Baseball Prospectus had an interesting interview with Manny Acta awhile back. I really like the guy and think he'd be a great addition as manager.
--Says he likes patient contact hitters. He values on-base percentage and power.
--Says outs are precious, and he sounds unlikely to waste them with over-aggressive tactics.
--Supports limiting pitchers' work through pitch counts but is flexible about it.
--Likes having one "true closer" but wants that person to be able to work for more than just three outs.
--Is a young, new face for the Giants, symbolic of their move in a new direction.
--Managed the Domincan baseball classic team and is respected by many players, including Albert Pujols.
