, the rest is TLDR Astros
fan since the early 90's, grew up with the Killer B's poster on my wall. I am all in for the rebuild, 2017 AL West Champs, ya heard it here first.
Adopted the Rays
in 2008, the year they dropped the "Devil". Carl Crawford was my favorite player in the league, they had just drafted David Price and it gave me another reason to root against the Red Sox and Yankees and all their bandwagon fans who were probably at an all time obnoxious level at that time, coming off the Sox World Series win. Bought my first Rays gear early that spring, had no idea that was going to be their breakout season. Highlight of the season was getting called a "bandwagon" fan from a Red Sox fan (Oh the irony) after the Rays eliminated them in the ALCS. Been hooked ever since.
Really tough for me with the Stros moving to the AL this year, I have probably watched 100 more Rays games in the last 5 years than my beloved Astros, and invested a lot of time watching them grow into the team they are now. Can't just drop them at this point but when push comes to shove I'm an Astros fan.
