Houston Astros 2010 Manager Position

Now please don't tell me I'm wrong about my next sentence. Cecil Cooper will not be the Manager of the Houston Astros in 2010. Now the Stros have not been so good this year, but they could have probably still been contending and going on there usual run late in the year. The Problem is CECIL COOPER! So what has Cecil done? Many things.

1. Overwork the bullpen - Probably the worst thing he has done with this team. A great bullpen till the ASB, now they all are overused and on DL, sent down, etc.

2. Bat Hunter Pence 6 behind Geoff Blum - just ridiculous.

3. Left Starters or Relievers in the game to long - Starter gives up 6 runs in 3rd inning with 1 out? oh who cares leave him in there and give up another 4...Sampson case just kills me!

4. Loves the old guys - Kata, Erstad, Michael, Hampton, Ortiz - UCH!!!

5. No one has faith in him on our team - Been said by media and I can believe it 120%.

 

Now I am sure there has been many more things I am missing, but those 5 are the things I remember now.

 

So who should Drayton find to replace him? What about Bagwell or Biggio? Both are former Stros who will be respected in the clubhouse. Both have played and loved the game and in my opinion would be nice fits. The other name that comes to my mind is Manny Acta. In Washington he did not have much to work with. Here I believe he could be a good fit.

So what say you Astros fan?
