Ranking the Houston Astros’ top 5 manager candidates

HOUSTON (BVM) — The Houston Astros entered the 2023 MLB season as defending World Series champions and returned a star-studded cast, including Jose Altuve, Yordan Alvarez, Alex Bregman and Kyle Tucker. They were led by Dusty Baker, who helped Houston to its third consecutive American League Championship Series (ALCS) and finish with a 90-72 record.
