To me, you have to maximize at bats. Your better hitters should have a shot at getting that extra at bat.

Manny Acta in a FanGraphs two-headed interview with Indians Asst GM Mike Chernoff. Acta, as usual, shows that he's a completely reasonable man. Interview focuses primarily on lineup construction.

Asked about third base, Acta said, "We'll see what's out there. if not, we're prepared to go with our in-house candidates."

Where does this put Donald in the Tribe's pecking order of second basemen? ''It depends on what we do in the offseason,'' Acta said. ''And that's something a lot of guys will be hearing.''

Acta recollecting a scouting report that was compiled on Fausto as a minor leaguer.
