Astros new coaches | Analysis on Rockets latest victory on Friday | Andre Johnson’s season

 

Houston Astros

The Astros were a perfect fit for Pat Listach, who was hired earlier this week as the club’s new first-base coach. Not only does Listach live in the Houston area, but the former American League Rookie of the Year is an infield instructor — an area of need for the Astros — and a proponent of the analytics of defensive positioning, something the club has been stressing under general manager Jeff Luhnow.

 

Houston Rockets

Daryl Morey had heard the chatter, the rumors in NBA circles that his time as Houston Rockets general manager and unofficial poster boy for the next front-office frontier might be nearing an end if he didn’t turn things around soon.

 

Houston Texans
