    Re: Indians fire Eric Wedge

    I'm not a huge Dusty fan, but I would definitely want him to lead a team rather than Wedge. Living in Columbus, we get our fair share of Tribe coverage and it always seemed to me that Wedge was overmatched being a big league skipper....he also loved to give people the old "I played the game, so I know more than you" attitude (aka Tracy Jones disease).

    I agree with you in that I'm no fan of Dusty but I'd rather keep him than Hire Wedge, the guy seems like he sucks all of the enthusiasm out of his teams. Ya gotta give your players some degree of individualism and he seemed like a drill Sgt. All that said they had some fairly poor pitching beyond their top few arms and their positional players weren't all that great either beyond the few obvious ones.
