Current coaching staff all just sort of waiting

Within this McTaggart notebook, you get to read about the current Astros coaching staff all excited about the possibility of coaching under manager Bo Porter.

Bench coach Joe Pettini:
"Yeah, I would [like to stay]. I'm 57 years old and have 11 years as a coach at the big league level and a few as a player, and I'm not quite ready to retire yet. I'd like to do it a few more years."

Pitching coach Doug Brocail:
"I love this job, but we have a lot of work to do. I'd like to see it through. I don't know what their thoughts are. Nobody's talked about it, but if they want to sit down and talk, I'd love to be back."

So, were you Bo Porter, who would you keep and who would you let go? Remember (and I can't find the link right now), there was an indication that the Astros will want coaches with American League experience...
