The official word: Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona will be featured in a new episode of MLB Network’s Studio 42 with Bob Costas this Wednesday, January 30 at 9:00 p.m. ET. Taped at MLB Network last week, Francona discusses key sections of his new book Francona: The Red Sox Years written with Boston Globe sports columnist Dan Shaughnessy.

Throughout the hour-long interview, Francona talks about his departure from the Red Sox in 2011; his relationships with Boston’s front office, players and media during his tenure; how the 2011 Red Sox compared to the 2004 World Series-winning team; and managing today’s Cleveland Indians, the Philadelphia Phillies from 1997 to 2000, and NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan when he was a member of the Double-A Birmingham Barons in 1994.
