DEVELOPING: Francona Done In Boston

According to reports from multiple sources, Terry Francona is out as the manager of the Boston Red Sox. The club decided not to pick up the option years on his contract for the 2012 and 2013 seasons.

The team did the same when Grady Little was caught up in the Pedro Martinez fiasco from earlier in the decade, so this is no real surprise considering the franchise dynamic.

Look for Francona to be a top candidate for both the Cubs and White Sox openings- remember, the Cubs are looking for a big splash and Francona was in the White Sox system in the past.

Francona has become disenchanted with the team chemistry recently, and losing 16 of your last 21 will do that...
