(NECN: Justin Michaels, Boston) - A new book may rock the red brick of Fenway Park.

Terry Francona, former manager of the Boston Red Sox, co-authored a book with Boston Globe reporter Dan Shaughnessy called 'Francona: The Red Sox Years.'

"He's left a lot of this behind him, but in the year that I had them working together on the book this stuff was very fresh, he is mad at those guys, it didn't end in a good way."

The book focuses on how Red Sox management was focused on the team's image more than building a team, according to Francona.

NECN reporter Justin Michaels has more on the book, which hit shelves Tuesday.
