SAN DIEGO — With the Astros and Rays not having met since last year’s playoffs, scouting done remotely this year, and analytical data limited given the abbreviated season, both teams are looking for whatever edge they can get when it comes to inside info on the other.Could the Astros have a secret weapon in general manager James Click?Having spent 15 years inside the Rays organization and reaching vice-president status before being hired by the Astros in February, Click has intimate and extensive knowledge about the abilities of Tampa Bay’s players, manager Kevin Cash’s tendencies, general manager Erik Neander’s preferences and the organizational philosophies.Veteran manager Dusty Baker, who joined the Astros this season and hasn’t seen the Rays firsthand since 2011, said Click should be an asset."We will discuss that because he was recently with them,'' said Baker, 71. "He’s seen the evolution of their organization, he’s seen the evolution of Cash. He speaks highly of their organization and highly of Cash. So, yeah, we will lean on him ... and he’ll have a lot of info.''Click, 42, said he spent much of Friday texting congratulations and other things with his former colleagues with the Rays.He acknowledged the oddness of the situation: "On a scale of zero to weird, it’s going to be weird.''But Click pointed out there have been similar situations involving on- and off-field personnel, including several current Rays staffers, such as front-office executive Bobby Heck and third-base coach Rodney Linares, who had long careers with the Astros and were on the other side last year. And similar to how recently former Rays such as Charlie Montoyo (Blue Jays), Rocco Baldelli (Twins), Joe Maddon (Angels) and Derek Shelton (Pirates) are managing elsewhere, and Chaim Bloom is running the Red Sox. (Also of note, if the Rays advance to the World Series, they could face another longtime former colleague in Dodgers baseball operations chief Andrew Friedman.)Click tried to downplay the value of what information he might have."It’s one of the really tricky things about playing against the Rays because they are constantly changing, they are constantly improving, they’re constantly adapting to the roster that they have,'' Click said."The things that I know about those players and Cash and his tendencies may come into play, and I hope that I can add a little bit and anticipate a little bit what they may do."But at the same time that’s one of the impressive things about their roster is they continue to adapt, they continue to find new talented players. And even if you anticipate what they will do, we still have to go out there and beat them. We feel pretty good about the roster that we have. We’re the reigning AL champs, and we plan to go out there and prove that we can win the same again.''
