#mannyacta emerges as one of the possible managers for the #nymets
The Mets were described by sources as near the goal line on making a decision on who will replace #TerryCollins, with the internal belief that they want to finalize a deal this weekend and announce before the World Series begins Tuesday.
Hitting coach #KevinLong has been viewed as the favorite to land the gig, but those briefed on the process said no contract offers had been made to anyone as of Friday morning and that the club was still working through issues before making an offer — perhaps as early as later Friday.
#Mariners third base coach #MannyActa has emerged as a legitimate possibility as well. He is the only remaining candidate who has previous managing experience (with the #Nationals and #Indians) and was the #Mets third base coach under #WillieRandolph.
