    DALLAS -- The Astros turned to their division rival and the defending World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals for their next general manager, announcing late Wednesday they had hired Cardinals vice president of player procurement Jeff Luhnow.

    Astros owner Jim Crane will introduce Luhnow on Thursday at a 1 p.m. CT press conference at Minute Maid Park in Houston.

    "We are very pleased to have Jeff as the new general manager of the Houston Astros," Astros president and CEO George Postolos said. "Jeff is the perfect fit for the Astros because of his track record in scouting and player development during his eight-plus seasons with the Cardinals.
