Terry Francona’s interview to replace Manny Acta as Indians manager took place this morning in Cleveland, as the team’s official Twitter account revealed:
Terry Francona arrived at 8:15AM ET today. Even spent some time on the field with Chris Antonetti watching our employee softball game.

Everything points to Francona being the Indians’ first choice, with Sandy Alomar also going through the interview process (and effusively praising Francona along the way) as the in-house fallback option.
