    Unreal! I respect Crane for doing this though. Luhnow was a good GM and hopefully his replacement is better and who is going to be our new Manager?

    Surely Cora needs to be canned in Boston and banned from the league.

    Seems like the Astros could have rebounded from the penalties against them. Crane made sure that wasn't going to happen.

    Just unreal. Who is the new GM now that all the assistants have been poached?
    And now for manager. Holy hell. Just speechless.

    Pretty surprising. How was Luuhnow part of the scheme? Or was he just aware?

    Now I’m pissed. Jim Crane can eat a bag of dicks.

    It’s over, folks. This era has now officially drawn to a close...

    Well I’ll say this...Crane is no McNair. He’s not afraid to handle his business when it need to be handled.

    Both Luhnow and Hinch were damn good. Gonna miss Hinch. Really feel like he was put in the middle of this garbage. I mean I get it, but damn.

    That was a difficult press conference to watch.

    This is a crazy day, The best GM and Coach combo in the city are fired, while the worst (BOB) keeps his job.
