Dierker severs relationship with Astros - Houston Chronicle
A shame to see this.
Yeah, it is. It really is. Especially considering how low the franchise has been for a few years. If you're a fan of the Astros you might be feeling a little disenfranchised already with their recent record and something like this doesn't help that.
I'm not familiar with his radio or tv delivery, so I don't know how much of a factor that was in the decision by ownership.
Given his stature with the team, I can kind of see his viewpoint. Most pregame and postgame analysis from the markets I can remember seem to have some up-and-coming young analyst doing that. I guess it depends on how extensive and involved those two facets of covering the game are.
It seems that management would recognize the importance of a guy like this and keep him the most upbeat, positive Ambassador they possibly could for the sake of stability in tumultuous times, if nothing else. A nasty divorce with a life-longer like Larry Dierker is not something they need. I'm sure he feels very bitter (as he admitted) right now.
