Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that Manny Acta is one step ahead of the Astros, having already had a phone interview with Indians GM Mark Shapiro:
"I'm excited and honored to be part of this process. This team was only one game away from the World Series two years ago. They have lost some pieces, but I think things are going to be very exciting in Cleveland very soon. We are still very early in the process and I have to respect that process."
Remember that Acta will interview with Houston on Friday. And screw the Indians, we were only four wins away from winning the World Series four years ago. So there.
