i'm also an Astros fan, as I was born in Texas and lived in Houston until I was 13. I grew up going to Astros games at the Astrodome when Biggio and Bagwell were still young in their careers.
Anyways, this is F'ing retarded. This is as pointless to "end violence" as renaming the Washington Bullets to the Washington Wizards because of the "crime problems plaguing DC". Yes, the NBA team the Bullets were the main reason for the DC violence and crime.
I didn't know the MLB had a liberal stance on gun control. That's one of the few issues i'm conservative about. Guns save lives and criminals will obtain them when no one else has them.
