The surprising news about Arnsberg came as no surprise to Arnsberg

So now we know that the Astros can suck the life out of management, as well as their fans. Brian McTaggart got some reaction from Arnsberg about the Whole Deal:

“It was philosophical differences between a manager and a general manager and a pitching coach. I don’t want to get into the details. It’s just been kind of rearing its ugly head the last 2-3 weeks, and I guess they felt like they had to make a move for the betterment of the club and the staff. I take it like a man...

...The last couple of weeks have really been a bear for me going to the ballpark. I’m always a fun-loving, free-spirited guy and get along with pretty much everybody, and it just hasn’t been a whole lot of fun over the last two, three or four weeks. That’s not why I intended on staying in this game, and so as far as it being a surprise? I’d have to weigh on the side of no, not really.”

It'll be interesting to see what Wade has to say in less than three hours.
