I suspect he will become the Norv Turner of bseball

Norv Turner in what sense?  Hanging around for years, or that he was fired very late in the season?   

I can see no reason why the Indians couldn't wait out the final six games and then quietly release him, rather than submit him to this humiliation.

Norv was also inexcusably fired with three games left in the 2000 season.   But you know - and I was not  a Norv Turner fan -  but if the Skins had stuck with him, over the last 12 years, they would have been far more successful than they have been with that succession of clown coaches.    Can't really see that the same would apply with Acta.
