Remember When The Astros Moved The Date Of Taylor Swift's Concert?

We were all making fun of them when they did it. Now, the joke's on us.

In December, months before the start of the MLB season, the Houston Astros' Twitter account published a simple tweet related to a potential scheduling conflict.  

But considering that the Astros were coming off a 92-loss season in 2014 and an 111-loss season in 2013, some people couldn't resist but mock the possibility of the Astros making the playoffs and shoving Swift aside. 

Numerous sports blogs (including this one) scoffed at the idea that the organization was close to fielding a playoff team -- again, understandably so. 

After all, they weren't supposed to be good until 2017.

The Astros and Taylor Swift ended up rescheduling her concert back in July when the team was just one game back of the Angels for the AL West lead.


It now appears they were completely justified in rescheduling that Taylor Swift concert, especially after they beat the Yankees handily in the AL Wild Card game on Tuesday night. They will be playing the Kansas City Royals in the ALDS.

Houston is scheduled to host Kansas City in Game 3 on Oct. 11 and Game 4 (if necessary) on Oct. 12.

Looks like the joke's on us.
