SPORTSMAP ROUNDTABLE PRESENTED BY TIGHT ENDS SPORTS BAR & GRILL

Here's what the shake-up in the front office means for the Astros

With the season now at an end and the Astros looking towards improving next year, what the Astros need now is a clear focus and stability at the top.

However with the demotion of Reid Ryan, Nolan Ryan walking away, and Jared Crane being promoted to Reid's old position by his father, Jim, we now have to question where the focus of the Astros front office is.

ESPN 97.5's John Granato, A.J. Hoffman, and Raheel Ramzanali dive into the shake-up at the top, and how this will impact the Astros in the near future. SportsMap Roundtable presented by Tight Ends Sports Bar & Grill.

Check out the video above as the guys from The Wheelhouse lay it all out!
