Terry Francona talks to Jose Ramirez, Jason Kipnis after Cleveland Indians’ trade for Josh Donaldson | Cleveland.com

A lot of folks seem to be reading into comments from Jason Kipnis and making it seem like he’s going rogue and hates everything right now. I find those takes to be more than a bit hyperbolic. I’m sure Kip isn’t stoked about moving off of second base, but he’s a competitor and he desperately wants to win a championship for Cleveland. I believe that those desires outweigh any negativity he may be feeling about the position shake-up.
