Francona on Ramirez antics: "Oh, boy. Good swing, poor judgment. He’ll learn. Hopefully not the hard way, but he’ll learn."
Francona: "That’s not really what we're looking for. I think the home run is good enough. Show up and play the game right. That’s our goal."
Molitor did say he thought Jose Ramirez's bat flip was "over the top." Francona & him talked about it. Was fine with Rosario yelling at him.
Molitor said he and Francona talked after last night's game. Played together for parts of 2 seasons in Milwaukee. https://t.co/Eb0OQTyawP
With Brantley out, Francona said he liked Kipnis in three hole. But, said Ramirez leading off isn't "totally unrelated" to Wed's antics.
Terry Francona says it is not a complete coincidence that Jose Ramirez is batting leadoff tonight, following last night's fireworks.
Francona was asked if moving Ramirez to lead off was totally unrelated to last night's bat flip situation. https://t.co/M685ztUVYa
Francona was asked if Trevor Bauer will have any pitch count limitations tonight: "Probably about 200," he joked. (I think)
Francona, on Jose Ramirez's 9th-inning error: "The game can be humbling. I’m sure [the Twins] took a little extra satisfaction out of that.”
Francona: Indians have asked Urshela not to play winter ball. Third baseman will spend part of his winter training in Fla. with Lindor.
Biggest news from Terry Francona's pregame session: clubhouse workers unwrap each piece of gum that's in his bucket in the dugout.
Ha. Francona said he never asked for his gum pieces to be unwrapped. Clubbies just started doing it on their own. https://t.co/fqWYufKm7A
