CLEVELAND -- There will be questions answered by the Indians in Spring Training camp.

The rotation, in which only a healthy Jake Westbrook, Fausto Carmona and Justin Masterson seem to have guaranteed spots, will be filled out from a mix of competitors that includes Aaron Laffey, David Huff, Jeremy Sowers, Mitch Talbot and Carlos Carrasco.

Matt LaPorta's health will be evaluated, and his readiness for Opening Day will go a long way toward determining what the Indians do at first base and in left field. Utility infield and bullpen spots will also be filled.

But this will be an important developmental year for this organization, and the specific makeup of the Opening Day roster could prove to be a trivial matter by season's end.

What will matter more, in the long run, is whether a new manager, Manny Acta, can establish a positive, successful working environment with a young group of players. To that end, Spring Training, which officially kicks off when pitchers and catchers report to the Player Development Complex in Goodyear, Ariz., on Feb. 21, will be a meaningful evaluation period for a new coaching staff working with an impressionable group.

Acta, obviously, has given all this a decent amount of thought in the three and a half months since he took the job with the Tribe. And he assembled his coaches in Goodyear last month to talk about the challenges that lie ahead.

"I wanted them to hear how these players have been evaluated the last few years, physically and mentally," he said, "so they come into Spring Training and aren't blindsided by any of our players and approach each individual the proper way."

Of course, the coaches -- including pitching coach Tim Belcher, hitting coach Jon Nunnally, bullpen coach Scott Radinsky, bench coach Tim Tolman, first-base and catchers coach Sandy Alomar Jr. and third-base and infield coach Steve Smith -- are encouraged to only read so much into those reports. When camp begins, they'll form their own set of opinions.

The same goes for Acta.

"I'm not just going to rely on what I've heard," Acta said. "That's what Spring Training is for."

Acta knows he's inheriting a team that few people are expecting to contend this season. He adamantly refutes any notion that the club is in "rebuild" mode, but he also knows the concerns about the starting rotation, in particular, are real.

What Acta wants to do in the weeks leading up to Opening Day is establish an air of positivity in the clubhouse of a team that hasn't had a winning season since 2007. He wants his players not to focus on the talent that has been dealt away over the last two years, but on the talent that's here.

"Every one of these guys is confident in their abilities," Acta said. "They know what went wrong here, and we're going to throw some numbers at them, too, to show them what went wrong and how to fix it."

One area that interests Acta is the Tribe's trend of slow starts. The Indians had five losing Aprils in seven seasons under former skipper Eric Wedge, and Acta plans to address that with his club.

"We just need to make them aware of the slow starts and the plan we're putting together for Spring Training to see if that can help," Acta said. "Sometimes you do everything you can and, at the end of the day, you still can't control that. But we have a plan in place."

What does that plan entail?

"We're going to attack it different ways," he said. "The main thing is to probably put together our ballclub for the last week to 10 days and throw them out there, so they can be together and go all-out, so we don't have to turn on a switch in Chicago [on Opening Day]."

Acta seems to think he can assemble his Opening Day roster relatively quickly.

"We don't have that many spots [open]," he said. "We only have a couple of fights for spots. Most of the guys are pretty much settled. So it's just a matter of getting the best out of them and getting everybody on the same page."

One of the reasons the Indians hired Acta, disregarding his .385 winning percentage in two and a half years with the Nationals, was what they deem to be his ability to relate to young players and keep them motivated, even when the results aren't encouraging.

"He's obviously a guy that's got a lot of charisma, that's excited to be here," general manager Mark Shapiro said. "There is a power in the fact that he's excited to be here. He resonates a positive energy that I think has a chance to impact our team in a meaningful way."

In a matter of days, Acta and his coaches will get their first chance to make that impact. And Acta is expecting the players to be responsive.

"These are all high-character guys," he said, "and I know they're going to strive to make some changes here."

I'm sure it does, seeing that he's used to starting off 9-25. Eric Wedge is going to look like Casey Stengel compared to Manny.

Yeah, if I'm a player, I'm not exactly chomping at the bit for instruction from a manager who's career record is among the all-time worst. Sucks to be Cleeflen, but maybe they do a better job of cutting the grass up there. Gotta wonder whose cack he sat on to get where he is today, but hey.... he did win a GCL trophy.

No swing zone: Today is the second and final day for "tracking' practice by hitters. Pitchers are throwing to them at full speed, but the hitters just watch the pitches go by. There's no screen in front of the pitcher and there's no batting cage for the hitter. It looks like the hitters are posing for pictures.

This is manager Manny Acta's idea.

Manager Manny Acta inspires with action and words: Indians Insider
By Paul Hoynes, The Plain Dealer
February 27, 2010, 1:05AM

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Manager Manny Acta threw a curveball to reporters Thursday when he said he was going to give his "Vincente Lombardo" speech to his players before the Indians first full-squad workout Friday.

Vincente Lombardo, translated, is a reference to football coaching legend Vince Lombardi.

"I just dropped that name on you guys," said Acta after Friday's workout. "I'm not a Vince Lombardi-type guy. I'm a John Wooden-type of guy. I've never met him personally, but coach Wooden has made the most impact on my career as a coach. I read his biography and a lot of other books."

Acta's said he's used Wooden's pyramid of success theory wherever he's won in the minors and winter ball.

"John Wooden is all about the team," said Acta. "No individual is above the team. That is the kind of mind-set you want to set in your guys. Also, you need to be a major-league person before you become a major-league player.

"He believes good things happen to good people. It worked for him. You have to admire a guy who has lived the way he has lived. And a guy who had the patience to lose for 14 years in a row and then became the greatest [men's college basketball] coach ever in this country."

Wooden is the former UCLA basketball coach who won 10 straight NCAA championships.

The Indians have been picked to finish last or close to last in the AL Central this year. The Sporting News ranks them as the worst team in the big leagues. Acta touched on that in his speech.

Uh-huh. It's almost as though he doesn't mind any of it. Nice gig he's got...Low expectations from management and the press every year, $500K paycheck coming in. What more do ya need? Wins? Nah, why bother? "Tracking practice" - Jesus H. F*cking Flores, I believe I've heard it all now.

I don't care if a manager emotes or not. It's not really the point, so long as he knows wtf he is doing. The fact that Manny didn't show emotions is comendable in most cases. The fact that he rarely did anything aggressively is what's not. When Riggleman came in, he got a lot more inventive with the game plan and he commanded respect among his players. While no players cut on Manny directly, they were quick to praise Riggleman for his approach, as if to point out what had been missing all along.

If you're not planning to win for a few seasons, why pay a real manager an MLB salary when you can get Manny for the price of a league minimum rookie?

And I really like his Vince Lombardi - John Wooden metaphor. Like it's a question of which philosophy he follows, not the fact that he'll never have half the win percentage of either one.

I'm still howling. Butt funny. He doesn't want them to get into any bad habits, like taking a third strike, or getting behind in the count because the bat's on your shoulder. He thinks it's terminal when guys come out to jack the ball at the beginning of ST before they get sore and cut their swing back to normal. Cigar store Indian mf is gonna be even more comical because we don't have to put up with his fermented ass.

A BPG week just ain't complete until you've filed your weekly dump report. Sounds as though you need to eat at Mickey D's or Burger King more often. Clinical studies have proven that frequenting establishments such as those can actually relieve constipation almost immediately...Not kidding. Of course, you'll probably need to keep more TP at arm's length than usual to deal with the aftershocks.

since me, you, brue, ridgely, & vladihondo have provided recent scouting reports on The Browns, i believe then that we're slowly jelling as a unit here at bibbychee.

Section 609 of the BPG Brown Air Act, excerpt: ...after hatching a wet monster, thou shalt not spray Lysol, or turn on a fan. It is vital for others to walk into the bathroom & breathe deep the gathering gloom that you left behind...and the door MUST be kept closed after you exit so that said funk may not escape...If one decides to leave the toilet unflushed so that others (especially very small children) walk in & unexpectedly see the bombastness you left there, bonus points will be issued.

After Tearing Down Roster, Indians Try to Rebuild
By TYLER KEPNER

GOODYEAR, Ariz. — The last World Series began with a special kind of misery for fans in Cleveland. The starting pitchers, C. C. Sabathia and Cliff Lee, had been teammates on the Indians just 16 months earlier. Each won an American League Cy Young Award, only to be traded in the swift overhaul of a team that had nearly won a pennant.

...

For the Indians’ new manager, Manny Acta, a decimated roster is all relative. Acta came from the lowly Washington Nationals, and he said the Indians had many more pieces in place — at least five or six legitimate everyday players. The A.L. Central is relatively balanced, Acta added, and some of his pitchers have decent track records.

Shapiro, who fired Eric Wedge as manager after seven seasons, said Acta, who is from the Dominican Republic, would help the organization relate better to Spanish-speaking players. He also cited Acta’s positive outlook.

“That’s the way I am,” Acta said. “I prefer to be a glass-half-full type of guy. Life is about attitude, and my attitude is a positive one. I think here in Cleveland, obviously fans are not happy with what’s gone on the last few years, and the fact that this team hasn’t won since 1948.”

Manager Manny Acta optimistic, even if Cleveland Indians fans aren't: Bud Shaw
By Bud Shaw, The Plain Dealer
March 02, 2010, 10:42PM

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Another Cy went bye. An already trim payroll was put on a diet.

The pervasive mood in town concerning the Indians is a cross between disinterest and disgust.

Manny Acta is making a Vaudeville entrance as the new manager, taking a tomato-splattered stage in front of an agitated and limber audience.

So it's fair to ask. Why is this man smiling?

For one thing, he thinks you're dead wrong. No disrespect.

You know who you are.

The guy who is convinced the Indians are the Washington Nationals of the American League, or, worst case, the Washington Generals. Yes, you.

Acta recognized during the Indians' winter caravan the depths of frustration and the need to sell the program after two poor seasons. And he did what he always does, which is engage people. In this case, he preached that this isn't a stripped-down total rebuild beyond all reasonable hope, not even close.

"I do believe in what's being done here," he said Tuesday. "It has worked in the past. It worked in the '90s. It worked up to 2007. . . . I don't think just because a couple guys aren't here that this is going to be a team that isn't exciting to watch."

OK, a "couple" doesn't quite do last year's exodus justice.

The real PR problem for the Indians is that Manny Acta was the most exciting addition since last season, and nobody pays to watch the manager.

...

General Manager Mark Shapiro says the organization didn't look at Acta as "the anti-Eric" personality-wise.

"He got the job because of his strong foundation as a baseball man," Shapiro said. "He managed at every level. He coached at every level. He spent 10 years learning to be a manager."

Acta researched the Indians as completely as they checked up on him. When the Nationals fired him at the All-Star break, he started doing his homework. The rumors were out there on Wedge. So he put the Indians on his must-see TV list along with some other teams expected to make managerial changes.

Decisions big and small have already followed. A suggestion for Fausto Carmona to move to the left side of the rubber gave the right-hander a chance to try it out in winter ball. We'll see how that goes.

The Indians' regulars will play together the final 10 days of spring training in hopes of triggering a quick start. That can't hurt after the April snail crawl under Wedge.

Years of organizational conversation about moving Grady Sizemore out of the leadoff role never swayed Wedge, who thought it would be unfair to Sizemore.

Acta needed less than a week of spring training before making the announcement that Sizemore would hit second.

First, he sought out Keith Woolner, the Indians' Manager of Baseball Research and Analytics -- a guy with degrees from Stanford and MIT.

Woolner co-authored "Mind Games: How the Boston Red Sox Got Smart, Won a World Series and Created a New Blueprint For Winning." Acta took a few lineups to Woolner and the discussion began.

"It's one of my favorite books," Acta said Tuesday. "It validated some things I already believed in. I think of myself as a throwback but I'm not afraid of new things."

Acta's sabermetrics sermon paying off
After seeing numbers, Tribe hurlers pounding strike zone

By Tom Singer / MLB.com
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The late-February reporting date had the proverbial groups checking into the Indians' Spring Training complex in Goodyear, Ariz.: Pitchers and catchers and sabermetricians.

New manager Manny Acta, having spent much of the winter frowning his way through the 2009 record books, and pitching coach Tim Belcher came to camp with a message: Turn the tables in your favor by not being afraid to throw strikes, and early.


...

So, cue the lecture. ...

"We had a meeting early on," Acta said, "showing them the difference between making pitches at 1-and-0 or 3-and-1 and 0-and-1, reminding them that even the best hitters make an out seven out of 10 times.

"The problem here was ... you can't have sinkerball pitchers walking people. It's a confidence thing -- but numbers don't lie."

The favorite set of numbers in Acta's dossier, and the one that elicited the most wide-eyed reaction, showed that of the first-pitch strikes put into play, only seven percent resulted in hits.

That's seven percent, as in a batting average of .070.

Powerful incentive for pitchers to not start off batters by pitching away from them, afraid of making too good a pitch too early in the count.

"And [it's] a good way to conserve pitches," Acta said. "You stay longer in the game. You help out the bullpen arms. But it's not enough to keep telling them that. You have to show them the numbers."

...

That's straight out of Pitching 101, of course. But to get his hurlers into that strike-throwing mindset, Acta suggests some advanced approaches.

"I try to get them to sit behind the screen during batting practices," the manager said. "They'll see the batting-practice pitcher throwing 50 [mph], and every ball still doesn't get hit out. It's not that easy."


...

2009: Sergey Tuganov, a 28-year-old Russian, bet two women that he could continuously have sex with them both for twelve hours. Several minutes after winning the $4,300 bet, he suffered a heart attack and died. It is believed that the heart attack was the result of Tuganov ingesting an entire bottle of Viagra just after accepting the bet.

It's like when he hit that single on MLB TV the other day, it looked like his hands were a lot stronger, he took it to right. He looked bigger in his forearms, etc. It's like he didn't grimace or apologize like he did here. Whatever. He'll probably hit 15-20 with enough ABs.

Disappointed email was not from Manny personally.

Stinkfinger from Sandusky, OH asks:

Manny, is it considered proper technique to extend the thumb away from the buttocks while picking one's anus with the forefinger, or should it be wedged against the buttocks to help with leverage and provide greater access?

Acta pleased with spring record
Manager thinks solid mark is a sign of things to come


By Anthony Castrovince / MLB.com

03/30/10 10:07 PM ET

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- The games don't count, but they still count for something, in manager Manny Acta's mind.

Acta takes a certain pride in the 16-7-2 record the Indians took into Tuesday night's game at Surprise Stadium against the Royals. And he thinks it's something fans should pay attention to.

"They should be excited," Acta said. "Isn't it better to be 16-7 than 7-16? There's got to be a reason why we're 16-7. These guys are playing well and working on what we want them to work on."

A year ago, under Eric Wedge, the Indians entered Spring Training with loftier expectations for the season ahead than they have now, but they faltered in Cactus League play. The Tribe limped out of Arizona with an 11-19 record, and that proved to be an ominous sign of things to come.

What encourages Acta is the fact that the Indians won games early in camp with lineups that relied heavily on young prospects, and they're winning games late, with the regulars playing more frequently.

"If our record was horrible, everybody would be saying horrible things about us," Acta said. "When you win and play good, it's good for the soul and it's good for the confidence of the young kids."

Give it til 4/30. By that time, Sizemore will be sending pictures of his pecker to Manny's cell phone instead of to his girlfriend's. Half the team probably will, for that matter....

So how do you all feel about Acta now? The Indians have still yet to play a meaningful inning of baseball, but doesn’t the Manny Acta hiring already feel significantly more optimistic than it did back in October? Getting off to a good start in Spring training is better than getting off to a bad start, right? Fausto Carmona and the young guns appear to be attacking the strike zone. Asdrubal Cabrera, Grady Sizemore, Shin Soo Choo, and even Travis Hafner are hitting the baseball pretty well. Peter Gammons thinks that the Indians are worth keeping an eye on if nothing else. Isn’t it interesting how the tide can move in and out over time?

Obviously if none of this carries over into the season, it will be meaningless. Still, it is interesting to note that maybe, just maybe, we are starting to see some of the same things that Mark Shapiro and Chris Antonetti saw when they interviewed Manny Acta of the horrendous Washington Nationals.

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Bench coach Tim Tolman worked the Indians locker room Wednesday morning telling players that manager Manny Acta wanted to talk to them. This late in spring training that means only two things to a player -- he's going or staying.

"Final cut-down day is never a good day," said Acta, "because some guys deserve to be in the big leagues who aren't going to be there. But you can only carry 25."

Energetic Acta ready to lead Indians
First-year Tribe manager confident team will compete

By Anthony Castrovince / MLB.com
GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- We find Manny Acta on Field No. 2 at the Indians' Player Development Complex in Goodyear, Ariz., feeding baseballs into a pitching machine as he oversees a bunting practice involving Grady Sizemore, Shin-Soo Choo, Michael Brantley, Travis Hafner and Jhonny Peralta.

Sizemore struggles through his first round of the drill, but then he puts down a beauty of a bunt near the third-base line his next time up.

"That's the way!" Acta yells. "Tribe baseball! Are you in the Tribe?"

Acta has clearly picked up on the Indians' marketing slogan in his short time at the helm. And now, as his first spring camp with the Indians gives way to the 2010 season, he's hoping this young club continues to give him something to cheer about.

After the bunt drill, Acta sat down with MLB.com to discuss the results of this camp, as well as the challenges that lie ahead for him and the Indians in 2010.

...

MLB.com: Now, I know you don't use Twitter. But I do. So I asked my Twitter followers to submit questions for you. One question that I think speaks to the tone of the year was about your energy and your enthusiasm. How do you impart that on your players and keep a team loose, even when a team goes through some rough spots. How do you keep them enthused?

Acta: They look up to me. So the speed of the leader basically sets the pace for the whole group. That's what we're doing here. I show up every day with the same face, and that will give them some indication that things are OK. I'm able to do it. I think if they see their leader put his head down and show up here with a sad face and looking beat up, then it's going to reflect on them. I'm able to [stay positive]. It's my responsibility. I've done it in the past, and I think I have a very good group of guys here, and it won't be very tough for me to keep them motivated.

Acta's theory of field management, in a nutshell:

grin = good
frown = bad

A dynamic leader if ever I saw one.

Westbrook gave up five runs, five hits and four walks. He also hit two batters and tied an Indians record by throwing four wild pitches.

It was about as far from a prototype Jake Westbrook performance as one can get. But manager Manny Acta refused to give in to the thinking it was inevitable that Westbrook would be rusty.

''Jake threw the ball OK,'' Acta said. ''I thought he was a little jumpy and didn't have his good command. I don't care what you say or how long a pitcher has been around, when he doesn't pitch for two years, he's going to be a little antsy.''

Cleveland Indians' Manny Acta has mementos from his first Tribe win: Indians Insider
By Paul Hoynes, The Plain Dealer
April 09, 2010, 4:18AM


"Wun dey, joo'll see my plak in Cuppastun, rye neks to da Jankees' greet mannyjer, Cassie Steygull..."



CHICAGO -- A baseball, a manager's lineup card and the official lineup card from Wednesday's game sat on Manny Acta's desk Thursday afternoon in the visitors' locker room at U.S. Cellular Field. They were mementos from the Indians' 5-3 victory over the White Sox, Acta's first as Tribe manager. It was also Acta's first American League win.

"It's significant," Acta said. "I don't know how much research you guys have done, but I think I'm the first Latin manager to win a game in both leagues. Somebody told me that, so it's very significant to me."

Acta, according to research done with the help of baseball-reference.com, appears to be the first Latin-born full-time manager to win games in both leagues. Cuban-born Cookie Rojas managed the California Angels to a 75-79 finish in 1988 and steered the Florida Marlins to a 1-0 record as an interim manager in 1996 after Rene Lachemann was fired and John Boles was hired to replace him.

He's the only manager born in the Dominican Republic to win games in both leagues. Felipe Alou, Tony Pena and Luis Pujols are the other natives of the Dominican Republic to manage in the big leagues. Alou managed only in the NL, while Pena and Pujols managed in the AL.

The mementos will be placed in a room in Acta's Florida home.

"We'll frame the lineup cards," Acta said. "I've got a room for important stuff, like the World Baseball Classic lineup and my first win with the Nationals, jerseys and stuff like that."

Asked about his first win with the Nationals in 2007, Acta said: "We'd gotten blasted in the first two games [by Florida]. We won the third game on a walkoff by Dmitri Young. That's what made it fun. It was a walkoff after getting clobbered for two days

"I think they know they're walking a tightrope," said Acta. "You can't be walking six guys a game and hope to have a great season. They'll get better."

Fausto Carmona (six), Mitch Talbot (five) and Westbrook (four) lead the staff in walks.

Last year Kansas City's pitchers led the AL with 600 walks. The Indians were second with 598.

Balls bounce wrong way in Indians' loss
Errors, fan interference prove costly to punchless Tribe

By Anthony Castrovince / MLB.com
CLEVELAND -- The smallest crowd in Progressive Field history showed up to watch the Indians play the Rangers on Wednesday night, and little of what they saw was good for a Tribe team that has now dropped five straight.

A costly throwing error by Jhonny Peralta and the continuing inconsistency of the Tribe offense helped pave the way to a 6-2 defeat at the hands of the Rangers in front of a group that appeared even smaller than the announced crowd of 10,071.

It also didn't help the Indians' cause that one of the few fans in attendance interfered with a play in the sixth, costing the Tribe a run.

Not the first time we've seen the upturned palm directed at Manny. There've been a bunch of them. It's like the umpire's saying "So?... what's your point, ya big p*ssy?" Manny just doesn't get it. Never will. When he's done f*cking up baseball as we all know it with Cleeflen, he'll disappear for good.

Another game-changing throwing error by Jhonny Peralta and the continuing inconsistency of the Indians' offense helped pave the way to a 6-2 defeat in front of a group that appeared even smaller than the announced crowd of 10,071.

"We've got to keep fighting," manager Manny Acta said. "There's no magic trick we can pull to stop it."

Cause for concern?

"I'm happy with the way he's played defense," Acta said of Peralta. "You want everybody to catch every ball and make every throw, but he's made some very good plays, too. I'd rather focus on the positives than the two errors he's made."

"The momentum was in our favor," Masterson said. "I'm not saying [the fan] killed it, but with a runner on second, down a run, that's a different story."

In the fan's defense, the state of the Indians' offense did not inspire a great deal of confidence in a comeback. The Tribe has not lived up to offensive expectations at the plate thus far this season, and that showed in a game in which the Indians were 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position and stranded 12 on base.

"I felt we had a lot of good at-bats until the count was deep," Acta said. "We had to really swing the bat late in the count, [but] we went for pitches out of the zone."

See, boil away the fat, and this is the kind of typical feelgood crap that Manny peddles to try and make everyone look past the ineptitude of his ballclub(s), as well as his own. It's quite a highly refined system of BS, if the truth be told....even has some textbook brainwashing elements to it. I suspect it won't be long until someone from the Cleveland media throws it back in his face. Too bad no one in DC ever had enough gumption to do it. What a freakin' bush league con artist....

Nothing in baseball frustrates him, in fact. "Baseball disappoints me; it doesn't frustrate me," Acta said Thursday. "Violent people, negative people, sarcastic people, slow drivers in the left lane and disrespectful people frustrate me. Not baseball."

The Indians have given Acta plenty to be frustrated about, if he were so inclined. They entered the series finale against the Twins with the worst batting average (.215), slugging percentage (.334) and on-base percentage (.300) in the American League.
But Acta has expressed nothing but patience and belief in the bats. "Patience plus self-control leads to success," Acta said. "You have to be patient, because you know things will balance out. Grady Sizemore won't hit .220 [for the season], Travis Hafner won't hit what he's hitting, six guys won't be hitting a buck-eighty. You have to be patient. It's part of coaching, especially when you're dealing with young people."
Not long after Acta uttered those words, the Indians rewarded his patience with a strong showing against Twins right-hander Scott Baker.


Concern raised about fouls at Target Field

MINNEAPOLIS -- Manny Acta, like just about everybody who has passed through the gates of Target Field, has basked in the beauty of the Twins' new home. But Acta did offer one critique of the new digs. He is quite a bit concerned about the proximity of home plate to the on-deck circle and the dugouts. "It's very close and could be dangerous," Acta said.

Noting that he's "not an architect," Acta declined to share his thoughts on how to fix the issue. But he said he fears a potential situation similar to what happened to Cardinals outfielder Juan Encarnacion in 2007. Encarnacion was struck in the eye by a foul ball, prematurely ending his career.

Acta said even those in the dugout are in danger. "I'm so close to my catcher, I feel like I can just yell out, 'Pitch out!' or 'Throw over!'" he said.

Valbuena, Perez take responsibility for loss
Indians had Jays down to last out before error, home run

By Anthony Castrovince / MLB.com
CLEVELAND -- The game-ending grounder scooted right through Luis Valbuena's legs.

The game-winning homer landed in the left-field bleachers.

Neither of those was a positive development for an Indians team that fell, 5-4, in devastating fashion Wednesday afternoon, completing a three-game sweep by the visiting Blue Jays.

The Indians were one out away from a 4-2 victory when Valbuena let Aaron Hill's grounder get by him, allowing Fred Lewis to score from second. Chris Perez then served up a two-run homer to Adam Lind to give the Jays the go-ahead and, essentially, the game.

...

Although Perez and Valbuena handled the postgame procedures well, the fact of the matter is the Indians are now 1-5 on this homestand and had a potential confidence-builder stripped out of their hands in the final inning.

"Tough loss, tough series, tough homestand so far," manager Manny Acta said. "There's nothing more discouraging than battling for eight or 8 2/3 innings and then not winning the ballgame."

Tribe bungles way to another loss

By Sheldon Ocker
Beacon Journal staff writer

POSTED: 08:46 p.m. EDT, May 05, 2010

CLEVELAND: The Indians' affinity for losing might have entered a new phase Wednesday afternoon, although the last thing the Tribe needs is to master another technique for falling on its sword.

...

And the more the Indians lose, the more adept they are becoming at finishing second to the opposing club.

''I feel bad because there were two outs, and it was a routine ground ball,'' Valbuena said. ''If I make that play, they don't score.''

Then there was another member of the losing team, Perez, who examined his contribution to the defeat. The most obvious question: Was he upset by the error, or did his concentration stray from the hitter after the misplay?

''That's why I went to the mound,'' Acta said. ''He said, 'I'm fine. Let's get the next guy.' ''

10-17 below .400 as usual for Manny

never his fault and everything is "tough", perhaps if he realized what an uninspiring finger pointer he was, it wouldn't be so tough

"Tough loss, tough series, tough homestand so far," manager Manny Acta said. "There's nothing more discouraging than battling for eight or 8 2/3 innings and then not winning the ballgame."

I's tale joo guys I's ri' boud Husstain Korns guy.

Alexandria, Va.: The team looks really smart for making the bold move of Desmond at SS over Guzie (and real kudos to Guzman for being an exemplary team player in this). The team has to feel really good about short.

But that move was more than offset by the debacle in right. Inexcusable to enter the season with a key hitting spot in that shape. Hopefully the team moves forward with Maxwell/Berni getting a real chance to see what they can do.

Tom Boswell: Actually, there is a RF with good range, a great arm, a perfect team attitude, experience, a track record as a power hitter, but who is only 29. He's currently hiting .346 with a dozen extra base hits after having three significant injuries fixed during the off-season __thumb surgery, a stress fracture in the ankle and bone chips in the right elbow.

That would be...hmmm...Austin Kearns, now playing RF for Manny Acta in Cleveland. The Nats paid him $1M to go away rather than pick up a 410M team option for '10.

One person who called Kearns in the winter, kept telling him to get in great shape and make a big comeback because his best years were still ahead of him was __Jim Rigglemn. Even though he knew Kearns wasn't coming back to washington.

The Indians jumped on Kearns pretty fast, signng him 1/5/10. I thinkl the Nats, in theory, could have bought out his option and resigned him later. Actually, Rizzo said late last year that if he could get Kearns back cheaply, he'd consider doing it as a 4th OF. He mentioned, "If we could get him for maybe $1M." The Indians, I guess, were quicker. They got him for $750,000.

Not blaming the Nats. Who could have seen this one. But a nice story. Unless you look at Maxwell try to hit a tough RHer.

Bumbling Indians extend losing streak

By Sheldon Ocker
Beacon Journal sports writer

POSTED: 07:44 p.m. EDT, May 08, 2010

CLEVELAND: That's five in a row and seven of eight, folks.

Nobody who follows the Indians needs to ask five what or seven what. Losses, of course. The Tribe has played only 28 games, but the pattern is clear.

Can it change? Sure, but right now the club is getting in its own way, beating itself with walks and defensive lapses. That was the story again Saturday, as the Detroit Tigers triumphed 6-4 at Progressive Field.

Justin Masterson was more victim than perpetrator, giving up three runs in six innings. He made one bad pitch that Scott Sizemore swatted for a three-run double in the fourth inning. That's on Masterson.

But fill-in shortstop Luis Valbuena failed to make a play on Brandon Inge's ground ball in the hole to load the bases. The play was properly ruled a hit, because it required more than ordinary effort. But a more accomplished shortstop would have caught the ball (which Valbuena did) and thrown to second to force the runner at first for the second out.

Manager Manny Acta disagreed, saying that all Valbuena could have done was keep the ball from rolling into the outfield. But Acta has a vested interest in boosting the flagging confidence of his everyday second baseman, who is subbing for the injured Asdrubal Cabrera.

...

In the eighth inning, Valbuena committed his fourth error in the past three games (all at shortstop), which gave the Tigers their sixth and final run.

''He bobbled the ball inside his glove,'' Acta said. ''He just took too long.''

Tribe Notebook: Acta isn't ready to change roster

By Sheldon Ocker
Beacon Journal sports writer

POSTED: 10:04 p.m. EDT, May 06, 2010

For now, the Indians are prepared to stay the course with the current roster.

With a 10-17 record, the Tribe could hardly have anticipated a worse start, but baseball's conventional wisdom demands patience. Fortunes can turn quickly over a 162-game season, and jumping to conclusions triggered by the emotions of the moment can end up being disastrous.

The question is how much of the season should elapse before General Manager Mark Shapiro and manager Manny Acta begin to alter the roster?

Asked if the club was contemplating changes, Acta issued a flat, ''No.''

Reinforcing his thinking, Acta said this about Luis Valbuena, whose critical error in the ninth inning led to the Toronto Blue Jays' 5-4 win on Wednesday.

''We don't make decisions on one good play or one bad play,'' Acta said. ''I wasn't going to put him in the Hall of Fame after he hit that two-out double in the eighth to drive in a run.

''You sit back. You don't react to a game like this. That's why we don't send guys down after 20 to 30 at-bats.''

...

The past two games, Valbuena has looked uncomfortable at short, which isn't surprising since he is the Tribe's everyday second baseman. Last year, he played 28 games at short and committed five errors. Asked how the game Wednesday might affect Valbuena, Acta said, ''It's not going to help his confidence. But all we can do is talk to him and have him get ready for Friday.''

BAD TIMING

Many managers would welcome a day off after losing 10 of the past 14 games. Acta has a different take.

''It's not a good time when you lose,'' he said. ''I really don't like losing before a day off. It doesn't matter if we're on a long winning streak or a long losing streak, winning before a day off is nice. It's beautiful.''

HE'S SEEN WORSE

Acta isn't looking for sympathy, despite the team's awful start following the optimism that goes with coming to a new organization.

''Worst-case scenario?'' he said. ''I guess you don't know my track record. I know what I signed up for, and it's a long season.''

Before coming to Cleveland, Acta spent 21/2 years as manager of the lowly Washington Nationals, so the Tribe's struggles are nothing new to him.

''These guys are going to come around, and we're going to play better,'' he said. ''What are we, five, six games under .500? We have a lot of games left. I've had worse ones [starts] before, believe me.''

Well the Nats RF outfileders combined are hitting .140 this year. Even Kearns at .200 would be an improvement. My problem is that the team paid Kearns to "walk", waited until the season started to let Dukes go, and are now stuck with nobody to play RF that can hit(Harris is good as a 4th, but can't seem to be consistent). We keep hearing "plan" and I say whay kind of "plan" is that?

Who cares. 16-14. Suck on it and like it babycakes. I see where your boy Acta (Bowden's hire) is really tearing it up in Cleeflen. Maybe you can extoll the virtues of Mark Shapiro, the Indians GM while you're at it. I just sent Bruce Drennan an e-mail for his Sports Time Ohio blog. He was writing about the Oscars, but I was focused on Manny. Maybe we'll get a different kind of rant soon. I hope so, because the world deserves it. 'And this is what Manny Acta looks like in the dugout (wooden indian). And Russell Branyan!!!!!!!!!!!!!'

Dig the long ball? Punchless Cleveland Indians hardly ever see one
By Dennis Manoloff, The Plain Dealer
May 10, 2010, 8:10PM


The Tribe is 11-18 thanks in part to a significant power outage. It entered Monday ranked 28th in the majors with 15 homers. Only Houston (13) and Seattle (12) had fewer. The Blue Jays led with 50, followed by Boston, the White Sox and Arizona with 43.

Granted, the Indians have played the fewest games, and have the fewest at-bats, of any team. But their average of .52 HRs per game still ranked 28th. The Blue Jays were averaging 1.5.

...

Center fielder Sizemore is the biggest mystery of all. He averaged 27 homers over a four-year stretch (2005-08), then hit 18 in an injury-plagued and shortened 2009. He seems to be 100 percent physically, but is hitting .213 with six doubles and two triples in 27 games.

Omar Minaya, who is a personal friend of mine, had told me multiple times how strongly he felt about Manny, so when we had an opening, I called Omar and talked to him at length.

MS: I think that he would have. It’s obviously a tremendous positive that he has an understanding, and appreciation, for the objective side of the game, because that is part of how we make decisions here. That allows us to involve him in that part of the process even more. But as long as he was open-minded to it, I don’t think he necessarily would have had to have an understanding of it to be a candidate here. But it does make it easier to have a more thorough discussion with him about our decision-making process. I think that the first time it struck us was when we were talking about one of our relievers and Manny said, “Did you see his batting average on balls in play last year? He not only said that, he used the acronym and we’re not used to hearing that come from someone in a uniform. So it’s part of the process, and while it doesn’t drive our process, it’s certainly an important part and it allows him—he’s looking at Pitch-f/x data—to better understand decisions. The more a manager understands decisions, the more vested in those decisions he is.

Wood falters in relief bid vs. Royals

By Anthony Castrovince / MLB.com
CLEVELAND -- Justin Masterson is still looking for his first win, and Kerry Wood is still looking for his first save.

Masterson limited the damage done to him by the Royals, but he only lasted five innings Wednesday night. This was a battle of the bullpens, and it was a battle the Indians lost, 8-4, because Wood imploded when asked to protect a one-run lead in the ninth.

...

Wood served up a leadoff triple to Aviles and was immediately in trouble. He made a diving stop to his left of a DeJesus slow-roller, but dropped the ball, leaving runners on the corners. Billy Butler then doubled off the right-field wall to bring home Aviles with the tying run.

It got worse for Wood one out later, after he intentionally walked Alberto Callaspo to load the bases. He walked Maier to bring home the go-ahead run for the Royals, then served up a three-run double to Yuniesky Betancourt to make it 8-4. He disgustedly tossed his glove into the stands as the small crowd roundly booed him.

I guess Manny Acta is the best manager for this Indians club because he knows how to deal with a lot of losing. And there is going to be a lot of losing this year. Hope for some good performances out of some of the individual veterans (Peralta, Kearns, Grunz, Wood, Marte) and maybe we can trade them for some prospects by the trade deadline. There isn't any other rational thing to do. There won't be many crowds more than 10,000 anyway so why try to build fan interest. That is all that is left in 2010 for this pitiful, horrible franchise.

When Talbot was in trouble early, did Belcher or Marson go out to settle him down. NO! Did Acta leave him in there to suffer after a obviously bad outing? YES!
How long do we wait for Santana? Until his potential arbitration deadline comes into fruitition. Marson has 1 RBI. Why is he still catching?

Why are the Washington Nationals suddenly a winning ball team?
Because Acta has poor judgement. He can't make the right decisions.
Why do we keep playing Laporta day after day after day?
Why is Valbuena playing at all?
Why is Branyan even on this team?
Because Acta can't make the correct player assessments.. that's why.

That's because most people can - put a Chief Wahoo cap on FredieMac45's head and the Inyuns would probably go on a 6 game winning streak. Takes work to continually be under .400 in this league.

Asdrubal Cabrera facing surgery and Grady Sizemore getting MRI: Cleveland Indians Insider
By Paul Hoynes, The Plain Dealer
May 19, 2010



ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Aside from the pay and the hotel suites on the road, it's not always fun to be a big-league manager.

Manny Acta doesn't let baseball frustrate him, but he had one of those days Tuesday at Tropicana Field. First he told reporters that shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera will be in Baltimore today to have his broken left forearm examined by Dr. Thomas Graham. He said there was a strong possibility that Cabrera would need surgery after colliding with third baseman Jhonny Peralta on Monday night.

So there goes Acta's starting shortstop for a good chunk of time, if not the season.

Then he said center fielder Grady Sizemore, who missed his second straight game with a bruised left knee, will get an MRI today in Cleveland.

On top of that, the Rays completed a two-game sweep of the Indians with a 6-2 victory Tuesday afternoon.

"Life is tough," said Acta. "Get a double-flap helmet and wear it."

S'too-ational heeding...I don't even think Manny knows what the term means. Seems like he just uses it in general terms to relate to a failed performance every time one of his teams doesn't hit w/ men in scoring position.

WHAT an ASS. Somebody once said "you play the game to WIN". Regardless of circumstances, level of talent, injuries, et al-for your manager to suggest to PAYING customer's of a MAJOR LEAGUE team that "we don't keep count here-that's YOUR job"-beyond insulting, it's pathetic. Why would a single one of you pay a nickel to see a team that is managed by such a complete and utter condescending LOSER.
(except perhaps "truetribefan", who just doesn't get what it's all about in terms of product-some of us have followed the Indians win/lose since 1970 but for THIS Dolan/Shapiro/ACTA fasade.

Acta's nonchalance in regards to results (or ALWAYS attemtping for such) along with his lame sitting in the dugout instead of firing up his team when horrific calls are made, with his rookie/flunky coaching staff-WAKE UP CLEVELAND.

Tribe on wrong end on a couple of calls

NEW YORK -- In manager Manny Acta's tabulation, first-base umpire CB Bucknor was 2-for-4 in close calls at first base on Friday night at Yankee Stadium.

It just so happened that Bucknor's two missed calls both hurt the Tribe. The first was when Robinson Cano was erroneously ruled safe on an infield single in the second. Replays showed shortstop Jason Donald's throw beat Cano to the bag by a step. Cano wound up scoring on a Nick Swisher home run.

In the seventh, with one on, two out and the Indians trailing, 4-2, Donald was called out on a grounder to first, when Mark Teixeira flipped the ball to Phil Hughes. This time, replays showed that Donald's foot hit the bag before the ball hit Hughes' glove. Instead, it was the final out of the inning.

Acta didn't come out to argue either call.

"He is who he is," Acta said of Bucknor. "You've just got to live with it. Sometimes it goes on your side, sometimes it goes against you. He was 2-for-4 against us. You can't fight City Hall."

"They must have eaten the wrong ones," she said, displaying the cutting edge all true Indians fans have.

Just watched the 9th inning of the Detroit-Cleveland game. Armando Galarraga had a perfect game going for Detroit through 2 outs in the 9th, saved by a great catch by Austin Jackson in CF. The 27th Cleveland batter hit a grounder to first, fielded by Miguel Cabrera, who flipped to Galarraga in time for the final out, but the umpire called the runner safe. Replay clearly showed the runner out. Galarraga just smiled, gathered himself, and got the next hitter to ground out to short for a 1-hit shutout. That ump better get security to escort him to the parking lot.

Manny's modeling himself after a college (essentially amateur) coach who coached an entirely different sport and whose successes and relationships with his players predated him by 30 years. I haven't read Wooden's book, but I can't imagine that there's too much the old man has to impart could possibly translate into much of anything useful in terms of MLB in the 21st Century. Further proof that Manny is a) certifiably braindead or b) simply trying to latch onto a philosophy that sounds good to others, in lieu of the fact that he lacks enough imagination to create his own. Or both....

Losses aside, managing under National League rules 'fun' for Indians' Manny Acta

Gene J. Puskar / Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- The Indians haven't played well under National League rules in the first third of this nine-game trip through Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Cincinnati. Losing two out of three games in a series between last-place teams over the weekend probably said more about the Indians than it did the Pirates.

Still, there's no denying it's a different game when the designated hitter sits and the pitcher has to bat. The Pirates series produced situations manager Manny Acta wouldn't have faced, or may have handled differently, in the American League.

...

Part of the Indians' strategy going into this stretch of interleague games was to find the best spots possible to use Hafner as a pinch-hitter.

"We're always trying to figure out a way to get Pronk to the plate with runners in scoring position," said bench coach Tim Tolman. "When you have a full-time DH, who is a big part of our offense and we're not able to use him, we want to make sure we use him right."

In Saturday's 6-4 loss, that spot arrived in the sixth inning. Russell Branyan's three-run homer had cut the Pirates' lead to 5-4. There were two outs, but the bases were loaded. That's when Acta pinch-hit Hafner for losing pitcher David Huff.

"I thought it was perfect for Haf," said Acta. "They had to pitch to him. They had nowhere to put him. We didn't have to double switch. It was just perfect."

Re: OT: Manny All Set In Cleeflen! - 22/06/2010 03:56

Quote:
In the eighth, with the Indians still trailing, 5-4, Jhonny Peralta doubled with one out. Acta, with rookie catcher Carlos Santana available to pinch-hit, kept him on the bench. Instead Anderson Hernandez pinch-hit for Luis Valbuena and struck out. Mike Redmond, who started at catcher, lined out to right to end the inning.

Acta said he didn't want to take a chance of the Pirates walking Santana with first base open to face the eighth and ninth hitters in the lineup.

Quote:
After playing 64 games under AL rules, where the biggest decisions for a manager are when to remove his starter and how to use the bullpen, managing and coaching in the NL is a kick.

"I'd go as far as to say it's exhilarating," said Tolman.

We've known all along that the Indians are toast this year; might as well get some nutritional value out of it. The Pangea Cleveland Indians ProToast Toaster sells for $34.99. Which, coincidentally, is about the same as this year's Tribe payroll. Which, in turn, explains soooooo much about Cleveland's 26-42 record.

Moron. Wouldn't want to instill any pride or foster a winning mentality, now would he? Nah... Might as well lay down their guns and march right off the cliff. MF'er must think he's still coaching in the GCL, only he's not...he's trying to run another developmental program at the ML level and he sucks at it.

It's not as if they have any winning to get caught up in anyway. They've lost 5 straight, 9 of the last ten, and are 19 below .500. Mannyesque, indeed. Why anyone still thinks this clown is ML managerial material is totally beyond the scope of imagination.

It was just the third time in Acta's career that he has been ejected. It happened once in 2007 and once in '09, when he was managing the Nationals.

"Look at my record," Acta said. "I'm probably one of the easiest guys for them to deal with over the years, and what do I get? Take my hat off and get thrown out of the game, right off the bat?"

But it wasn't the lack of respect Acta felt he was shown that bothered him nearly as much as the perceived lack of respect the rookie Donald was shown on that call.

"It's sad," Acta said "I know [the umpires] are human and all that. But I've been doing rebuilding jobs for four years, and these kids don't get the benefit of the doubt by those guys. If they don't know these kids' names, they don't get a fair shake. I don't care what anybody says. I've seen it for four years. I'm not supposed to criticize them publicly. I just got the letter.

Well, shiver me timbers......Manny got pissed. I'll give him a C+ at best, though. Almost any other manager would have gone completely batsh*t for 5 full minutes....4 of 'em telling Tim Tschida and his crew how bad they suck, Wally Backman-style....

The Indians have designated Anderson Hernandez for assignment, according to Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com (via Twitter). The move was made in order to clear a spot for 22-year-old right-handed pitcher Jeanmar Gomez.

The switch-hitting infielder struggled at the plate with Cleveland this season, hitting .246/.270/.295 in 63 plate appearances. This marks the second time this season that Hernandez has been DFA'd by the Tribe.

Fan wears LeBron's Heat jersey at Indians game
Man escorted out of park after hundreds of fans boo, chant obscenities

CLEVELAND - A fan wearing a Miami Heat jersey of LeBron James drew the ire of the crowd at a Cleveland Indians game and was escorted out of the ballpark.

Fans in the left-field bleachers chanted obscenities and pointed at the man Wednesday night during the sixth inning of the game between the Indians and New York Yankees. Hundreds of fans joined in before security led the man out of Progressive Field.

As he left, some fans followed him toward the gate with more derisive chants.

Manny update:


Link




Manny got the boot today in a 3-0 loss to the M's after the 2B ump ruled that Tribe SS Asdrubal Cabrera missed the bag on a force out at second in the 5th. Saw the clip on MLBN and it looked to me like he didn't argue that much to get the hook. Read the Tribe fan's comment to the article 'bout Manny's reaction to ump's call at second... sound familiar?


Quote:
Of all Manny's traits, the one that grates me to no end is his aversion to get his lazy ass off the bench and actually question an umpire's call.
You could see as he reluctantly trotted out on the field on Cabrera's non-forceout call that the second-base ump had no worries of being berated. "Gee, Mr. Umpire, wasn't my shortstop's foot on the bag? No? OK."
Not OK to Asdrubal, who must have realized that the only person on the field who would stick up for him was him, so he continued to argue. And only after he continued to argue did Manny turn around and offer some cover. And even his reaction to getting tossed was lame-o.
Whatever motivates Indians players, it's certainly can't be out of some sense of commitment to this manager. He never, ever has their back.
And this, to me, is a fireable offense.

Hey, every manager has his own approach...Manny reads self help books and preens his vagina. Riggleman goes out of his way to please by doling out PT, whether or not it's been earned.

God, what I wouldn't give to have Wally Backman suit up in DC. They'd win 100 games, no matter what garbage he inherited for a roster, and as a bonus, he'd probably make it a point to call Kasten three times a week just to tell him to go f*ck himself. Sign him, put this pic on the cover of Inside Pitch, and away we go, baby....

He also breaks out the knee pads anytime he gets a question about LernerStanK.

After one manager who sat in the dugout like he was dead, and another who appears to be brain dead, I'd actually like to see what Billy Martin could do managing this team from the grave.

As bad as this offseason has been, at least we're not in Cleveland. From ESPN:

Quote:
Over the past two years, the Indians have also done their share to stoke the city's reputation as Depression Central. They ranked last in the majors in attendance with 1.39 million fans last season, and posted consecutive 90-loss seasons for the first time since 1914 and 1915 -- when a kid named Shoeless Joe Jackson was roaming the outfield at League Park in Cleveland.

Anyone who thought the Indians might spend their way out of their doldrums failed to get the memo. The team's only big league free-agent contract this offseason has gone to outfielder Austin Kearns for a grand total of $1.3 million. While the Detroit Tigers spent $50 million on Victor Martinez, the Chicago White Sox signed Adam Dunn and the Kansas City Royals hastened their long-term rebuild with a bold trade that sent Zack Greinke to Milwaukee, the Indians have had a more boring winter than manager Manny Acta's barber.

There have been regression algorithms that measure how much a good vs. a cr@p manager matters.
Don't know if they have measured Manny. If they have, I know what it said. 99.9 on the crapometer side.

And to the other question. We work every day at being boring. We are after all, Midwesterners.
Actually, the list of Cleveland assets is too long to mention.
Our list of crap sports teams is, however, short. NBA, NFL, MLB. Did I miss anything?

Tracy Ringolsby's article 'What has happened to the Indians?' describes how the Indians went from the model franchise in baseball to one of the worst-run operations in the last decade. Seems like a perfect fit for Manny...






Quote:
It isn't a pretty picture in Cleveland.

And to think, for a seven-year stretch, from 1995 through 2001, the Indians were what other teams wanted to be. They were a home-grown champion. Six times, they advanced to the post-season. They surpassed the 3 million attendance mark six times. In 1995, they won their first AL pennant in 41 years.

The ugliness of the 1960s and '70s and first half of the `80s was eradicated.
New life was pumped into downtown Cleveland. Lake Erie was cleaned up. And the Indians were a factor on the field.

The fans responded. The Indians set what was then a major league record with 455 consecutive sellouts from June 12, 1995 to April 4, 2001. The ticket demand was so strong that in three of the seasons during that streak the Indians sold every ticket for the season before Opening Day.

Now look at them.

when i worked in baltimore there was a guy in the office who just moved there from south carolina. this guy thought that baltimore was some pearl, a gem of a city, and he complained & complained about how inferior DC was (insert 2,684 muttleys here please).

funny thing is, later on South Carolina boy gets a job working for the Koons Auto Group. he told me how ironic it was that he was working for Koons - although if yas know whadimean he didn't spell it that way (yes, i was shocked & disgusted at the not-so-thinly veiled hate).

speaking of, remember couple years ago that WahooX guy who burned up an 8 page thread, getting all worked up because no wonder understood the beauty of baltimore? yep, that's right, he's a moderator now at the bibbychee o's board. now if only there's a way we can trade dcnatsatbat to another imb.

Natsman,
Like your sig.
I make it a principle to not get into arguing relative merits of teams or cities. Especially in someone else's house. It always ends up similar to the contribution being made by your image.
Griff's link pretty much sums up out team. They had a chance about two years ago to spend some money to buttress the several good players we had, Lee, Sizemore, Martinez, a couple of other pitchers & perhaps three up and coming kids- - -
Instead they gave away all but one of the biggies for next to nothing - even though mostly their cheap contracts still had more than a year to go. So last year we were crap, the fans noticed, & after the run of sellouts, dropped the team to dead last in attendance.
A few kids show promise this year, but if we are still competitive by mid-May I'll be astonished.
As a friend on the Pirates board points out, could be worse. We could be Pittsburgh.

Manny likes Foreigner. And as I predicted last month, it is no wonder he relates to a band with that name.

phil wood, a question: you know all that "you heathens should not question the judgement of baseball men" lecture of yours? would you mind then telling Mr. Puss'teef Addydude to STFU, and leave the music critic stuff to experienced musical professionals.

notice you always have manny singing songs with vacuous, banal lyrics. never any songs about social protest, or anything resembling provocative, substantive lyrics. it's as if you believe a dominican is incapable of addressing anything that's intellectual. or high brow.

that boat of yours that advocates unbridled fornicating. attacks on stat geeks. the cynicism towards the lerners. and this. no wonder yer driving posters away from here.

Quote:
The fans, realizing the storm is too intense to leave the protection of the overhang, are talking Cleveland Indians baseball with John Adams. He is the sage of Indians' fandom, hauling his weathered bass drum to the bleachers' top row for the last 38 years. He has attended more than 3,000 Indians games.
"I thought I've seen it all," says Adams, emptying the water from his $25 drum, "but I never saw this happening. You kidding?"
The Indians can't save the troubled Cleveland economy, bring back LeBron James or put the football back into the hands of Browns running back Earnest Byner. But they are helping this city forget its troubles with a stirring start to the season, sitting in first place in the American League Central with baseball's best record at 26-13.
"We don't need the King to rock this town," Indians second baseman Orlando Cabrera says of James. "We can do it ourselves. It's great to bring pride back to this city.
...
The Indians say they were convinced during spring training that this indeed would be their year, buying into manager Manny Acta's impassioned speech on the first day of camp.
Acta, in his second season with the Indians, told them to forget they had the fourth-youngest team (average age of 27.7 based on their opening-day roster) and fifth-lowest payroll ($49.1 million). It didn't matter that they projected to have only two starting position players earning more than $1 million, or that Fausto Carmona was the only starting pitcher making more than $469,000.
"I told them just because we're young and have a low payroll," Acta says, "it doesn't mean we're rebuilding. The redshirt year is over."

Yanks, Indians clear benches
By Mike Mazzeo
Special to ESPNNewYork.com



NEW YORK -- New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi and Cleveland Indians manager Manny Acta engaged in a shouting match and had to be separated after first baseman Mark Teixeira was hit in the right shoulder by starter Fausto Carmona in the bottom of the second inning on Friday night at Yankee Stadium, causing both benches and bullpens to empty onto the field.

After center fielder Curtis Granderson blasted a mammoth solo home run into the second deck in right field, giving the Yankees a 4-0 lead, Carmona drilled Teixeira up high on the following pitch, prompting a war of words between the two as a clearly animated and agitated Teixeira walked to first base after falling to the dirt in agony and slamming his helmet down. Teixeira appeared to yell "Throw the ball over the plate!" to Carmona as he walked to first.

Both benches cleared and met on the right side of the infield. Girardi and Acta came face to face in the middle of it all and began to exchange verbal barbs. Eventually, players from both teams stepped in to separate the two and both teams returned to their respective dugouts.

No punches were thrown, and no one was ejected.

Coming into his at-bat against Carmona, Teixeira had been 8-for-18 (.444) off of him with a home run and four walks.

It was the seventh time Teixeira had been hit by a pitch this season. He was also hit in the knee Tuesday by Boston Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester.

Indians manager Manny Acta upset over lack of ejection, umpire's missed call
Published: Sunday, August 21, 2011, 8:00 PM     Updated: Sunday, August 21, 2011, 8:45 PM
By David Mayo | The Grand Rapids Press

DETROIT -- Manny Acta and the Cleveland Indians left Detroit three games poorer in their playoff pursuit and rankled at several things that happened in Sunday’s 8-7 Tigers win.

Acta, the Indians’ manager, was miffed Rick Porcello was not ejected after throwing a pitch behind Asdrubal Cabrera, moments after the Cleveland shortstop hit a long foul ball.

"I thought that was handled very poorly, myself," Acta said. "Everybody, including the vendors in this stadium, knew he was throwing at him. If you know he threw at him, that shouldn’t be a warning. You should be thrown out of the game."

Acta said he is "not impressed" by American League pitchers throwing at opponents because they don’t have to hit for themselves.

"I don’t condone it from my guys," Acta said. "I don’t condone it from anybody else. To put somebody in jeopardy because a guy is just standing there looking at a foul ball? It was a foul ball."

...

Acta also was disappointed in yet another poor pitching performance by Ubaldo Jimenez, who was the Indians’ big trade-deadline acquisition, but has not fared well in three of his four outings since the deal with Colorado.

"He’s not making pitches and he’s better than that," Acta said. "I know that and he knows that."

Well, I suppose if a thread full of inane crap on some obscure internet message board can get 100,000 hits, this guy could have a fighting chance at 100,000 signatures.

I can't say that I care for his attitude, though. He should remain positive and remember that the Indians battle and work very, very hard.

Some webcrawler must be hitting this constantly, because it was 25 under 100000 last night, about a half hour later it wa 40 over, and now it's already 240-odd over.

Did you see that infrared shot they had when one of the batters got hit? Left a heat mark on his leg. If you had an infrared camera and you were shooting my balls from across the way, motherf*ckers would look like tangelos. Small tangerines.

< This can't go on. It's outrageous. The top 1% of earners almost tripled their incomes in 3 decades between 1979 and 2007 according to the CBO. And, of course, we can't ask them to pay their fair share of taxes in order to increase revenues in this country.

I think this is a big year for Manny Acta. Even though his option was picked up, he has to have this team ready to contend and win the Central. If the Tribe shows little improvement or regresses, then Manny might end up on the hot seat with Sandy waiting in the wings.

Is this somehow an indication that one day all internet traffic will pass directly through BPG? **muttley**

At any rate, I for one am fascinated by this phenomenon. At the same time, though, I continue to mourn the loss of the Metrodome thread, which was snatched away from us malevolently by our former moderator.

http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index.php/manny-acta-five-scouting-reports/

Quote:
The Indians lack depth, but there’s no disputing that Cleveland has a promising core group of young position players. The foursome of Asdrubal Cabrera, Lonnie Chisenhall, Jason Kipnis and Carlos Santana range in age from 23 to 26, and each has the potential to become a perennial All-Star. Indians skipper Manny Acta shared his thoughts on each of them, as well as on 29-year-old Shin-Soo Choo.

——

Acta on second baseman Jason Kipnis: “This guy is just a full package of energy. He’s a really competitive kid that can swing the bat and is not intimidated at all. Everybody knew that whenever he got up to the big leagues he was going to be able to compete offensively, and he showed that.

“He sees pitches and knows the strike zone very well. Left-handed pitchers don’t bother him; he hangs in there very well against them. He’s not afraid to bunt or to run. He’s aggressive on the bases.

“I actually labeled him last year as being between Dustin Pedroia and Chase Utley. I don’t want this to get misinterpreted — he reminds me of those guys. On the offensive side, as a left-handed hitter, I look at what Utley has done. The defense that Pedroia brings — he’s still not there, because he hasn’t had the time and the experience to be at that level. But I think he’s between those guys with what he’s probably going to be able to accomplish. He’s going to be in double digits for home runs and he’s going able to hit a ton of doubles and score a ton of runs. He’s just gritty and gutsy, playing the game all around like those two guys are.”

“We know that he’s a work-in-progress, defensively. He does show tremendous range. He’s a very good athlete. I can see this guy being an above-average second baseman someday.

This whole concept is brilliant in its simplicity/ simple in its brilliance, etc....Been around awhile, not naive, but you're the first I've heard make mention of regular mooching like this. Kudos, sir, and highly BPG-like in its nature. I'd try it myself, only I'm not much of a breakfast eater. If these places ever start trotting out the free afternoon sandwich fare though, I'll be all over it.

Indians pitcher Fausto Carmona arrested over false identity; may be age 31, not 28
January 20, 2012

By Paul Hoynes, The Plain Dealer



CLEVELAND, Ohio — Fausto Carmona, we hardly knew you. No, really, we hardly knew you.

Carmona, the Indians' Opening Day starting pitcher last year, is reportedly named Roberto Hernandez Heredia. What's more, Carmona allegedly isn't 28, as listed in the Indians' 2011 media guide. He could be as old as 31.

All this came to light Thursday, when Carmona was arrested outside the U.S. Consulate in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, after he applied for a visa so he could report to spring training Feb. 20 with Indians pitchers and catchers. Authorities from the Dominican Republic reportedly accused Carmona of using a false identity in an attempt to obtain a visa.

Jacqueline Lamarche, spokeswoman for the Dominican attorney general, said Thursday night that charges could be brought against Carmona today.

She wouldn't speculate on when he would be released from custody.

Indians General Manager Chris Antonetti said: "We were recently made aware of the situation that occurred in the Dominican Republic and are currently in the process of gathering information. We are not prepared to make any additional comment at this time."

The Indians, Carmona's agent, Bean Stringfellow, Major League Baseball and the players association are trying to gather as many facts as possible. Said one person involved in the process, "This is a mess."



The Indians are faced with their equivalent dilemma of the Nats' Esmailyn Gonzalez, the Dominican shortstop who lied about his age and identity. When the Nats failed to land FA Cliff Lee last offseason or Zack Greinke via trade, they showed some interest in acquiring Carmona. Sometimes the best moves are moves that aren't made.

Acta confident Indians will contend

By Tom Withers, Associated Press
Published: Thursday, Jan. 26, 2012 7:31 p.m. MST


STRONGSVILLE, Ohio — Manny Acta was warmly greeted in the hallway by Slider, the Indians' pink mascot, who wrapped his furry arms around Cleveland's affable manager.

After the week he's had, Acta needed a hug.

First, Acta learned that pitcher Fausto Carmona, his countryman from the Dominican Republic and one of his starters, was arrested on charges he falsified his identity to play in the U.S. Then, the Indians, who have spent the winter trying to add a powerful bat to their lineup, got news that Prince Fielder, the biggest free-agent bat of them all, had signed with Detroit.

Suddenly, catching the Tigers in the AL got a whole lot tougher.

"I would have preferred him to sign somewhere else, but we can't worry about that," Acta said, smiling. "We have to worry about our ballclub getting better and taking the next step. So we'll just deal with it."

Acta and several of his players kicked off "Tribe on Tour" Thursday, a four-day event where the Indians will stop at shopping malls around Northeast Ohio and interact with their fans, some of whom are still reeling from Fielder's decision to sign a nine-year contract that will pay him at least $23 million per season until 2020.

The Indians don't have that kind of money to throw around — not now, and probably not ever. However, just because Fielder landed with the division champions, Acta's focus hasn't changed for 2012. Cleveland challenged for nearly five months last season before injuries caused them to fade.

Acta is confident his team will contend again.

"We know what we have and we know what we have to work with," Acta said. "Before the offseason started we weren't targeting the guy who signed with L.A. (Albert Pujols) and the guy who just signed with Detroit. We're just going to have to do it with our internal options. They played pretty well last year for 4 1/2 months so we have to keep them on the field and we have to take the next step and go from there.

"We can't sell dreams to people."

Indians manager Manny Acta told reporters at a Town Hall event today (including MLB.com's Jordan Bastian) that he wants the team to pick up another bat.  "I do hope that something happens," Acta said.  "Chris [Antonetti] has worked really hard...about trying to acquire a hitter or two. It's not a secret, we need some help offensively."  For his part, Antonetti said he was "hopeful that we'll be able to improve the team between now and the start of Spring Training," (all Twitter links).

was on this beatles board awhile back. they showed a pic of george harrison holding a candle in this cave. some beatles fan posts 'yes, he he's holding a candle for peace'. i replied 'he's holding a fvcking candle 'cos it's dark in caves, moron'. well, that set off a sh!t storm of protests. some dude replies to me 'john lennon died for peace, you jerk'. oh yeah, that must've been it.

it gets better: the muddyraider guy is an out-of-the-closet, card carrying pillow biting screamer, and yes, you guessed it, he drools over pics of the beatles. well, HE jumps in & starts ripping me, and after he got his feelings hurt he closed the thread.

Good to know you're spreading our special brand of BPG love and joy elsewhere on the internet, too. Maybe next time you're over there, you could copy and paste Manny's rendition of Get Back - then explain to them that this is what it sounds like when a certain Dominican baseball manager with three chins and a finger up his ass sings that tune.

"he's holding a fvcking candle 'cos it's dark in caves, moron"

I like the Beatles as much as anyone -- still listen to them to this day -- but the adulation and deification of Lennon, especially post-1980, was all a bit much. McCartney was just as talented, but never took himself all that seriously, so he got branded as a lightweight. Can't say much bad about Harrison except that the sitar solos went on too long most of the time. And Ringo...well, like Paul once said, he's not even the best drummer in the Beatles.

we both need to come back in our next lives as RNR stars.

clapton wanted geo harrison's wife, couldn't have her, so he shacked up instead with her sister. who later hooked up and married mick fleetwood. harrison eventually loses his wife to clapton, but later on not only sleeps with ron wood's wife, he also sleeps with clapton's 90s girlfriend. while married, clapton spent a good part of the 70s nailing his backing singer. and a few years later, he comes home and tells his wife "oh, must've forget to tell you this, but i have a 6 year old kid with this chick i was hosing while you and i were married then". and i will repeat this classic bippychee HOF story: clapton has a go-between make a marriage proposal to this chick, and has him tell her "either it's yes, or on yer bike". beautiful. a hallmark greeting card moment, right there. oh, and harrison also got caught sleeping with ringo's wife, btw.

these guys shoulda got into a frequent flyer program for their c0cks.

It's important to him that the world knows his thoughts, apparently....just like all of the other simpletons that use twitter to impart useless info to anyone willing to listen.

Maybe BPG should get in on the act on Twitter and Facebook. With some careful planning and the tech expertise of that old poster who stuffed the ballot for wj73, we could probably turn the whole f*cking internet on its ear within an hour or two.

Like a promise are you, are you.
Like a morning of summer.
Like a smile are you, are you!
Like (that), like (that), are you.

All my hope are you, are you.
Like rain fresh in my hands.
Like strong breeze are you, are you!
Like (that), like (that), are you.

Are you like the water of my fountain.
Are you the fire of my home.
Are you like the water of my fountain.
Are you the fire of my home.

Something like (that) are you, mmmm.
Something like ---- the fire of my hearth.
Something like (that) are you, oooo!

My Life, something like (that) are you.
Like my poem are you, are you.
Like a guitar in the night.
All my horizon are you, are you!
Like (that), like (that), are you.

Are you like the water of my fountain.
Are you the fire of my home.
Are you like the water of my fountain.
Are you the fire of my home.

Something like (that) are you, mmmm.
Something like ---- the fire of my hearth.
Something like (that) are you, oooo!

At 17, I was forcibly removed from my HS talent show audience over that tune. Dude was up on stage in a ruffly white shirt and white pants, crooning away, and I couldn't contain my amusement over the overt gayness on display. Pretty embarrassing when a teacher snatches you by the ear, holds you up in front of several hundred people, and gives you the boot. Still can't understand what I did wrong.....

New school in a nutshell. That sh*t never works, never will, and that's why I can't stand the guy. He bleats all this BS about people like Lombardi and Wooden and then he turns right around and handles his teams like they don't need him around because he's supposedly delegated the proper responsibilities to others at all levels of the organization. I remember him talking about that when he was here, as though he was the grand master or something. Yeah, in Fairytale Land. MF'er will never win anything but a GCL title unless someone is dumb enough to hand him the reigns of a team full of all stars that can't lose despite him being around. Douchebag.

Indians can't hold lead, drop historic opener
Against Jays, 'pen spoils 10-strikeout gem by Masterson

By Jordan Bastian / MLB.com
4/5/2012 8:23 PM ET


CLEVELAND -- The Indians believe they will have plenty of miracle finishes throughout the season ahead. The Tribe will have plenty of time to prove they can provide such heroics, but Thursday's grueling Opening Day affair belonged to the Blue Jays.

Cleveland closer Chris Perez was unable to hold down a ninth-inning lead, spoiling a strong performance by sinkerballer Justin Masterson, and sending the Indians on their way to a draining 7-4 loss to Toronto in 16 innings in front of a packed Progressive Field.

The 16-inning game marks the longest in Major League history on Opening Day. It surpassed two 15-inning affairs that occurred between Detroit at Cleveland in 1960 and Philadelphia at Washington in 1926.


Btw, this was my greatest fear going into the ninth today. They would be chipping me out with an ice pick. Either that, or I might have thawed out in a couple of decades when the Cubs are good.

Acta delivers simple pregame speech to club
By Jordan Bastian / MLB.com | 04/05/12 2:32 PM ET

CLEVELAND -- Indians manager Manny Acta headed into the team's clubhouse during Wednesday's workout and did his annual rallying of the troops. The manager smirked when asked about the speech he delivered to his players.

"Not a speech," Acta said on Thursday. "I had a team meeting."

Acta said his message to Cleveland's players was
"That whatever happened last year, it's in the past," Acta said. "That we need to continue to play good baseball and be consistent throughout the whole season and make sure that you work hard and prepare yourself. Hold your teammates accountable. Things like that. Nothing out of the ordinary. This group has been together for a while now. They know what we expect and what this city expects. Go get 'em."

This was not "an appropriate time to hand the ball off to Perez" as this article suggests. Masterson had plenty left to handle the Blue Jays hitters for one more inning on a cold day, and he showed no reason to think otherwise. Perez had a limited spring and was not ready (he'll never be ready in my opinion... just look at last year). It disgusts me that Acta fluffs it off as "just a game". It was a sell out! Opening day! Fans took off from work and school and payed good money. They deserved better. Acta blew it, and he should take responsibility. This new baseball wisdom that dictates it necessary to bring in your closer to relieve the starter all the time doesn't work. Kinda like the "prevent defense" in football. And finally, I hope we don't wait too long to realize that C. Perez is not a good closer (it should be pretty obvious) or it will be a very long season.

Manny Acta is the WORST, Sorry-ass excuse for a manager I have ever seen i MLB.  He does just about everything wrong.  Handling the pitching staff is his worst fault.  Acta should have left it up to Masterson whether he has enough gas left in the tank to go out in the ninth inning.  Any moron knew Perez wasn't ready to pitch and close a BIG game.
The offense is mediocre, at best, and a good manager must use his best players and high percentage strategies that will help score runs.
What's wrong with a '"squeeze play" with a ma on third ?  Teach all your stiffs how to lay down a good bunt you dispicable manager !!!

I am really tired of managers that act like robots. If all you have to do is look in a book to tell you what to do in a particular situation, give me the book and I'll manage the team. Acta gets paid to think, not act like a robot. This was a very disappointing outcome. The team needed this win and Masterson deserved the W. I hope we don't see more of this type of managing. Reminds me of Hargrove pulling Anderson in Game 7 after Anderson put down the Marlins in order in the 8th. Go with the hot hand!

terrible move. that is why Acta was the worse hire for the job. if he was a real manager he would have made it work with players last year to make the playoffs, instead he inticed the trade for Jimenez and gave up 2 young live arms to do it. He has no managerial skills and personnel management. I still believe a skilled manager would have made the proper changes with the players last year to make the run..... this move was just a carry over from his time with the Nationals. I live in DC now and people are thankful he was fired.

Familiar story. Manny counts pitches. To 100. Then he pulls his pitcher no matter what. If he has to count any higher than that, he gets even more confused than he already is to begin with.

Cleeflen loses in only 12 innings today.

Improvement.

Quote:
"I'll take this over the first two games from last year," said Indians manager Manny Acta, who pounded his fist on his desk for emphasis. "We gave up 14 runs in the first three innings [on Opening Day 2011]. We had a chance to win both of these games. You've got to like that better."

Acta is known for doing all he can to sift through the wreckage to find any positives.


Quote:
"We're doing some things right," Acta said. "When you have two hits and you're playing baseball in the 12th inning, it means you're doing some stuff right. We're pitching and catching the ball well. We just haven't been able to break out offensively. But, it's only two games."

Acta said it is still far too early to become overly concerned about the offense.

"You just have to stay positive and continue to encourage the guys," Acta said. "Four games is not going to define the offense of a ballclub. That's all there is to it. It's kind of early still. We'd rather have six or seven runs every day on the board, but it hasn't happened.

"We're pitching good, so that gives us time to wait until our offense gets going."

Quote:
CLEVELAND -- There is a risk involved in evaluating a team only a handful of games into a season. After baseball's long winter, and following the misleading nature of Spring Training, the results of the regular season's first few games are examined under a microscope.

Right now, things do not look pretty for the Indians.

On Wednesday afternoon, Cleveland's search party returned with the offense that had gone missing, but it did not matter in a 10-6 loss to the White Sox. The defense went awry at inopportune times, the bullpen labored to keep things close and the lineup -- resurgent as it was -- came up empty in a few critical moments.

When the smoke cleared, and the Tribe was headed for its charter flight to Kansas City for its first road trip of the season, the result was a disappointing homestand that left fans wondering if this club can contend in the American League Central. For now, the Indians will point out that it is far too early to react to statistics.

"Five games is not going to make me panic," Indians manager Manny Acta said. "We have to give it a little more time. It's five games into it. In five more games, things can change again. Everybody goes through those periods -- those ups and downs -- and we're in it right now."

Manny Acta knows when and when not to Tweet

By Sheldon Ocker, Akron Beacon Journal
April 19, 2012

SEATTLE — Indians manager Manny Acta is an active tweeter, but his messages are unlikely to raise any eyebrows.

“I never got in any trouble tweeting,” he said Thursday. “I knew from Day One what I should tweet and what I shouldn’t.”

Chris Perez, on the other hand, was fined by the commissioner’s office for tweeting the message, “You hit us, we hit you. Period,” after last week’s game in which one Indians player and one Kansas City Royals player were hit by pitches.

“I have no response (to Perez’s tweet),” Acta said. “Everybody is entitled to his own opinion, his own thoughts.”

< David, you have disparaged the very thing that has allowed us to make gains against Al Queda: ... "The same ones who sent them over mission after mission."

Then, you disparage "The same ones who started an unnecessary war." As if it was unnecessary when it was begun? Obama said it was, and almost every other member of Congress said it was not. History will be a better judge than you, of Iraq and Afghanistan, and of the BUSH-CHENEY initiatives to gain entree into the terrorist networks. History will be kind to Bush and Cheney, where you and others here are cruel.

But put that aside. The bitterness towards my opinions is sad, unwarranted, misdirected, and offensive.

I've been working door to door, and the bitterness everywhere is truly alarming. As is the utter lack of respect for all politicians. Alarming. >

Indians slide continues with 12-1 loss in Boston

BOSTON (AP) - Cleveland pitcher Justin Masterson's sinker wouldn't sink or go where he wanted it to.

Masterson's control problems led to a quick 4-0 deficit and his teammates continued to struggle at the plate in a 12-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Sunday.

"You never want to put your boys in that type of hole," Masterson said after allowing six runs on seven hits over six innings.

Masterson also hit three batters as the Indians lost their third straight and for the fifth time in six games.

Cleveland scored one run for the second straight game and fell to 1-3 on a six-game road trip that started with an 8-3 win at Boston on Thursday night.

"The last couple of days, it hasn't been very good," manager Manny Acta said. "We haven't been able to execute and pick up some of those cheap RBIs. That's the way our offense works. We can't afford that."

Hmmmm...Must be a lack of s'too-ational hitting.

Heard Carpy use this term tonight, btw.(incorrectly IMO) Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that "s'too-ational hitting" is a term that refers to things like being able to hit behind runners, looking for pitches to elevate into sac flies, executing hit and runs properly, etc. - not just simply being able to drive in runs with runners in scoring postion.

To put this in perspective, the Indians are drawing fewer attendees than they were as of May 13 of last season (14,563 over 18 games).

Manager Manny Acta didn't blame Wise for trying to win an Oscar.
"If you can get an out, why not?" he said. "There have been phantom tags in baseball forever."
Acta, however, believes MLB will take care of such problems when it expands the use of replay to cover "catch and no catch" situations. It was supposed to be used this season, but the owners, players association and umpires couldn't agree on it.
"We knew he didn't catch the ball because they didn't show it on the scoreboard," said Acta. "It's a great play. How come you're not showing it on the board for the fans?

Acta really ticked me off tonight. When Hannahan was tossed, Manny should have stormed the field. Ump was completely out of line and should have tasted Manny's spittle. No doubt that the replay was discussed on the bench and it was an obvious blown call. So Manny half-arse walks out on the field when Hannahan is tossed, and pretends to 'stand up' for his players.

Kiss this season goodbye. Hannahan has to be livid by his skipper's lethargy. Front office: NO passion...Manager: NO passion...Players: NO passion. Chris Perez, I ask you...How can you EVEN question the FANS when your so-called baseball organization has all the fire of a wet match stick?

There was an article in Yahoo the other day naming the Managers most hated by the players and Acta was listed as third. I wonder if the FO saw that article. If these players are as good as the FO thinks then the problem is somewhere else and they should be able to recognize that.

I try not to get too involved with critiquing a manager, unless they’re making (what I feel are) blatantly bad decisions on the field on a regular basis.  While I’m certainly not happy with the way the Indians are playing right now, Manny Acta can’t get in the game and bat, nor can he pitch.  As far as his lineups and in-game decisions, what more could he do?  He can’t make these guys suddenly hit left-handed pitching, and he can only send the starters he has available out there every five days.  At the same time, I’m very upset with some of the things I’ve seen involving Acta’s leadership (or lack thereof) and Tuesday night’s game was really the last straw for me.

I am starting to understand why many Indians fans dislike Manny Acta. He should have stuck up for Jack Hanahan and instead he stuck up for the umpire. How could the umpire have not seen that Wise had dropped the ball when it was right in front of him? If Acta won't stick up for his players, then I say bring on Sandy Alomar as the manager before he gets away!

Antonetti Says No Question Acta Will Be The Indians Manager Through This Season

CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – As the Indians trudge through their longest losing streak of 2012 to date, the pressure on GM Chris Antonetti and manager Manny Acta seems to be ever growing.

Thursday when appearing on the “Animal House” with Dustin Fox and Adam “The Bull” on 92.3 The Fan, the Tribe GM took center stage to answer the tough questions, the biggest of which is about Acta and his future.

When asked point blank if Acta is on the “hot seat” that so many underwhelming managers find themselves at this time of the year, the GM stood by his man with a simple answer.

“Absolutely not,” Antonetti said. “Manny has done a very good job managing this team, he’s put the guys in a position to be successful, overall when you look at our run differential, our runs scored and our runs allowed, it would dictate a worse record then has been shown so far.

“I think we’re in the position and we’re in the race based on some of the decisions that Manny has made.”

Antonetti said a second time that Acta is NOT going anywhere, and once again stood by the manager with comments stating how good of a job he feels that Acta has done.

“I have every confidence in the world in Manny and the job that he has done this year,” Antonetti said.

Chris Antonetti backs Manny Acta
Updated: August 6, 2012, 7:07 PM ET
Associated Press


CLEVELAND -- Indians general manager Chris Antonetti expressed support for manager Manny Acta and his coaching staff following the least successful trip in the franchise's 112-year history.

Cleveland went 0-9 at Minnesota, Kansas City and Detroit, ending the trip with a 10-8 loss to the Tigers on Sunday when All-Star closer Chris Perez gave up five runs with two outs in the 10th inning.

Cleveland trailed Chicago by 3˝ games when the trip began and went into Monday 9˝ games behind the AL Central-leading White Sox.

Antonetti spoke to reporters prior to Monday night's game against the Twins. Asked if Acta, who is signed through 2013, would return next season, he said, "I have no reason to think otherwise. I'm very happy with the job Manny's done. Obviously, this has been a very tough road trip, but he's continued to provide very good leadership. I certainly think he's part of the solution, not part of our issues."

Antonetti isn't contemplating any changes in the coaching staff.

"That's not where we're focused right now," he said. "We're focused on how do we get the guys here to perform better."

Antonetti admitted the losing streak that has knocked the Indians out of the race in the AL Central has been a team-wide freefall.

"In some cases it was starting pitching, in some cases it was offense and in a couple of other cases it was the bullpen," he said.

The Indians completed their most recent homestand with a comeback win against Tigers ace Justin Verlander, but any hope of momentum was buried in the team-wide collapse. The Indians were outscored 74-28 on the trip and lost six games to the Royals and Twins, the two worst teams in the league.

"I don't think we foresaw losing nine consecutive games," Antonetti said. "It's important to turn the page. There's nothing we can do about the road trip. It's over. We need to focus on what we can control -- playing better baseball and moving forward."

Antonetti said he and his staff perhaps over-evaluated the team's talent level when the season began.

"That's certainly possible," he said. "Those are all things we're going to have to explore. As a team, we have not performed to our expectations and we're in the process of reviewing what may have caused that."

This season's team hasn't been a hit with fans despite leading the division in April and May. The Indians are last in the league in attendance and have been the target of criticism on local radio talk shows during the current slump.

"I'm sure we're all exceptionally popular," Antonetti said with a laugh.

The Indians cut pitcher Derek Lowe and outfielder Johnny Damon during the trip by designating both veterans for assignment.

No, not necessarily, but it but does include holding players accountable and umpires sometimes, as well. Teams don't just lose 10 in a row (or 12 in a row in the case of the Nats once under Manny) if a manager is on top of his job. Just doesn't happen IMHO.

No guarantees beyond 2012 for Acta



08:12 AM ET 08.10 | The numbers over an 11-game losing streak were too hard to swallow for Paul Dolan. Outscored 95-35. Starting pitchers had an earned run average of 10.44. Team batting average of .224. Outscored 32-12 in the first two innings. ... Dolan declined to discuss [Manny Acta's] future beyond this season -- or that of anyone else in the front office. "We assess everyone at the end of every season," he said. "As painful as this has been, I don't want to get into some knee-jerk reactions." While [Chris Antonetti] recently said he expected Acta to return in 2013, there is no guarantee of that at the moment. Acta is under contract for 2013, but it's clear Dolan wants to see how the team performs for the rest of the season.

The Plain Dealer


Manny looks confused and worried... might not even make it through the end of this season, let alone return in '13.

Indians shut out, swept by A's
August 19, 2012

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Indians manager Manny Acta wants his team to relax despite the mounting losses.

Shin-Soo Choo and Casey Kotchman each got two hits for Cleveland, but that wasn't nearly enough in a 7-0 loss to Oakland. Jarrod Parker pitched eight sharp innings while Coco Crisp homered and drove in five runs as the Athletics completed a three-game sweep.

"You have to stay positive," Acta said. "The guys are better than that. They are trying very hard. They need to relax. Its been going on for a while."

The Indians have lost five straight and 18 of their last 22.

SEATTLE -- The only regret that Indians closer Chris Perez has about his recent shouting match with an Oakland A's fan was that the tirade was caught on camera.

On Monday, Perez addressed the profanity-laced exchange that was captured on video and posted publicly for the world to see. He said the incident, which took place during batting practice prior to Saturday's game in Oakland, includes more history than was portrayed in the clip that ran just shy of two minutes.
...

Indians manager Manny Acta and general manager Chris Antonetti have both discussed the situation with Perez.

"We spoke to Chris," Acta said. "He knows what went on there and he's going to handle it better going forward. He obviously was set up, as everybody saw. He'll learn from it.

Cleveland Indians stick to formula in falling to Seattle Mariners, their sixth straight loss


SEATTLE, Wash. — Being in fourth place in the American League Central for the first time since April 13 didn't seem to bother the Indians that much Monday night at Safeco Field.

They scored their usual three runs and collapsed in their usual fashion in a 5-3 loss to Seattle. Oh, yes, Streak II continues to feed.

The Indians have lost six straight and 19 of their past 23 games. Monday's loss kept them a half-game behind the Royals in fourth place in the AL Central.

I probably shouldn't be so hard on ol' Manny. Since coaching major league baseball is obviously beyond his expertise, perhaps he can apply what he's learned from reading about John Wooden and Vince Lombardi and become a highly successful bowling coach. Not entirely sure if bowling has coaches, though....oh, well.

Seven straight losses, two games from last place, and the worst run differential in the AL. If the Tribe loses to Seattle tomorrow, their schedule looks brutal with their next four series coming up against the Yankees, A's, Rangers, and Tigers.

Looks like the Tribe is getting off the mat and going for the team consecutive loss record again. At this pace they could be in last place by Saturday depending on what the Twins do and break the loss record on Monday the 27th. The potential is there for them to keep right on losing until at least Sept 7 when they visit the Twins (oh wait, they will be in Minnesota, and then they go to Texas...ugh!) Anyway, hopefully they could end our suffering and win a series or at least a game before the end of the season. That and watching Shelly Duncan try to throw sliders while pitching mop up is all that I have left to look forward to, although seeing Lou Marson on the rubber would be an acceptable consolation prize.

Manny Acta won't agonize over losses, job status: 'I'm not going to cry' -- Cleveland Indians Insider

SEATTLE, Wash. -- Manny Acta does not share the payrolls or the talented rosters of Boston's Bobby Valentine and the Angels' Mike Scioscia. The one thing they do have in common is the hot seat that all managers ride when their teams aren't meeting expectations.

When asked about his job security Wednesday before Seattle handed the Indians their eighth straight loss, Acta said, "I know it's a cliche, but I'm going to tell you the same thing over and over again -- all I can control is to prepare myself every day and do the best I can. I'm doing the best I can."

Acta is signed through 2013. GM Chris Antonetti has already given him a vote of confidence, but right now the Indians have fallen and they can't get up.

"It's hard," said Acta. "That's the best way to put it. I'm just not going to be crying in front of you guys."

The Indians were 50-49 and 3 1/2 games out first place in the AL Central after beating Detroit on July 26. They seemed primed for a push back to the top of the division, but have instead dropped down an empty elevator shaft. In 27 days, they've gone 4-21, dropping from 3 1/2 to 14 games out of first. They had an 11-game losing streak, the second longest in franchise history, followed by an eight-game skid.

The starting pitching has been brutal. In the first losing streak, the rotation went 0-8 with a 10.44 ERA. In the second, the starters are 0-5 with a 6.50 ERA

Quote:
At least manager Manny Acta did his part to keep the economies strong in Anaheim, the Bay Area and Seattle. Some managers find solace in drink and food when their teams go bad. Others break furniture, get ejected from games or snap at those around them.

"It works backward for me," said Acta. "I just don't feel like eating when we lose and I only drink when we win."

What Acta does is shop and lose sleep.

"Losing streaks cost me a lot of money," he said. "I feel sorry for the bellman when he comes to get my bag. I make sure I let him know before I tip him so he doesn't break his back."

Shoes, hats, shirts are all on Acta's shopping list when the Tribe goes bad. As for sleep, Acta explained, "Am I sleeping like I do in a normal period? Not."

The Indians covered just about every aspect of big-league life on the 10-day trip except the most important -- winning. They only did that once, beating the Angels in the first game, 6-2.

...

"I expect better. Things just escalated out of order. We got outscored the whole trip again. I just think we're better than that."

...

At times like this, it comes down to a question of motivation. Are the players still playing hard? Or have they tuned out their manager?

"In this type of situation, it is harder to motivate the players," said Acta. "We don't have that many veterans. The coaching staff and myself have to be very hands-on with every single one of these guys to make sure they stay upbeat and don't allow this to crush them. We do the best we can.

"What I can do is show them the same face every day even if I'm dying inside. I just can't show it to my players."

One of Acta's best qualities is his positive approach to the game and life. These last 25 games, including 21 losses and a fall from 3 1/2 games off the pace to 14 1/2 games in the AL Central, have tested that.

"Don't believe me when I say I'm doing great, fantastic," said Acta. "I haven't been able to use super fantastic in a long time. I can't even lie to myself."

Acta, Indians mingle with fans at charity bowling event

By Zack Meisel / MLB.com | 08/23/12 8:50 PM ET

CLEVELAND -- The Indians threw some strikes during Thursday's off-day.

Riding an eight-game losing streak, the club returned to Cleveland in time for manager Manny Acta's second annual charity bowling fundraiser. The event, run by the ImpACTA Kids Foundation, is used to provide scholarship opportunities to kids in Cleveland, build homes in Acta's native country, the Dominican Republic, and help other needy children in both areas.

"It's unfortunate that it's happening at this time, the way things are with our baseball club," Acta said. "But we just want to give back to our fans. Unfortunately, it's probably not the happiest time for them, but we're here doing our part, and it's a great time for our players to come out here and mingle with our fans."
...
Last year, the event fell on the day the Indians acquired franchise favorite Jim Thome, the club's all-time home run leader. This season, it comes amid a stretch during which the Indians have lost 21 of 25. Acta was glad to have a distraction for the evening.

"I don't think anything can take my mind off baseball," he said. "It's obviously my job and my passion. It's great to have a day off and to have an event like this. Players will be able to come out and relax. We always say that baseball is our job and our passion, but it's not our life. This is a really good event where we try to give back to our fans and connect with them, and it's also for a good cause."

That's what the season has come to for Acta. Cleveland's extended tailspin continued with Sunday's 4-2 loss to the New York Yankees.

"We pitched OK, which made for a decent ballgame," Acta said. "That makes it easier to take then when you're trailing by a ton of runs and it sucks the energy out of everybody."

Cleeflen trailing Oaklen 8-2 in the top of the fifth today.

12-7 your final. Cleeflen drops another one.

Cleveland’s free-fall shows no signs of ending after 12-7 loss to Oakland
By Associated Press, Updated: Thursday, August 30, 6:32 PM

CLEVELAND — Indians manager Manny Acta has been in professional baseball since 1986. He thought he had seen it all.

Thursday’s 12-7 loss to Oakland extended the Indians’ latest losing streak to five in a row and was their 14th defeat in 15 games. Cleveland also is 5-23 in August — putting it one loss away from the franchise record of 24 in a month (set in July 1914) — and a major-league worst 5-27 since July 27.

Acta, in his third season with the Indians after managing the Washington Nationals from 2007-2009, is at a loss to explain why his team has fallen so quickly.

“I’ve never been through a month like this anywhere,” he said. “Not in Washington, the minor leagues or winter ball, either as a coach or a manager.”

Mirror, mirror on the wall, numbnuts. Seriously, has there ever been a more useless manager in the history of this game?

really sucks for Cleeflen because they're not going to get a Harper or Strasburg in return for three years of Manny
