13 Reasons the Astros Should be in the American League in 2013

Where will the Astros of the Future be the future? National League? American League? Atantic League? I say it should be the American League, and here is why:

The Top 13 Reasons the Astros Should be in the American League in 2013:

#13: Ed Wade can trade with the Phillies even more since he doesn't have to worry about helping a team in his own league.

#12: With the DH in place, more chances for position players to bunt.

#11: Lee Greenwood didn't sing I'm Proud to Be a National did he?

#10: The American League is first among the leagues, alphabetically that is.

#9: "Hey Brad Ausmus, we're playing at least 18 games in California this season, want to come join the coaching staff?"

#8: Astros jump into race with Milwaukee to become the first team to represent both leagues in the World Series.

#7: Who wouldn't pay to see the expression on Zach Levine's face the first time a DH steps to the plate at Minute Maid Park?

#6: With the Blue Jays coming to town every year, Minute Maid Park will be filled with O Canada! at least three times a season.

#5: Increased chance that Milo Hamilton will get a chance to call a game at his 60th Major League stadium-Minnesota's Target Field.

#4: What's more classy than umpires in burgandy sport coats? Oh wait, they don't wear those anymore.

#3: Projections indicate that in 2013, 106 NL losses will be worth only 102.7 AL losses.

#2: Manager still has a chance to show off his "double switch" prowess during inter-league play

#1: Two Words: Bud. Selig.
