Ladies and gentlemen you have read correct. Peter Gammons of ESPN tweets the Houston Astros will be making the move
to the American League West. This was part of the deal with Jim Craine when the team was put up for sale by Astros owner Drayton McLane.
They will be competing with the Seattle Mariners over who will be the cellar dwellers of the weakest division in baseball (and I am talking about AL and NL West).
One team sold. Two more to go. Who will be the next team to be sold: the New York Mets by the Wilpons or the Los Angeles Dodgers by Frank McCourt?
Take your pick. My money is neither.
So what do you think about the deal?
