While We’re Waiting serves as the early morning gathering of WFNY-esque information for your viewing pleasure. Have something you think we should see? Send it to our tips email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Terry Francona must REALLY like and respect his news bosses:Francona probably strengthened his case with his presentation: Before his interview, he sent the Indians a 16-page breakdown of their team, their organization and what he sees in their future, and the response had been very positive. The Indians wanted Francona, and Francona wanted the Indians.And there are a lot of people around who believe that he’s crazy to take the Cleveland job, and that if he had waited until next season, some much better opportunity for success would’ve presented itself to him. Maybe in Texas, where Ron Washington’s job status will become the subject of much speculation next summer if the Texas Rangers struggle early, or in Anaheim, if the Los Angeles Angels get off to a bad start. These are just...

From the Cleveland Indians media relations team;
CLEVELAND, OH - The Cleveland Indians and Executive Vice President & General Manager Chris Antonetti today announced that the club has named TERRY FRANCONA Major League Manager, agreeing to terms on a four-year contract thru 2016.
Francona, 53, brings more than 30 years of professional baseball experience to the Indians organization...
CLEVELAND -- Money never came up.
Well it came up in the brief negotiations about his salary, but new Indians manager Terry Francona said he never asked if the Indians would commit to spending more money on players, or if the payroll would increase.
I dont want to say its none of my business, Francona said Monday morning at his introductory news conference. But that wasnt one of...
Mark Shapiro The Indians team president and Chris Antonetti may have just pulled off one of the greatest job protection acts of all time. They reached out and hired Terry Francona to be the Cleveland Indians 42nd manager and they pulled it of. Francona came out in his post hiring press conference and said there were two big reasons he took the Indians manager job, Shapiro and Antonetti...
It is becoming less of a surprise that Terry Francona will be taking over as manager of the Cleveland Indians. From his ties to the front office as well the fact he played for the Indians in 1988, the connection between Francona and the Indians has made him a logical candidate. Thrown in his experience as a two time World Series winning manager in Boston, Cleveland made a solid...
The Indians have plenty of work to do in order to contend again, but it'd be hard for Cleveland fans to not be optimistic following Terry Francona's introductory news conference. Francona's return to managing became official on Monday, and the former Red Sox skipper and current ESPN analyst couldn't be more thrilled about becoming the Indians' 42nd manager. Initially...
CLEVELAND -- Terry Francona signed a four-year contract with the Cleveland Indians. He hopes to stay even longer. "I don't want to be a rental manager," Francona said Monday as he was introduced as the club's 42nd manager. "I didn't want to come in worried. I want to be part of the solution. I want to stick around. "I didn't come here to go to...
The Cleveland Indians announced Monday that Terry Francona has agreed to a four-year contract to be their new manager and will be introduced later in the day. It had been reported since Saturday that Francona would become the manager after interviewing for the job Friday. The team later confirmed the report and that he would be introduced at a press conference at Progressive Field...
The Cleveland Indians formally introduced new manager Terry Francona at a press conference Monday at Progressive Field. Francona signed a four-year deal over the weekend to manage the Indians, but hopes to be around longer than that. "I don't want to be a rental manager," Francona said. "I didn't want to come in worried. I want to be part of the solution...
On Wednesday night, the Yankees rudely reinforced what Red Sox fans have known for some time: The collection of players with "Boston" on their chests as the season wound down was barely a major league team. Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia and Cody Ross led a group of reinforcements that was doing the best it could as the Red Sox fought through a short-staffed lineup all...
Though signing what is reported to be a four-year contract with the Cleveland Indians, recently hired manager Terry Francona reportedly has an ‘out” clause that would allow him to leave the team in the event that team president Mark Shapiro and general manager Chris Antonetti are relieved of their duties.Per ESPN’s Buster Olney:Terry Francona has out clauses in his contract...
There's a good chance Sandy Alomar Jr. will someday become a major league manager, but it might not happen this offseason. Alomar, who is still under contract with the Indians, anticipates that he'll return to Cleveland to be a part of manager Terry Francona's staff in 2013. "I'm a professional with one more year on my contract," Alomar said in a text...
Wow…..Wow….Wow. I still can’t believe it.
The day the Indians decided to fire Manny Acta as their skipper, the first non-Sandy Alomar-name floated out there was Terry Francona. When I saw it, I laughed. In fact, I scoffed at it to the point of being insulted by it being made public. Here were my exact quotes just over a week ago:
Save your Terry Francona pipe dreams. The...

Regardless of how brutal the Browns have looked, there is no doubt we have a serious stud on on hands in Trent Richardson:
Richardson is too wise to admit it, but there must...
