When the Cleveland Indians fired Eric Wedge and hired Manny Acta I literally screamed “WHY?!!!” Manny Acta got fired by the Nationals last season after compiling a 26-61 record (29.9%).

Looking at the Indians’ pitching staff combined with Acta’s managing prowess I see the Indians having a long year in 2010.
