    Cleveland Fires Acta

    http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/84...maining-season

    No surprise here, but the timing seems a bit odd.

    Note that he got the dreaded vote of confidence a few weeks ago.

    Makes me wonder what he did in the past week or so to really piss off ownership. Why couldn't they have waited until 1 minute after the last game of the season?

    Yes, very odd. Maybe he wanted to go on a hunting/fishing trip this weekend and pushed the envelope.

    Stability>Instability. I'd rather watch a franchise that holds on to its front office and management for a little too long than one that fires guys seemingly at random.

    Cleveland is not a bad team because Manny Acta was the manager. Cleveland is a bad team because they have bad players.

    I agree the timing is odd. Maybe there were other opportunities he wanted to pursue and asked management to speed up their decision.

    A couple of weeks after the dreaded vote of confidence is about par for mgr. firings...but why not wait till end of season?? I like Manny, I think he did a good job here with the Nats (in the days before Harper, Strasberg and both Zimmermans). I hope he lands on his feet next spring.

    Cleveland has been stable. Constantsuckage stable for a while. Same way the Twins have been the past couple seasons. I guess they do not like that stability so they try to find someone who can change that. And they were in the contention path for a while both of the 2 last seasons.
