St. Louis Cardinals Unveil Mike Matheny As Manager, Francona Still Without Home

It was rumored that former Red Sox manager Terry Francona was a front runner for the open manager position on the St. Louis Cardinals bench. After parting ways with the Sox, Francona has been one of the names tossed around as a sought out skipper in baseball. Though he did have an interview with the Cards, he was not chosen to lead the team next season. St. Louis instead decided to call upon former catcher Mike Matheny to makes decisions for the club in 2012. 

This is bad news for Francona who dealt with a media nightmare in October when Red Sox players spoke openly about drinking in the club house during games. Terry Francona was the man who led Boston to two World Series rings in a decade and has been one of the top managers for the past seven years.
