Tim Bogar To Interview With 'Stros Tomorrow

Bogar: 2013 AL West Foe?
UPDATE: 'Stros/Bogar To Meet In Tampa

According to a report by the Globe's Nick Cafardo, Red Sox bench coach Tim Bogar will interview for the Houston Astros managerial job on Wednesday of this week. It's not clear whether Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow and/or team president George Postolos will travel to Tampa or whether Bogar will go to Houston. Former Phillies manager Larry Bowa has confirmed that he has already interviewed with the team for the manager's spot. The Astros, recently purchased by a group headed by millionaire Jim Crane, have tanked even more than the Red Sox this year—posting a ridiculous 48-99 record—leading to the dismissal of former Sox bench coach Brad Mills. The Astros will move to the American League West next year.
