indians wouldnt be where they are if not for Francona, who improved to 11-1 in World Series games.The guy everyone calls Tito -- his dads name -- claims he doesnt have a crystal ball. But he certainly seems to have a sixth sense when it comes to setting his lineup, pulling pitchers at just the right time and keeping his players focused.Following Clevelands 1-0 victory in Game 3, a chess match with Chicagos Joe Maddon which he called one of the most agonizing games of his managerial career, Francona made the difficult decision of not starting first baseman Mike Napoli in Game 4.Hes like the heart and soul of our team, Francona said beforehand. It bothers me to sit him, a lot.Francona played Carlos Santana at first instead, and the move panned out when he homered leading off the second inning against John Lackey. Francona has been forced to be creative with his lineup during the three games at Wrigley Field, where the Indians have had to play by National League rules and couldnt use their designated hitter.He took a risk by starting Santana in left field for Game 3 even though the former catcher had played just four innings in his career in left. It worked, though, as Santana caught the only ball hit his way on a night when the wind was blowing out in Wrigley.That was probably the funnest moment of the game, Francona said of Santanas catch in the first. I was going crazy in the dugout. Then I thought I better cool it because there might be another one that finds him.None did, and Francona made several more astute moves in the first Series game at Wrigley in 71 years. He pulled starter Josh Tomlin in the fifth and ace reliever Andrew Miller came in and shut down the Cubs. And when Millers turn came up to bat, Francona sent in pinch-hitter Coco Crisp, who drove in the games only run.Of course he did.Francona also got a little lucky.He made so many double switches that he ran out of position players, and was going to have to bat Game 4 starter Corey Kluber.He almost used some guys that werent on the roster, joked Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway. I mean, theres no better manager in all of baseball than him. He thinks of everything at every moment. Ive learned so much from him. Its fun to watch him do it during the game. Hes gonna use everyone in the right situation to have the most success they can possibly have, and youre seeing the results of it.Francona knew just what to do with Kluber on Saturday night.Miller was throwing in the bullpen when Anthony Rizzo doubled leading off the sixth. Miller, who has been virtually unhittable in the postseason, was ready but Francona stayed with Kluber and he promptly retired the next three batters.Its been like that all month as the Indians, who have been overlooked despite running away with the AL Central, swept Boston, beat Toronto in five games and are now a win away from their first title since 1948.That Cleveland team was managed by Lou Boudreau, who was also the clubs starting shortstop.Francona laughed before Game 4 when he was asked if he was ready to play short.Im just trying to handle managing, he said. That will be enough.Its been more than that. Cedrick Wilson Jr. Jersey . Dusautoir, the former World Player of the Year, sustained a torn bicep playing for Toulouse in the Heineken Cup on Saturday. The flanker, who has played 65 times for France, is expected to be out for up to four months. Discount Cowboys Jersesys .Y. - General manager Billy King says the Brooklyn Nets are looking to add a big man and confirmed the team worked out centre Jason Collins, who would become the first openly gay active NBA player if signed. http://www.dallascowboysjerseyscheap.co ... on-jersey/ . Despite dominating possession, Schalke needed an own goal from Nicolas Hoefler for the breakthrough a minute before the interval. The Freiburg midfielder misjudged Jefferson Farfans corner and bundled the ball into his own net. Ruckman Ivan Maric says hes a Richmond AFL player as long as the Tigers want him.A dip in form that has limited him to just three senior games this season couldnt have come at a worse time with the 30-year-old off contract at the Tigers.Retired three-time premiership player Brian Lake last week predicted that Maric would be part of a Richmond list clean-out, citing his lack of mobility as a factor.Maric said he was leaving negotiations to his manager but believed he would continue at the club, which he joined ahead of the 2012 season from Adelaide.Theyve indicated to me that theyre happy with me at the club, he said.I know that the 3-0 next to my name can influence things but thats just the way it goes.Ive got so much fight in me and the body feels awesomee. Dallas Cowboys Jerseys. My body feels great so bring on another pre-season, no worries.Maric conceded it had been a difficult season, which started with a back injury handing Shaun Hampson the ruck role which he hasnt surrendered.But Maric was philosophical about how it had panned out.Thats life - its not always going to be easy, he said.Shauns worked so hard for it for a number of years so its fantastic to see how well hes going and he deserves it.Maric said he still loved the game whether he was playing in the AFL or VFL.The game is the same and expectations are high for me.Im playing footy every week and Im not complaining and I wont.
