In his goodbye press conference
, Francona said he didn't feel like management was 100 percent behind him during his time here. In an interview with WBZ's Dan Roche on Oct. 5 (one in which he wore a questionable t-shirt), Francona backed off those comments slightly, saying "I didn't feel completely good about myself. I don't want to throw ownership under the bus, that's not quite how I feel. I wasn't happy with what I had done or my inabilities at the end of the year. There were a lot of frustrations on my part."
