Need advice? Have a pressing question? Ask TERRi!

First, he rode a scooter all over Goodyear.

Then, he kicked off our “Harlem Shake” video with his, uh, best dance moves.

Now, Terry Francona has broadened his horizons into the counseling field, offering players Nick Swisher, Jason Kipnis, Vinnie Pestano and others advice on very serious matters.

It’s Ask TERRi. Enjoy.
