Courtesy of the good folks at the Dugout Sports Show (@DugoutSportsShow) and Waiting For Next Year, we can inform you that the Cleveland Indians have scheduled a 1:30 press conference, presumably to announce the firing of manager Eric Wedge.
The Cleveland Indians, a choice by many including myself to rebound into 2007 form, and make this year’s postseason, fell into last place earlier this week. Aj Kaufman echoes the sentiment of many Indians fans: Eric Wedge must go!
Major League Baseball’s first half of the season ended poorly for Ohio’s two teams. Indians fans lost hope a while ago, but at least Reds fans still have some hope that their team could stay in the race in the second half of the season.
With the All Star Break looming, it’s time to hand out some midseason hardware. Who are the first half MVPs, Cy Youngs, and Managers of the Year for the AL and NL Central?
Click through and find out, along with a few other less traditional and ignominious awards (like greatest old school baseball card ever, won hands down by Jim Leyland).
Despite a team that was a pennant contender in April having the AL’s worst record most of May, June and July, manager Eric Wedge and his staff has the support of GM Mark Shapiro and will serve out his term the rest of 2009, and perhaps beyond.
