Houston Astros Make MLB History

I just posted the following on my Facebook page....check out the UPDATE in the post to find out what history in MLB the Houston Astros have accomplished today.

From Michael Beckman Facebook page, Sept. 17, 2017 at 6:00pm CT:

"Wow   Wow   -  After facing 3- 100+ loss seasons just a few years ago - for the first time since 2001-the Houston Astros (who have been to the World Series one time- but never have even won 1 World Series game in their history)  - have  just clinched the AL West Division title!

UPDATE:   I just found out that the Houston Astros made history today by being the first and only team in MLB history to win a division title in 3 different divisions.  The National League West, National League Central and now American League West."

Of course, to make that history we [Houston Astros] had to have our team moved to three different divisions.  We as Houston fans can take that in two positive ways [I won't get into any negative ways-that probably include the real reason we were moved]: 1. the divisions we were moved to lobbied to have the Astros in their division because they loved our team; or 2. The teams in the divisions we moved from lobbied to have us moved out of their division because they were afraid of playing the juggernaut Astros so many times a year. 

Tales reports, you decide.  :-)
