Astros Fire General Manager Ed Wade After Ownership Change

Nov. 28 (Bloomberg) -- The Houston Astros fired general manager Ed Wade and president of baseball operations Tal Smith, less than two weeks after the team was officially sold to Crane Capital Group’s Jim Crane.

“With the change in ownership, we would like a fresh start in baseball operations,” Astros chief executive George Postolos said in a statement on the team’s website.

The Astros finished with a 56-106 record last season, the worst in Major League Baseball. Houston had a winning record once in Wade’s five-year tenure as general manager.
