Terry Francona will meet with Indians on Friday, according to report

With both sides showing interest in a possible deal, Terry Francona and the Cleveland Indians will meet Friday to discuss the team's vacant managerial position, according to Matt Loede of 92.3 The Fan. The club is expected to offer the former Red Sox skipper the position as manager over the weekend.

One of the most successful managers in recent memory, Francona led the Red Sox to five postseason appearances and two World Series championships over his eight-year tenure in Boston. He was fired by the Red Sox in 2011 following the team's massive collapse at the end of the season, which cost the team a playoff spot.

The Indians aren't entirely committed to Francona, though, as they're also interviewing interim manager Sandy Alomar Jr. over the weekend, as Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer reports. Some believe that Alomar has a very good shot at the job, even with Francona showing interest given his reputation around the league.
