BREAKING NEWS: Indians fire Eric Wedge


CLEVELAND – Indians fans have been at odds with Larry and Paul Dolan for some time, but they will be pleased with ownership’s latest decision.

With six games left in a highly disappointing season, Cleveland fired Eric Wedge, bringing to an end a seven-year tenure for the much-maligned manager, who was handpicked by general manager Mark Shapiro.

Wedge and all of the Indians coaches were dismissed prior to a doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday, but the manager and his staff will remain until the regular season is complete.

“This is obviously an announcement I never envisioned having to make,” Shapiro said. “It’s tough personally and professionally.”

Wedge’s seven years as manager ends with just one playoff appearance (2007).
