Tito: Banning beer a 'P.R. move' Bobby V.: How is it P.R.?

Appearing on ESPN Radio's Mike and Mike in the Morning, former Red Sox manager Terry Francona called the Red Sox banning of alcohol in the clubhouse a PR move.

"I think if a guy wants a beer, he can probably get one, said Francona. "I don't think it's a surprise that they put this in effect, or the fact they announced it. It's probably more of a PR move just because the Red Sox took such a beating at the end of the year."

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine announced the new policy Saturday afternoon, receiving support from Red Sox DH David Ortiz.

"We're not here to drink," said Ortiz. "We're here to play baseball. It ain't a bar."
