Don't look for Terry Francona to be in a major league dugout next season.  The former Boston Red Sox skipper told Comcast SportsNet New England on Wednesday that he is not going to try to manage next season, for his benefit.  Francona had interviewed to replace the retired Tony La Russa as manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, but they hired Mike Matheny [[ mah-THEE-nee ]] this week instead.  Francona added that he's talked to former Red Sox general manager and current Chicago Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein several times about their vacant managerial position, but he doesn't think that's the right fit.  Francona and Boston parted ways last month after the team's September collapse.
