Holy Hannah! The Astros have received permission to interview Tampa Bay's Andrew Friedman.
Astros owner Jim Crane and CEO George Postolos are hoping the lure of returning to fix the team he grew up rooting for would be just such an extraordinary situation.
Gerry Hunsicker apparently will not be interviewed for the position.
The question, for me, is what compensation would be necessary for the Astros to send the Rays' way if the Astros make the move. Hey, after paying Ed Wade for the next two years, maybe Jim Crane is in a compensating mood.
