Red Sox | Starting to doubt skipper?

Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona has a two-year option for more than $8 million, which seemed to be a cinch to be exercised. However, after the team's recent collapse, sources say some of upper management question whether Francona is aggressive enough with his players. Some suggest that SPs Josh Beckett, Jon Lester and John Lackey have formed a clique that may sometimes include C Jason Varitek but few others. There is also some upset over Beckett declining to pitch to anyone but Varitek. The other issue is that a few players don't appear to be in top shape.
