"My family and I have happily decided to forego any current outside opportunities and remain part of the Texas Rangers family," Levine said through a release from the club. "We are extremely appreciative of all the opportunities that Jon Daniels, Nolan Ryan and ownership have provided to us. Winning a championship and bringing it home to the Metroplex remains my singular focus."

It certainly isn't an ideal scenario for Levine to walk into, and I certainly don't blame him for foregoing the opportunity. The Astros haven't made the playoffs since 2005, when they were swept by the White Sox, and there is certainly a lot of work to be done for the Astros to return to the postseason -- especially as they prepare to move to the AL West in 2013.
