Drop out as Astros GM days after winning World Series
Astros general manager James Click will not receive a new contract, a highly unusual move the team announced on Friday – just six days after Houston won the World Series.
Click was hired from the Tampa Bay Rays ahead of the 2020 season and appeared increasingly distant from owner Jim Crane.
Click said at general managers’ meetings in Las Vegas on Tuesday that his contract expired Oct. 31 and the situation has not been resolved.
He also said he had little advance notice of Wednesday’s press conference, where the Astros announced manager Dusty Baker had been given a one-year contract.
