Here is what I am saying Mark Shapiro, you have done an excellent job of assembling a very talented team with a very limited budget. Please do not let it go to waste by sticking with Eric Wedge. You need to make a move, or you will lose this opportunity. The more I watch, the more of Mike Hargrove I see in Eric Wedge, and we all know how that turned out for the fans of Cleveland. I am sorry, but it is time, fire Eric Wedge before he ruins this city’s chance for a World Championship. If your manager brings nothing to the table when your guys are between the lines doing battle, isn’t he just a public relations guy?
I guess I should at least off another option. Is there anyone available that could maybe bring some fire to the team? Hmmmmm. Maybe someone that won’t be these guys friend. Hmmmmm. In the immortal words of Rachel Phelps, “I think the problem is we’re coddling these guys too much.” I think I know of a guy that fits this mold. Hey Shapiro, why don’t you give Sweet Lou Piniella a call and see what he is doing for the rest of the year.
