Manny Acta (Cleveland Indians)
Vote of Confidence: August 7, 2012
Bald-Faced Lie: “We’re very happy with the job Manny has done…He is part of the solution; he is not part of the problem.” — General manager Chris Antonetti
Firing Date: September 27, 2012
Post-Mortem: A 21-50 second half—the worst in the American League—would seal Acta’s fate, and the likable skipper was fired with just six games left in the season. But turnabout is fair play. After a disappointing 68-94, it was GM Antonetti who got his very own vote of confidence from team president Mark Shapiro. Good luck with that, buddy.
