I hear what you're saying ... but I really hope that's not what happens - if he's willing to put in the work (and at times) misery of this season ... then he deserves a real shot to manage a club at full capacity ... He seems like a really good guy - young, enthusiastic, fair, professional, I'd like to see this organization do the right thing by him and give him a real shot ...

Totally! I couldn't agree with you more. But just like you said in the other post Girardi didn't want to come here, neither did Pinella, and Acta was probably desperate for a shot at being a skipper so he takes the job. Unfortunately he took a job where success will be hard to come by, at least this season, and he may wind up being the scapegoat when all is said and done. At some point our team will improve and they'll be lining up to manage our club. But hopefully the FO will reward his service by giving him a legitimate shot at managing with a real chance.
