    Astros did what?

    Gary Gaetti was interviewed by the Houston Astros for the position of hitting coach with their AAA farm club in Round Rock. A bit odd since he was fired as hitting coach of the Astros just this past June. He can't coach the major leaguers, but he can apparently coach the players trying to get there.

    Perhaps he was fired for a reason other than not doing his job well... and perhaps that problem has since been resolved?

    Re: Astros did what?

    I was told that his interview was more or less a courtesy interview. There is a chance he could get that job but it is said to be slim.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    A minority interview. There aren't too many folks with noses like his.

    VERY TRUE!!! That guy could really play some 3B though. Freakin' rifle arm too.

    Re: Astros did what?

    I don't blame Gary Gaetti for the Astros' hitting woes. Adam Everett and Brad Ausmus are unsalvagable. Wily Tavares is close.

    Ensberg was hurt (Gaetti helped him in '05).
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
