Yea, I'm sure a lot of other people, me being one of them, sees this as a bad idea... hiring a guy who on paper had poor success in the big leagues. 158-252 as a manager in his career, and we jump at the snap to get him after he gets an offer from the Astros. Not to mention he spent 8 yrs coaching in the minors.
I think I rather have kept Wedge. We all know had a bad season, but who wouldn't have giving up the talent we had, especially in the last 2 seasons losing C.C and Cliff Lee to trades. Wedge was 561-573 as a manger, which isn't bad, its respectable.
I wish Acta the best of luck though, I just don't think he was the right choice given the circumstances.
