Since he’s been with the Indians, Terry Francona has seen nothing but success: two playoff appearances, two Manager of the Year awards, and four-straight winning seasons. As the 2017 season gets ramped up, he’s looking to extend all of those accolades.
Tito sat down with Ray Horner during Wahoo Week in Goodyear, Arizona, to not only talk about the current team, but also a little about him. Many years ago, Francona played with the Montreal Expos, and an injury to his knee paved the way for Tim “Rock” Raines to have a hall-of-fame career.
Horner and Francona also discussed other aspects of the game that have changed through expanded analytics, as well as the up-and-coming prospects in the organization, like Yandy Diaz.
