Cleveland Indians

Eric Wedge Must Go!

Midwest Sports FansAnalyst IJune 19, 2009

The Cleveland Indians blew a six run lead Monday night versus Milwaukee, and then today, in a debacle, predictably blew a 7-0 lead, losing 8-7 in ten after Kerry Wood was one out from putting Chicago away at Wrigley Field, 7-6.

Eric Wedge is frustrated, has lost the respect of his players, and his team has underachieved in remarkable fashion three of the past four seasons. They currently ride a four game losing streak after a nice win this past Sunday night vs Saint Louis on ESPN.

There is nothing left for him to ruin here.

Injuries are part of the game, so that is no excuse. And since Eric’s a good, humble, honest man deep down, he won’t use that as a cop out either. He’s done a poor job and needs to pay the price, just like anyone in business.

This should have been done six weeks ago; it should have been done three weeks ago, and it sure as heck should be done now, Mr. Shapiro.
