As Houston patiently waits for its next great season, one will ask can A.J. Hinch do it? Certainly there have been many managers who have tried, failed, and maybe were not so bad. The quality of these athletes at the end of the day will make or break the manager. His job is to keep the players enthused, make sure they play the game the right way, and most importantly put players in the right place to succeed.
