2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Why do the Astros need to interview10 prospective managers? Isn't this the same silliness that GM Ed Wade did in Philly?
(Bill from Galveston)
It strikes me as a little strange in terms of the sheer numbers, but on the other hand, it's an important decision, and I'd want every GM to be able to pick someone he feels he can work with. I know that I'd love to see Manny Acta get another chance, but I guess I find it amusing that Phil Garner's under consideration as well. What would that represent for Drayton McLane (and Tal Smith) and Scrap Iron, some sort of a soft-fried mellow echo of Billy and George from the '70s? (Christina Kahrl)
