Default Indians Fire Acta

Indians Fire Acta With Six Games Remaining

And it begins. How long until Ozzie Guillen and Bobby Valentine are canned?

Playing Lillibridge at shorstop last night was the final straw.

I don't really know if Acta is a good manager or not, but he didn't exactly have a stellar ball club to work with.

That's what you get for taking 2 of 3 from the White Sox.

Bad,bad Manny.

It's funny how quickly these regimes fly by these days. Seems like they just fired Wedge and were hyping up how good of a choice Acta was.

They had a nice run and fell off the table this year. That's a signal to management. I'm not talking about RV, of course.

Bobby V should be gone once the season ends.

Ozzie? I'd say he's 50/50. Who knows what Loria is thinking.

One BIG one I'm curious about: Ron Gardenhire. Here's a link to the ownership giving Gardy and GM Terry Ryan the "vote of confidence" early in the season: http://www.1500espn.com/sportswire/T...rdenhire050712

I really don't know what to make of that. I'm unsure if all "votes of confidence" are made equal, but typically they don't bode well once they occur.

That's what I was thinking. Between Hafner and Sizemore being perpetually injured and their GM continually trading away their best pitchers, he had a ****ty hand dealt to him.

Scoscia seemed untouchable before this season but the Angel's management has to be really disppointed after spending so much $ and finishing third.
