But, this one:
Tim Belcher greed to become the pitching coach for the Indians yesterday. Well, he'll be doing it for the whole season, really, but he signed up yesterday. The new head-chief-in-charge, Manny Acta, is taking his time in rebuilding the Indians after Wedge's unceremonious dumping.
I haven't talked any about Wedge's replacement. Call it sour grapes, call it being preoccupied with other things in life, call it "David Being Michael." To be honest, I hadn't given much thought to Acta until today. I'm sure many of you knew that he was the head guy for Washington. I didn't. Some of you may have known that he, like the guy he replaced in Cleveland, was fired from his job. Nice. The Indians couldn't wait to hire someone, so they picked the guy who was fired from his last job. Maybe it's just me, but I'm thinking that might not be the best method for picking potential employees - let alone the one who is supposed to be management material. I guess we'll see how it goes.
