Aw, hell: Astros Name New Director of Amateur Scouting

The Astros have named a new administrative type:

The Houston Astros announced today that the club has named Bobby Heck as the club’s director of amateur scouting.

Journalists in the greater Houston area are going to have to stretch to find reasons to make puns on the Astros’ new director of amateur scouting, but I bet they’ll try. Maybe he’ll make it easy by getting in trouble with the law or something. “To Heck in a Handbasket” is a phrase I expect we’ll be seeing in headlines in the coming months.

    Bobby Heck’s not a bad name to play around with, but I think the Reds still have the best fun name in the division, as long as Dick Pole remains in the organization.

    T here is some guy out there named Dick Pole? LOL. I’m not surprised the Reds like Dick Pole so much. Yeah, Dick Pol is in the Reds organization? With all help Reds with all the Dick OPol have been scewing you with big timee contrats. I’m not surprised.
