Some things never change with regard to the Stros and the local media. Such as this most recent puff-piece by former Chron sportswriter and current MLB.com Stros beat writer Brian McTaggart with regard to Stros manager, Brad Mills.
Yeah, Mills has been dealt a bad hand and he shouldn‚Äôt be blamed for that. And he seems to be nice fellow.
But before characterizing him as a ‚Äúterrific manager,‚Äù don‚Äôt you think that McTaggart ought to require that Mills at least understand how to implement a double-switch? Just another example of the local mainstream sports media‚Äôs vacuum of analytical ability.
Here‚Äôs hoping that the new owners will look beyond such tripe.
