The Houston Astros have undergone a tumultuous offseason to say the least in the wake of the team’s sign-stealing scandal that cost both general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch’s jobs. While the former’s position remains vacant at the moment, the team has reportedly decided on Dusty Baker to become manager. With more than 20 years of managerial experience, Baker has led nine teams to the postseason including the 2002 NL Pennant with the San Francisco Giants. SI staff writer Emma Baccellieri assesses Baker’s fit in Houston.
