Wonder if any Nats follow him. Think he takes Trent Jewitt or Jim Lett? Dan Radison is currently coaching for the Astros. I wouldn't be surprised if Bo Porter retains him.

Does this make it a near given that Randy Knorr follows Davey Johnson?

I'm assuming he'll stick around as long as the Nats season is still going.

I kind of like Houston's infield, but the outfield is a mess and the rotation has just one consistent pitcher in Harrell.

I will miss him. We will need someone with balls of his magnitude to replace him.

That's a brutal job. They have almost nothing down there, and their #1 is about 5 years away.

I'm pretty sure UVA will win....anything before the Astros win again. And that's a LONG time.

According to MLBTraderumors.com Bo Porter is being named the manager of the Astros.  He will serve out the postseason with the Nats.  Congrats , Bo.

Congrats to Bo. Still hate they hired him in-season. Why is he sticking around for the rest of the year knowing he has another job waiting for him? What's in it for him?

Good luck Bo! He's got a lot of work on his plate but he has a chance to completely reshape this team. It will be interesting to watch the Astros over the next few years. :clap:

Good for him, I'm sure we can win without him though, and some of his calls at third annoyed me

Saw an account that the Astros moved fast because they sensed the Marlins were going to go after him too.
