It's time for new leadership for our Cleveland Indians!!

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

I just saw on the Indians website that they are announcing today that Eric Wedge and his coaching staff will be dismissed. They will continue to coach the last 6 games of the season then they will be gone.

I don't want to seem heartless but it is time for a change! I don't know these men personally, I am sure they are great human beings. I don't want to bad mouth them, I know from being the aunt of football coaches how much fans words can hurt everyone!! But at the same time I have been hoping for this change to come all season.

Good luck Eric and staff in the future. And to the incoming Indians manager, whomever you may be....PLEASE we are desperate for a winner in Cleveland!!

A die-hard Indians, Browns, Cavs and Buckeyes fan,

    I do agree that it was time for a change. I also agree with Kosta2 alot has to be said about both the players and coaches/managers working together as a team.

    In the case of the Indians though, I think it has everything to do with the ownership and lack of funds they may have, which is why we aren't getting quality players.

    A fan that was interviewed on TV this morning also made the comment about the ownership, but followed it up with, "You can't fire the owners." To which my husband said, "Yes, we can, just stop buying tickets." In my opinion, I think he has a point..

    It is about time! Been an Indians fan for forever. I remember taking my kids to the old stadium when they were still in diapers. We always went to games and I enjoyed watching them on TV. Sorry to say that they were so pathetic this year/ didn't even attend one game. So sad. I'm the kind of fan that has an Indians pennant in my front window from the start to the end of the season. I remember going to games when they lost 100 games that year.Still cheered them on. It just seemed that the " big shots" didn't care all that much about the team. I know it's a business/ and they are rebuilding, but to let go some of our best players and trade them for mediocre players just doesn't make sense. Oh well I guess that's why I'm not a "big shot".

    It's too bad they had to lose their jobs/ but any job you have if you continually get poor evaluations/ time to look for a new job.

    I have vented/ thanks for the opportunity. I am both sad and happy. emoticon emoticon

    Not much of an Indians fan, but I do know that they have really struggled this year. But, Wedge is from my home town so that makes me sad. I hope that a change in coaching staff will be good for the team.

    while I don't profess to know much about how a coach effects a teams ability to win or lose....
    it needs to be said that it is the players as much as the coach and without them giving their all, or hey, New players ...

    don't think a coach or a team of coaches are gonna make those guys winners...
