Phil GarnerPhil Garner will manage the Houston Astros for at least two more season. With his contract set to expire after next season, Astros GM Tim Purpura worked to get the extension.

"I feel very comfortable with Phil. We work well together and that has grown this past season," Purpura said. "I have a comfort level with what Phil is doing, a comfort level with how he goes about his business."

"You feel like you have a partner in this," Purpura said. "I think you have to have those kinds of relationships."

Astros owner Drayton McLane Jr. backed the extension.

"Our goal has always been to bring a World Series championship to Houston, and we have come closer to reaching that goal under Phil's tenure as manager than at any other point in the history of the franchise," McLane said.
