Astros Manager Bo Porter, former the Nationals' third base coach, remembers well when his tenure ended in Washington.

Bo Porter still relies on Davey Johnson in his new role leading the Astros

Managing in the majors leagues is Bo Porter's dream job, but for the time being, he's the third base coach of a team with a legitimate chance to win the World Series.

In a statement, General Manager Mike Rizzo said he supported Bo Porter’s decision and even encouraged him to become a manager.

Nationals third base coach Bo Porter will be named the next manager of the Houston Astros on Thursday morning, but Porter will remain with the Nationals for the duration of their season and playoff run.
