cause Houston has always been in the NL. Milwaukee moved from the AL to the NL.....then, when Selig needed a team to go to the AL, instead of sending his own team back, he sent the Astros. Personally, I see this as a slight against the Astros. Just as Stern seems to have it in for the Spurs, Selig seems to have it in for the Astros. Plus, I like the strategy in the NL much more. I like that a manager has to adjust to having to work around his pitcher.
