Francona Era Over in Boston

After meeting with Owner John Henry, President Larry Lucchino and General Manager Theo Epstein, both sides decided it would be best to part ways. With a 7-20 record in September and 9 game wild card lead blown, many thought that this may have been Francona’s final year. He felt that it was time for the clubhouse to hear a new voice, and that during the tough times in September he could not get through to the team like he had in other years. Francona spent 8 seasons in Boston winning 744 games and 2 World Titles.

Became Red Sox Manager in December of 2003.

Francona won World Series Titles in 2004

And 2007.

2-time World Champion baseball card, jersey and all.

September was a tough month, where he felt he lost the team.
