Acta fires up Huff

Indians manager Manny Acta is looking for a little more fire from left-hander David Huff.

After winning a team-high 11 games as a rookie last season, Huff is just 1-5 with a 5.35 ERA after a shaky outing against the Royals on Thursday afternoon. According to the Plain Dealer, Acta met with Huff and stressed a simple formula: throw more fastballs and don't be afraid to challenge hitters.

"He basically lit a fire under my butt," Huff said. "Me and him are on the same page. I'm going to make the adjustment and head in the right direction."

Huff has lost his past four starts, allowing 19 earned runs in 22 innings, so he had no choice but to pay close attention.

Who knew that Acta could make adjustments to his style. Firing him up is better than tipping his sombrero to him.

When the team is that bad, should they be goofing around lighting farts or doing extra fielding practice? :crazy:

Why didn't he say that to someone last year?

Only the Orioles and Astros have a worse record than Manny's Indians.   He's got a lot of firing up to do.

Sure Acta fired him up in the clubhouse, in a few days when Huff takes the mound again Acta will stand in the dugout stone-faced and watch Huff impload.
