07:08 AM ET 05.14 | George Postolos very likely isn't the reason the Astros were 10-28, and his departure may not help the club turn things around, either. What it could do is have a (positive) impact on the working conditions on the business side of the team's front office. ... "Everyone thought he'd be gone within a couple of years," one former Astros employee said Monday. While he was there, Postolos helped Crane significantly reduce the non-baseball part of the Astros' budget, as many front-office personnel were either fired or chose to leave. Current and former employees described Postolos' management style as "polarizing," saying he was difficult to work with and seemed to lack people skills.

As the article points out he was a beancounter who was there to reduce the non baseball playing side of the Astros business and budgetary concerns. This is simply a matter of he did the dirty work that the was told to do, and, he, more or less, acommplished what he set out to do. Mission accomplished; this part of the job done; now, see ya later.
Now, why is Fannation wasting time and space on this thread? And, a better question might be: Why am I wasting my time here? Adios!

Nobody likes the hatchet man...and that's intentional, he can do his job better if people hate him.
It would be interesting if the Express joined the Stros, Houston is much closer to his hometown than Dallas.
