The FIRE MANNY ACTA campaign is over.


I started the FIRE MANNY ACTA campaign about a month ago not because I didn’t like the guy, but because the Nationals organization needed a shake-up (and we all know Acta and his squad couldn’t properly coordinate a coup against the Lerner family).

Now that Acta has been relieved of his duties, bench coach Jim Riggleman will take over.

Acta’s 26-61 record this season (157-251 in three-and-a-half-years) isn’t something that will highlight his resume when he starts looking for a job. Acta was just in the wrong place and the wrong time (where the wrong time is any time because the Lerners refuse to find a new GM or spend more money), but he will end up getting hired by another team in the majors in the next year or two.

It’s a competitive business to work in and Acta simply got the short straw.

FIRE MANNY ACTA campaign: officially over.
