It's not just a fire-sale on the field in Houston. Big time changes continued in Houston tonight, as the team has been revamping their scouting department and front office, among other things, this season.
The Houston Astros have fired manager Brad Mills, according to Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle. The team also relieved first base coach Bobby Meacham and hitting coach Mike Barnett of their duties.

It's unclear who will be taking over as the team's manager for the remainder of this season, but that won't be a huge decision for the long-term. Mills lead the team to a 39-82 record this year.
