Francona vows to come back stronger in '18

In some ways, losing Game 5 of this year's American League Division Series has already been Jason Kipnis Jerseys harder for Terry Francona than losing Game 7 of last year's World Series.

"When we lost last year, it was over, there was no more baseball," Francisco Lindor Jerseys Francona said at Friday's post-mortem with reporters. "When we lose, I want everybody to lose, and that's not going to happen. So that's hard to swallow."

Francona will feel better when the baseball Manny Ramirez Jerseys ends, after somebody else has the champagne celebration and the hoisting of the Commissioner's Trophy that Tito has tried so hard to bring to Northeast Ohio. At that point, he'll be able to more optimistically look ahead to 2018, when the Indians will return much of the club that won 102 games and put together baseball's longest winning streak in 101 years. That's when the reality of a wasted 2-0 lead to the Yankees in the ALDS presented by Doosan -- to say nothing of the swell of second-guessing Image going on among Tribe fans at the moment -- will start to sting a little less.

But Francona is the first to admit this offseason will be a challenge for him. It's not just the emotion of an untimely exit from October, but the exhaustion of a year that presented more physical difficulty than any other.

Francona has estimated that he's had more than 20 surgeries in his lifetime. He has two artificial knees and a fake hip. But 2017 marked the first time his health issues dragged him out of the dugout. Because of an irregular heartbeat that required a cardiac ablation procedure, the 58-year-old Francona had to leave two games early in June and missed six games in July, in addition to the All-Star Game.

Throughout Cleveland Indians Jerseys the year, Francona was as engrossed and as entertaining as ever, but, because of the heart and the hip, he had to make many physical concessions, such as skipping pregame BP and conducting road interviews with reporters in his office and not the dugout.

That's why Francona said he's committed to getting "stronger" this offseason.
