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.
