As we speculated this morning, the Astros moved quickly and have already called the Tampa Bay Rays seeking permission to interview Andrew Friedman (via Stacy Long).

The Houston Astros have “made the call” to ask the Tampa Bay Rays for permission to speak with Andrew Friedman about their vacant general manager’s position, according to Jim Bowden on SiriusXM’s Inside Pitch today. Bowden said he didn’t know what the answer was.

The Astros fired general manager Ed Wade last night.

In addition to Friedman, there is speculation that the Astros may go after Gerry Hunsicker, who was the Astros GM from 1995-2004.
