Chris Antonetti secure as Indians General Manager

Cleveland Indians manager Manny Acta was fired by the team on Thursday after a disappointing season, but general manager Chris Antonetti received a vote of confidence from team president Mark Shapiro and was assured that his position is safe. Shapiro told reporters that he believes Antonetti's vision and plan for the team are "still evolving," and he added that the GM still has a strong endorsement from top brass (via MLB.com):
"We obviously look at a broad range of criteria when we're evaluating everybody. Chris is dealing with a set of challenges, which I understand, some of which are the creation of the organization that he and I ran together, and some of which are the result of other decisions. But I feel he's controlled the bulk of what he can control well. [Indians CEO Paul Dolan] and I still endorse strongly [Antonetti's] vision for how we can be competitive and, ultimately, a championship team."
The Indians are currently tied with the Minnesota Twins for the worst record in the American League (65-91).
