Acta, At Last

Rosenthal sez it's a done deal. Manny Acta is set to be named Nationals manager.

Of all the names that were bantered about, his was the most intriguing, simply because he's the only one I knew anything about -- based on an interview excerpted at Lone Star Ball.

Acta seems to be aware of the numbers, and hopefully won't do mind-numbingly stupid things. We can, I'd wager a small fortune, expect to never see Cristian Guzman leading off, for example. (Is he a stathead?)

He's young, energetic, respected by some players, and had the balls to bench Soriano in the World Baseball Classic last year.

All things considered, the Nationals did well.
