On Former-Manager Terry Francona
Henry went on the 98.5 The Sports Hub airwaves to clear the air on the “smear campaign” Red Sox ownership was being accused of starting against Francona.
“Blaming me personally for being the person who said those things… that’s why I came here. You’re misleading the public,” Henry said of the accusations he and the rest of the Red Sox brass released information on Francona’s marriage and possible addiction to pain medicine.
“It’s reprehensible that was written about in the first place,” said Henry. “If it’s someone within the team, and that’s what it says in the newspaper, I’m upset about it. And I’ve been upset about it.”
