So it's not all bloodshed in Houston, as KPRC Sports Director Randy McIlvoy, tweeting from Luhnow's press conference, says that Luhnow has talked to Mills about 2012 - indicating that Mills will be back.
Ultimately, this makes the most sense...for one more year. We're at the stage in the off-season where you're about eight weeks late on making managerial moves. So Luhnow will roll the dice on Mills. And I'm okay with that.
