One of the surprising elements to come out of Astros Fan Fest over the weekend was Jeff Bagwell's role speaking with the media about the state of the team. The Astros have three assistant general managers that were asked to speak, all declined, leaving Bagwell to answer all the questions.

Plus, when Jose Abreu spoke at Fan Fest about signing with the club, he thanked Jim Crane, and wait for it, Jeff Bagwell.

The Astros are expected to hire a GM, and we've been seeing reports about interviews taking place. But will Bagwell remain as the mouthpiece of the organization, acting as a buffer between the new GM and owner Jim Crane?

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

Listen to The Wheelhouse weekdays from 3-7 PM on ESPN 97.5 and 92.5.
