Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona, left, speaks as general manager Theo Epstein listens during a news conference at Fenway Park in Boston, Thursday, Sept. 29, 2011, one day after the Red Sox failed to make the baseball playoffs. Epstein said he won't make a scapegoat of Francona after the team's unprecedented September collapse, and that everyone will be evaluated this offseason, including the manager and GM. But he said "nobody blames" the team's 7-20 in the final month on Francona. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola) less
