Terry Francona, Theo Epstein Not Ready to Discuss Respective Futures With Red Sox


There has been plenty of finger-pointing all month in regards to an epic September collapse for the Red Sox that left them on the outside looking in when it comes to the playoffs. Many of those fingers — right or wrong — have been pointed at general manager Theo Epstein and manager Terry Francona.

The two held their end-of-the-year news conference on Thursday afternoon at Fenway Park, and both were asked about their futures with the ballclub. Francona's future is a bit uncertain, as his option for the 2012 season hasn't been picked up yet by the team, and Epstein was mentioned in connection with the Cubs during the season.

However, neither Francona nor Epstein were ready to discuss their future with the club on Thursday when meeting with the media. They both said that those conversations will be held in later days as they try to figure out what went wrong for the Sox this season and what the best solution will be going forward.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
