CLEVELAND, OH - Cleveland Indians manager Eric Wedge announced that after 44 years of service with the Tribe he was sending bullpen coach Luis Issac packing. For most, this firing was a long time coming as it was no secret that Joe Borowski had paid off Issac to remain quite when his fastball was topping out at 79 MPH in the bullpen on April 14th.
Wedge also announced that he would be replacing bleacher drummer John Adams. Wedge commented, "He defiantly could have been drumming more passionately when we need him the most." Wedge is said to be interviewing several fair-weather fans to be Adams replacement. When asked if he had the authority to bar Adams from the stadium Wedge said, "he can still come, just leave that damn drum at home!"
Wedge further surprised the media assembled for the press conference when he announced that the "Beer Man" would be let go. Wedge explained "he spends too much time showing off his vocal capabilities instead of selling beer. Do you realize how much more we would have to spend on free agency this winter if he was selling more?"
No doubt, the heads will continued to roll.
