Martinez is probably the top dog on the market. Francona is more of a name and has a track record, but he's not a great game manager (much more of a season manager and player manager). I'd still like to see DeMarlo Hale get his shot.
I agree with your sentiment on Francona. I think he's just a product of where he's been. But Sandy Alomar Jr. deserves a shot, and I think he'd be an excellent fit in the city he played - the city he's loved in.
