So Tim Bogar will interview to become the next Astros manager today, and the Providence Journal says it will be in the Tampa area, where the Red Sox are playing the Rays.
“That’s what he wanted during the winter; that’s what his dream was, to
get the exposure with us so he could get noticed by other teams. I hope it works well for him.”
In other managerial news, the timing of the decision has been cleared up. While the Astros are hoping to pick a manager by the end of next week, Jim Crane says they won't announce the decision until after the season is over.
Crane also said that there have been six interviews (Porter, DeFrancesco, Martinez, Bowa, Bogar, and one Unknown candidate) with two more scheduled.
