Manny Acta to be the Mariners third base coach


Scott Servais is filling out his coaching staff in Seattle: Manny Acta is going to be the M’s third base coach.

It’s not official, but who makes up stuff about third base coach jobs? I mean, that’d be crazy. Like, I dunno, frantically churning incorrect rumors about untested Korean ballplayers or something.

Acta was last seen in the bigs managing the Indians. Before that he managed the Nats. He didn’t have much success at either stop, but he was always well-liked. His managerial experience could come in handy to Servais, who has none.
