08:45 AM ET 03.03 | Mike Hargrove has the relaxed look of someone comfortable with his role as a former player and manager. Just don't call him a retired manager. "Hopefully, I'll get another shot," Hargrove said Saturday, a couple of days into a two-week stint helping out the Indians in spring training. Hargrove is 63, which makes him younger than five current big-league managers. But it has been 5 1/2 years since he left the Mariners at midseason 2007, and it's easy to think Hargrove doesn't even want to manage again. It's easy to forget that Hargrove did interview for the Blue Jays' job last winter before the Jays settled on bringing back John Gibbons. "I was excited about it," Hargrove said. For now, Hargrove is excited about the Indians, his team for seven years as a player and another nine as manager. He said he felt a completely different vibe around the team this spring, and he credits that to new manager Terry Francona.

The buzz around the Tribe camp is they know they have a good chance of finishing ahead of the Twinkles and Royals in their division.
