In Wednesday's Morning Mashup, we have video of Mark Cuban going clubbing (as only Mark Cuban can pull off), reports of Santonio Holmes being out for the season, and reports that Terry Francona is the leading candidate for the Indians managerial opening.
Jim Duquette, who is a former general manager and current analyst for MLB.com, tweeted that the role is Terry Francona's job to lose.
#Indians fans, In case you missed it yesterday, Francona's interview is Friday in Cleveland.Its his job to lose.
@hourigan07 - actually, you're right. His to turn down. And he won't.
It should be noted that former Indians catcher Sandy Alomar Jr. also is interviewing for the position. Either way, after how badly this season went, how quickly would you take Tito back? Yeah, he wasn't fired, but was letting him go one of the biggest miscalculations made by the front office in the last calendar year? Or are you in the minority that thinks Francona had worn out his welcome, players began tuning him out, and it was time to go? DISCUSS.
