Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

Joe Espada Should Be The Astros' Next Manager

Posted 05-24-2022 at 06:30 PM by case44


I know, y'all. I know what you all are saying to yourselves:

"Now, Case, you've got to let the season play out and let Dusty Baker make his own decision to stay or go."

We've got a lot of baseball left to play in 2022, but the Houston Astros are actually in a bit of suspense. Dusty Baker is the manager, and this season offers this legendary baseball lifer a chance to finally get a world title as manager in the big leagues, especially after coming up two wins short of it last season. What if he does win it this time?

It's been said that Baker may retire once he finally gets his title, to simply leave on a high note. But what if the Astros don't win the Big One this year? Does Dusty come back next year?

I'm not against having Dusty on the Astros bench; he's come through nicely with the club. But there's a guy on the other side of the bench that's been courted by other ballclubs with an opportunity to manage. Speculation has abounded H-Town with questions about bench coach Joe Espada, who is highly regarded in baseball circles. He's been with Houston since 2019. People have been saying that he should be the next manager of the Astros, and if that opening should come up, then he should be the easy choice.

While there are no guarantees once the 2022 season comes to a close, I believe that Dusty Baker's successor ought to be Joe Espada. He's the right guy to lead Houston further into the future.
