UPDATE - here is the online version of what I talk about below.
I did not.
A friend in the media business (not covering baseball) just sent a text that says Ken Rosenthal said Manny Acta was out, either this Monday or Friday, to be replaced on an interim (we presume) basis by Jim Riggleman. Ol' Interim Jim.
IF true, Monday makes the most sense with a day off. But, since the replacement isn't coming from outside, I guess that doesn't matter.
Wonder how much it will cost to re-film the pre-game intro on the big screen?
What I do not know is this: Was it presented as fact or was it presented as "we're hearing?" Awaiting a response.
Did anyone see it?
I know Rosenthal a little from his days in Baltimore. Didn't have a rep as being a wild-hair guy who threw stuff out to see what sticks. If he said it, I'd put some credence to it.
On a much sadder, real world intervenes note: Condolences to the family of Josh Willingham, based on this item reported by the Nationals News Network. Awful stuff. I can't imagine going through something like that. Here's the link to the newspaper story. Says he was trying to elude police, which is not good. Doesn't make it any less sad for Josh Willingham and family.
Willingham is on bereavement leave, Corey Patterson called up.
