Rumors Swirl About Francona

The Boston. com story is pointing to this story, which cites anonymous "major leaegue" sources, not Red Sox sources.

UPDATE: Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated says it's done, and Tito is leaving.

UPDATE II: It is still not official, but it is looking more inevitable. Peter Abraham writes:

The decision is coming from the ownership level according to sources. While Epstein was careful to say yesterday that he did not blame Francona, owner John Henry has remained quiet on the subject.

During the team's September collapse, Francona said several times that he had no communication with Henry.
