The Astros are in the AL this year, eh?
Yeah, low taxes keep businesses moving here, among other things.

A lot of people were actually very surprised when Boeing moved to Chicago a few years ago. Their final choice was between the DFW area and Chicago. They claimed they chose Chicago based on the shorter flight times to the north east, which I get (lobbiest in DC, more flight options to Europe, etc). Seems like over time the taxes would be much greater up there though

And yes, Astros are in the same division as the Rangers now. Seems odd, but good as well. I think they are trying to create some kind of rivalry like other states have with local teams.
