The Houston Astros cheating scandal has been rocking major league baseball.

So far, three managers have been fired with the Astros, Red Sox, and today with the Mets and Carlos Beltran.

Cubs first base coach Will Venable will interview for the Astros' open managerial position on Friday, according to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times.

The Cubs have already granted permission for Venable to interview for the opening.

The other finalists for the job is currently Buck Showalter and Joe Gibbons.

Good luck to whoever gets the job, they will be stepping into quite the mess down in Houston.
