Check out this jack-o'-lantern carved to resemble Nationals manager and former Mets coach Manny Acta. (via Amazin' Avenue) Pretty good work by the carver right? Making posts like this one is all I can do to take my mind off of the World Series that's about to be won down I-95.
I remember attending a Mets-Expos game in early 2003 when Acta was 3rd base coach for the Expos. I had pretty good seats, right behind 3rd base, and an annoying fat man sitting behind me screamed "ACTA!" about every 2 minutes when the Expos were up at bat. The Mets won 4-0, and David Cone notched his final career win that freezing cold night. Mo Vaughn led the offense, going 3-4 with a HR.
More stats posts to come in the near future, I promise.
