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.
