DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)Would the Astros really fire Bo Porter after showing progress in '14?
(Sparky from Garage)
If the relationship is souring then probably.

The funny thing about the Astros is many of their supporters said marginal wins don't matter, so there's no sense in spending money to win 65 games instead of 55. Now that they're winning a few more games, the same people are pointing to that as proof of progress. I guess marginal wins matter after all. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-04-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on the Astros manager benching JD Martinez for swining at a high 80s fastball the other day?
(grandslam28 from chicago)
Bo Porter knows his players better than I do, grandslam28, so I think it's fair to side with him on the decision. With Joe Saunders having cruised through the first three innings, Porter had reason to be upset with Martinez for making the second out of the inning on the second pitch. That said, if the benching was heavily influenced by the result, then I'd have some concerns with it. (Daniel Rathman)
