Comment of the Day: The Astros' Payroll Massacre

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning or afternoon from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We wrote about how the Astros -- that would be the MLB team in town you've been ignoring -- have fired play-by-play guys Brett Dolan and Dave Raymond, who've been putting up with "legend" Milo Hamilton.

One reader noted that's not the only firing going on.

Oh, they've even been firing box office people & people who've worked in the front office for 20 years. It's a massacre.
