Dierker's back!

2nd day on the job, and Reid Ryan has mended the fence with Larry Dierker. The Astros announced today that Dierker will be a Special Assistant to the President, serving as a goodwill ambassador and advising Reid Ryan.

I'm curious about this as the role sounds purely ceremonial and I thought that Dierk's giant toddler-sized temper tantrum a few months back was because he didn't want a ceremonial role - he wanted a role with substance.

What changed?

Oh yea - they got rid of Postolos which makes me think that Dierk's tantrum had NOTHING to do with the role, but a WHOLE lot to do with who would be calling the shots.

How much longer until they dispose of the bozos currently in the radio booth and put Dierker back where he rightfully belongs.

John......AGREE 100%!! Steve Sparks
is a nice guy, but he is a DISASTER
on the radio. Robert Ford is pretty good, but he seems to be uneasy working with Sparks. I've already emailed the front office TWICE....they don't CARE what we think. Pissed me off.

Disagree 100%. I love Ford and Sparks. Ashby, on the other hand...

Ford is gold. Not sure why Sparks does the 4th and 7th - those are the innings that I enjoy the lease. That said, would love to see Dierks back.
