“I hope to have some resolution before the season is over. . hopefully. If I was told today that I was going to be back, if I was told today that I wouldn’t be back, I wouldn’t do anything differently the rest of the way. That’s not who I am. I want to put us in the best position to be the best team we can be next year regardless of whether I’m here or not.”
Where do I stand on this topic? The Indians have blown this team completely up. Victor Martinez and Cliff Lee – gone. Mark DeRosa, Ryan Garko, Ben Francisco – Peace. Rafael Betancourt and Carl Pavano – Later. With the organization clearly in rebuilding mode for 2010, the obvious move is to start with a fresh face to lead the young group. Wedge has had seven years to prove himself. Whether you believe he is a good manager or not, sometimes all it takes is a new voice.
Just ask the Colorado Rockies.
