Brian McTaggart has a series of tweets about Manny Acta's press conference:
Manny Acta also very impressive. Melvin and Acta are going to be serious contenders if they interviewed as well as they talked with media. Acta's knowledge of the Astros was outstanding. He seemed to know club from top to bottom and has managed Oswalt and Berkman in minors.
Same from Alyson Footer:
Humorous moment in Acta's presser. When asked about also interviewing with Indians, he said, "It's just like playing the lotto, the more tickets you play, the more chances you have to win."
On his record with the Nationals:
"For those that don't know what rebuilding is about, you probably can hold that against me," but expressed confidence that people in the baseball industry understand you have to judge on more than wins and losses.
