Bagwell, Steinbrenner, And An Assistant For Theo
The Houston Astros have declined Jeff Bagwell's $18 million dollar option, instead giving him a $7 million dollar buyout. It is thought that he will stay with the club in one capacity or another. Allard Baird was named an assistant to Theo Epstein. He was previously the GM of the KC Royals. And down in North Carolina George Steinbrenner was stricken with chest pains and a fainting episode, his second in three years, while watching his granddaughter in a play. He was held in the hospital overnight before returning to Tampa. People sitting nearby noticed that George was pale and white with his eyes rolled up in his head. He has expressed through his spokesperson that he is just fine. I'm sure his doctors gave him every test imaginable. Get well George. And take it easy...you're getting up there in age.
That's a wrap for Wednesday morning, cool and rainy post-Halloween gloom everywhere.
