HOUSTON (AP) - Dusty Baker says managing the Houston Astros will be his “last hurrah." At 70 years old, this will be his 23rd season as a major league manager and he's still chasing an elusive championship. He'll get that chance with an Astros team that has a lot of talent but also is reeling from a sign-stealing scandal that cost manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow their jobs. Baker was introduced as Houston's new manager on Thursday, bringing a wealth of experience as a player and a manager to a club that lost the World Series in seven games last year.
