  • Francona reinforces belief in club with team meeting

    Indians manager Terry Francona is not big on speeches, but he knows there are times when his voice needs to be heard in the clubhouse. Following Saturday's 5-0 loss to the Blue Jays, marking the seventh defeat in nine games for Cleveland, Francona called a team meeting.

  • Francona being patient with top of lineup

    No one needs to tell Indians manager Terry Francona that the top of his lineup is struggling. Prior to Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Francona admitted that the temptation to switch up the batting order definitely exists.
