    You're right... it would be a horrible/worse than bad move.

    He's not gonna have the time. He's gonna have to attend a different parade every other day. People seem to like to throw them for him. :eek:

    Ausmus took his name out of consideration 2 years ago. He knew he was a hot candidate, and knew there would be better opportunities.

    Too bad he can't come play 3B and hit .280 with 35-40 bombs. THAT would be finishing your business in Houston.
