Bayou City Headlines: Houston Texans Hire Brian Gaine

According to many around the league, the Texans have made a great hire bringing in former Miami Dolphins assistant GM Brian Gaine. Gaine was bypassed by Dolphins management for their GM opening, and was let go once Dennis Hickey took over the Dolphins. Gaine is a Bill Parcell’s protege and many believe he deserves to be a GM in this league. Check out the rest of the links for more.

 

Houston Astros

Owner Jim Crane said that the Astros’ goal is to be baseball’s most improved team.

“I think we can accomplish that,” Crane said. “We’ve added a bunch of players in the offseason, and we’re looking forward to the season. We have more depth with the bats, and they’ve brought in a lot of pitching to the bullpen. We’ll have some competition for a few spots. We’ll definitely be improved. We hope we can get it up above .500 this year.”

“We want free throws, paint points and open 3s. That’s what we’re trying to do, and the guys all know that. If we can take those shots, can continue to be one of the top teams in the league in paint points, a lot of good stuff will happen.”
