One more thing about the Stros

Brad-Mills-GettyJust one more thing. I promise.

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’t be blamed for that. And he seems to be nice fellow.

But before characterizing him as a “terrific manager,” don’t 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’s vacuum of analytical ability.

Here’s hoping that the new owners will look beyond such tripe.

Now that they are no longer in the Astrodome, how about a complete makeover. Colt 45's folks?
