The BBWAA has announced Terry Francona as the 2013 American League Manager of the Year.
Francona edged out John Farrell, receiving 16 first-place votes to Farrell's 12. Most had Farrell as the favorite, but Tito is certainly a deserving winner, leading the Indians to a Wild Card spot after entering the season with no playoff expectations. He's won two World Series titles, but this is his first Manager of the Year award. Tue, Nov 12, 2013 06:58:00 PM

Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said the club has enough assets to be a player in free agency this winter.

Cleveland's 23rd-ranked payroll of $73,724,300 in 2013 will assuredly rise next season, as the club's revenue rose 20-percent this year. "I'm confident we'll have the resources to building a contending team for next year," Antonetti said. "I think we'll be aggressive." Antonetti certainly has his work cut out for him if he wants the Indians to play more than 162 games again. Starters Ubaldo Jimenez and Scott Kazmir are both free agents, and the long-term status of relievers Chris Perez and Joe Smith and outfielder Drew Stubbs are up in the air. Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera could be traded, a move that could save money and restock the farm system. If Antonetti decides to walk down that road, Mike Aviles would likely enter the starting lineup until stud shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor is ready.

Terry Francona was ejected from Saturday's game against the Tigers in the top of the eighth inning for arguing with home plate umpire Andy Fletcher.

Francona got between Fletcher and Nick Swisher, who had taken offense to a called third strike on Michael Brantley to end the inning. It marked the second time this season that Francona had been tossed from a game.
