Manny Acta? Really? The Cleveland Indians should have done better!

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%). He has a career record (3 years) in the majors of 158-252 (38.5%)! He has the worst win/loss % of any active manager heading into the 2010 season. Looking at the Indians’ pitching staff combined with Acta’s managing prowess I see the Indians having a long year in 2010.

    Interesting. So if you were the GM who would you have hired?

    The two guys that come to mind right away are Mike Hargrove or Jeff Datz. Hargrove wanted to come back and manage the Indians but Shapiro didn’t want him. I don’t know why….maybe it’s because he wins too much. Datz is now the bench coach of the Orioles. He was with the Indians for a long time and really deserved to be considered for the promotion. Instead the Indians are stuck with Manny Acta.
