I am so gonna miss the soon to be newly American Leagued Houston Astros.
I'll miss the Cubs traveling to Minute Maid Park, playing on that awesome field with that neat little hill in the outfield.
And the train.
Who figured that one out anyway?
The concept ties in so seamlessly with "Astros".
And we can't forget Drayton McClane wishing the Cubs would come down and play in a hurricane.
Just an awesome guy - he'll SO be missed.
But I'm sure new owner Jim Crane is quite the happy man.
This from Ultimate Astros: "McLane turned over the worst team in the majors and an office with a view overlooking Minute Maid Park from left field. He also left Crane a good-luck note and a bottle of Taittinger champagne as an office-warming gift."
They are the worst team in baseball, have some champagne!
Over the last couple years getting rid of Hunter Pence, Roy Oswalt, and Lance Berkman.
And it was a good thing too, because they're all so out of gas.
Like, Lance only got 31 dingers and 94 RBIs for the Cardinals last season.
Jettison the guy.
And finally, the Astros are now an American League team.
They all say that league is a little better than the NL.
Get to play the Angels, the Rangers, the Yankees...
But probably Carlos Lee can just switch over to DH, so no worries!
We'll see how many times the Cubs play the Astros in this newfangled set-up starting next year, and I'm sure to get more opportunities to do more "I Hate The Astros" pages.
And now, the Bears and...young Caleb Hanie.
So it was a loss, but hell.
I remember watching Todd Collins and thinking why, this man is a complete fool.
I actually feel like there's Hope with Hanie, and he might even get to be fun to watch.
