Comment of the Day: The Day The Astros Died

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, 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.

The Astros are moving to the American League, and Astro fans aren't taking it well.

We're not saying the anti-AL venom is over the top, but one commenter to Sean Pendergast's "It's not that bad" analysis said, "You claim to be a baseball fan, but fail to realize that the American League doesn't play baseball."

Another, on our news item on the announcement, also went big.
