Minor Development: Tim Purpura Scores a New Job

Some people say miracles never happen. Well, I have a miracle for you.

Tim Purpura’s got a new job. And not only is that job in baseball, it’s in minor league baseball.

That’s right. The guy who helped to destroy the Astros minor league organization is now the chief operating officer and executive vice president of Minor League Baseball.

I don’t know about you, but here’s hoping he doesn’t do to all of minor league baseball what he did to the Astros. I don’t think the sport could survive. – John Royal
