So, Um, I Guess It's ON

Well, yes, it is. We'll let Fox Sports' own Thom Brennaman explain why the Astros can suck it.

"They always say they like things big in Texas..."
So, tell me, then, why is their ballpark such a God-damned bandbox? That's the only thing that fills my Chicago heart with dread. Houston's Minute Maid Park is a joke. The left-field line? Roughly 40 feet from home plate. Oh, and dead center is about 780 feet from home plate. And it's up a hill. A stupid God-damned hill. That was put there on purpose. That even their Hall-of-Fame outfielder hates. plus, there's a flagpole! In play! On the hill!

Beg pardon, but, um, The fuck is that? A ballpark that can turn a game like that. Great. Look, I give it up to the Astros pitchers, Oswalt and Clemens especially, but I resent that park. I always have. Exhibit A as to why building smallparks doesn't solve the offense problem. Look at their offensive splits and you'll see what I mean.

But that's why I'm a little worried. I'd like to see Konerko hit three homers in a game down there, myself, and hope that Podsednik or Iguchi hits a triple or two on to that stupid hill. And that they run for days.

World Series, y'all. At mines, Houston bitches.
