    Report: Astros to name Cooper manager on Friday

    Per ESPN.

    The Houston Astros will announce Friday afternoon that interim manager Cecil Cooper will be given the job on a permanent basis, the Houston Chronicle reported, citing a person with knowledge of the situation.

    Cooper, who joined the Astros as bench coach at the start of the 2005 season, had served as interim manager since Phil Garner was fired last month. Cooper took over for Garner on Aug. 27, and the Astros are 13-15 with him at the helm.

    The team announced it would hold a news conference at 4:30 p.m. ET Friday at Minute Maid Park.

    One less job the potential free agent managers can obtain...

    Good news for the Reds!

    May they meet the same fate at the Reds the last few seasons with their interim merry go round.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Oh, they will, especially with that wonderful new GM they hired.
