Per Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Houston Astros will not turn to 66-year-old Larry Bowa for their open managerial position, with both Bowa and Astros GM Jeff Luhnow agreeing on the need for a younger manager to go with a younger, rebuilding team.

To sum up the known competition and their ages:

All four come in noticeably younger than Bowa and former manager Brad Mills (also a one-time bench coach for the Red Sox), with our own Tim Bogar in the middle of them all. Porter is the only one who really still verges on that "baseball player" age, but Bogar is still a ways away from 50, which could make him stand out from Martinez, Hale, and DeFrancesco if, indeed, the Astros see age as a major factor.

Bogar's interview with the Astros has been set for Wednesday, with the Astros coming to Tampa Bay so that he won't have to leave his duties.
