Odds & Ends: Astros, Marlins, Reds

Let's check out some links as the Twins try to even the score in New York:

  • Brian McTaggart of MLB.com has the latest on the Astros' manager search from GM Ed Wade.
  • Two Marlins coaches declined offers to return to the club next season, writes Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com.  The departures of Bo Porter (third base/outfield) and Steve Porter (bullpen) mean that the Fish now have four spots to fill on their coaching staff after letting pitching coach Mark Wiley and first-base coach Andy Fox walk.  The Marlins also outrighted infielder Andy Gonzalez and right-hander Dallas Trahern to Triple-A New Orleans.
  • ESPN.com's Rob Neyer looks into the postseason success of Wild Cards.
  • John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer runs down the ex-Reds currently in the playoffs.  Fay says that "you can't really kick the Reds" for letting these players get away.
