Here's the deal:: we're going to trade all of your good players and then fire you when you begin losing. Ok ok, so I'm being unfair. The Cleveland Indians fire coach Charlie Manuel. Please bring back Hargrove. Please?

Except Manuel wasn't "fired"--he was relieved of his duties as manager because he wanted out. According to the announcers during last night's Yankees-Indians game, Manuel demanded to be part of the rebuilding process or to be removed. The Indians are still paying his salary, as per usual.

just announced, Jim Thome traded to Montreal for Joe Shlabotnik, four rosin bags, and "a player to be named later".
