  • Tribe considering new third-base option in Headley

  • Broadcaster Hamilton talks all things Tribe talked with Tom Hamilton, who just wrapped up his 25th season in the broadcast booth with the Indians, about his book, the 1990s and what's ahead for the Tribe.

  • Indians have knack for predicting future performance

  • Hector Santiago accepts dare, surprises Terry Francona with kiss (Big League Stew)

    The MLB All-Stars are in the home stretch of a nearly two-week tour in Japan. All that remains is one final exhibition game against Team Japan to be played early Thursday morning in Okinawa. After that game, the MLB All-Stars will board a plane to make the long flight back across the pond to the United States, and one can only assume assistant coach — and Cleveland Indians skipper — Terry Francona will be on high alert. That's because on the team's flight to Okinawa, Francona was the subject of a dare that Los Angeles Angels reliever Hector Santiago fearlessly accepted and carried out in front on his teammates. The mission: Kiss Terry Francona's bald head while he's catching a few zzz's and face the potential consequences. Here's the result, as captured and posted to Santiago's Instagram account. Not only did Santiago live through the experience, everything about it was priceless. From Santiago's casual glance at the camera and walk back to his seat, to Francona cracking a smile once the moment sank in. Also, check out all the people well in the background who were obviously in on the dare as they attempt to catch a glimpse. It's tremendous. All of it. It shows once again that there really is nothing better than team bonding on long baseball road trips.    More MLB coverage from Yahoo Sports: - - - - - - - Mark Townsend is a writer for Big League Stew on Yahoo Sports.
