    ST. LOUIS -- Manny Acta, the highly respected manager just kicked to the curb by the Nationals, won't be without work for long. He was a longtime manager in Houston's minor-league system and could be joining the Astros' coaching staff as a bench coach. This would be a sensitive move as Cecil Cooper is not as secure as Houston's 44-44 record would suggest. ...

    Manny Acta is very highly regarded by Tal Smith and all of baseball so yea this would be a good move over Ed Romero.

    I'd love to have Manny Acta back in the organization. I'd love for them to can Cooper and hire Acta, too.

    Yea I think Acta is a decent manager. He just has NO talent up in D.C.
