It's That Time Again...

Yes, it is early but is it too early to start calling for the scalp of Cleveland Indians Manager Eric Wedge?
Why not?!
The team is 1-5, off to their worst start since 1985. They had a terrible Spring in which they blamed the weather, the atmosphere, the baseball gods or demons for their desert failures.
I grow so very tired of waiting for "it to come together." How many time do we "grind it out" with the same poor results.
Last year, when the team failed miserably in April, we were told that no changes were going to happen until 40 - 50 games into the season. Guess what? Nothing did change, they kept on losing and we wound up 81 - 81 for 2008.
Yes, the Indians were the best team in baseball in the second half of the season last year but who cares when it doesn't matter?!
How long do we let Cliff Lee and Fausto Carmona go out and get shelled until their mechanics are adjusted? These guys had a miserable Spring but you know what, it must have been the thin desert air. Bullshit! It is more than likely just an air biscuit from pitching coach Carl Willis. The thin desert air was there for both teams.
Note to Eric Wedge; If you always do what you have always done, you will get the same results.
Try going for a win for a change!
So yeah, now everyone can say I am full of shit and I could care less.
This team is full of shit if they are going to keep a bargain basement manager and expect to compete...2007 was more of a fluke...a fluke that came up short, imagine that!
