Astros Fire Manager Brad Mills

Former Red Sox bench coach Brad Mills, who left the team to become the manager of the Houston Astros in 2009, was fired Saturday night.

His Astros have the worst record in baseball at 39-82, including an unbelievably bad 4-34 stretch earlier this season.

The team is in the midst of rebuilding, having traded away Carlos Lee, Chris Johnson, Brett Myers, Brandon Lyon and Wandy Rodriguez during the season.

Just three current players make more than $750,000 (Francisco Cordero, Jed Lowrie and Ben Francisco), while the rest of the roster is comprised of rookies and minor leaguers.

So, Millsy had no shot, and ideally, he has no shot at landing the Red Sox opening as soon as Bobby Valentine is fired.
