George King reports:
The Post has learned Bob Watson entered the Red Sox dugout during last night’s game to talk to Terry Francona about not wearing a uniform jersey while managing. Francona opts for a red pullover, which is sanctioned by MLB properties.
Upon seeing baseball’s top cop, who was ushered into the dugout by an MLB resident security agent, Francona snapped at Watson.
"Get out of the dugout during the game," Francona firmly told Watson, who left.
There’s a long and documented history of former Yankee general manager Watson showing he still bleeds pinstripes — even in his current job. I’m not all about the conspiracy theories, but Watson makes it pretty easy to believe he has some biases he hasn’t quite resolved. Showing up in a dugout during a game at Yankee Stadium to talk about uniform jerseys and pullovers? Get real.
It’s time to end Bob Watson’s tortured tenure as baseball’s inconsistent, combative disciplinarian.
