Sportswriter Richard Justice now has a blog at the Houston Chronicle. This entry discusses the shocking (to me) resignation of Astros GM Gerry Hunsicker. What I should have known all along was that working for Drayton McLane is no picnic, and despite Hunsicker's remarkable success in putting competitive teams together, enough is enough.
Justice and others have asserted that replacement Tim Purpura is more than capable. I could be convinced of that if he signs Carlos Beltran.
