The Astros are reportedly interviewing former Angels manager Brad Ausmus for the job!

Ausmus, 50, managed one year with the Angels in 2019, and the team went 72-90. He was fired by the Angels after an abysmal campaign, and the team went on to hire Joe Maddon. He previously managed four years with the Detroit Tigers.

Ausmus was suspended for a game concerning the Jake Marisnick-Jonathan Lucroy brouhaha after Noe Ramirez retaliated by hitting Marisnick with a pitch.

Ausmus had previously called for Marisnick to be suspended, much to the annoyance of Astros fans.

We’ll see how the dynamic plays out behind manager, team, and fans if the Astros do indeed decide to hire Ausmus.
