Astros Vs. Cardinals: Lance Berkman 'Hates' Changes To Astros

Not many people who love the Houston Astros are happy with the direction of the team right now, and perhaps none has been more vocal about it than Lance Berkman.

The former beloved Astros star and current St. Louis Cardinals slugger has been on record with his displeasure over the team's upcoming move to the American League. Now, in a blog from the Houston Chronicle, Berkman has added the changes to Minute Maid Park's outfield to his list of grievances.

"I hate the move to the American League and I hate what they’re doing to the outfield," the former Astro said Wednesday as he was back in St. Louis before going on a rehab assignment in Memphis. "I hate it."

The Astros have replaced the Citgo sign above the Crawford Boxes with advertising and is considering moving the signature train from above left-center field and making changes to Tal’s Hill.

In 2010, Berkman was traded from the Astros, which he helped lead to the 2005 World Series, to the New York Yankees.
