    I'd bet the farm Francona ends up managing the Tribe.
    San Francisco Giants, World Series Champions in 2010, 2012, and 2014!!!

      That would be interesting. I'd love to have him.

        I think Francona is the exact opposite of what Cleveland needs right now. They have enough young kids that could use a "kick in the butt" type manager to get things going. Francona certainly isn't that, in fact he's only been really successful surrounded by high-dollar star players.

          Could it be that Mr. Acta has a contract which kicks in for next year if he finishes 2012? That would make sense for a penurious club like Cleveland.

            He did have a 2013 club option

              Our problem isn't undisciplined players though. Our problem is a lack of talent, period. We trade away all of our developed talent and then, on a fluke of a season, we have a chance to make the playoffs and trade away our farm for a "flash-in-the-pan" pitcher (Ubaldo Jimenez). Now we have little talent coming up in the farm and little talent on the team itself. We need new owners.

              It has always baffled me why the Dolan's do not invest more in the team when it is a proven fact that if we have a good team, the stands will fill. Look at Dick Jacobs...He spent money on a winning team and was met with 455 consecutive sell out games.

                Ken Rosenthal is reporting that Francona will interview for the Cleveland job.
                They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

                  Om today's Indians broadcast Tom Hamilton said that it will probably be between Terry Francona and Sandy Alomar Jr. If they are the only two candidates I hope Francona gets it.

                    That isn't a good fit.
