Tribe hedge Wedge with two-year pledge

From the Strikethree.com Newsroom

The Indians showed their confidence in manager Eric Wedge on Wednesday, extending his contract through 2007, with a club option for 2008 and 2009. The team also extended the contracts of Wedge’s coaching staff, including bench coach Buddy Bell and hitting coach Eddie Murray, through 2006.

Wedge led the rebuilding Tribe to an 80-82 record last year. “Eric has consistently demonstrated his strengths as a leader for our team and organization,” said GM Mark Shapiro, whose eyes we swear had a slight misty quality.
