Eeyore is back at it.
...So Brad Mills, the Red Sox this is not. The Astros are not a very talented team. The farm system is pretty empty. And the owner, though not understanding baseball, likes to interfere with the baseball people and make important decisions...
...Mills might be lucky. The fans are more concerned with choo-choo trains than they are with winning. The owner doesn't understand the game. And as Jose de Jesus Ortiz writes, Mills is a pal with Ed Wade and Tal Smith, so maybe he will have a bit more protection than Larry Dierker, Phil Garner, etc. had.
But then again, this is the Astros. A team which has quickly become one of the worst in baseball. So I offer up my condolences to Mills. He's got his wish. He's a big league manager. And I wish him the best of luck.
