Acta is Nationals new coach

Bill Ladson at, writes about Mets coach Manny Acta becoming the new manager of the Nationals:

The Nationals will name Mets third-base coach Manny Acta as their new manager on Tuesday, according to a high-ranking baseball official. Acta will sign a two-year contract, but terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Acta, who will become the second manager in Nationals history, will replace Frank Robinson, who was told by general manager Jim Bowden and team president Stan Kasten in separate meetings on Sept. 30 that he would not return in 2007. Several phone calls and e-mails made to Bowden and Acta were not returned.
