Mike Hargrove throws his reversible halo sombrero rain hat in the ring.
But would Hargrove, who is still held in high regards by the fans of Cleveland be interested in the position?
“Yes and No,” he said. “Yea,h I would be very interested in coming back, but as long as Sandy’s in the mix than probably not.”
“I do have an interest in managing again somewhere, here would be great but as long as Sandy’s being considered as one of the primary candidates then probably not,” he said.
As someone who calls northeast Ohio home, Hargrove has seen the frustrations of the Indians fan base.
“There has to be some glimmer of hope, some glimmer of something there for people to latch onto.”
“Indians fans the world over, there are a lot of them, I think are the most resilient best fans in the game, you know. They’ve survived so long just on hope that something needs to grab their attention,” said Hargrove.
“A lot of times when things are going good, things aren’t nearly as good as they seem and when they’re going bad they’re not really as bad as they seem.”
“I firmly believe that the right people are in charge. I think that Mark Shapiro and Chris Antonetti are good at what they do, they work awfully hard at it, they’re intelligent,” he said. “And so I think that we need to just grab the fans attention. ”
“It’s easy to sit here and say ‘Don’t give up on the Indians.’ I mean, its an easy thing to say. It’s a tough thing to do, but things will get better and I think it has a chance to get better a lot sooner than we all expect it to,” he said.
