Quote to note

"Everybody in the room knows they have the right to state their opinion. Sometimes you disagree on things. That's good. I think everybody in that room is comfortable enough to know that, when we leave that room, whether we agree or disagree, we're all on the same page in wanting what's best for the Indians."
--Manager Terry Francona, on late-spring meetings with the front office to decide final roster spots for Opening Day.
