Astros surprising response to criticism from Jomboy host, Twitter mob
The Houston Astros caught some heat over the weekend for a social media post following the team's sweep of the Oakland A's. Houston's social media team basically poked fun at the lack of fans in attendance for the game.
Broadcaster and Jomboy co-host Chris Rose, among others, took issue with the Astros tweet, which was later deleted.
Not a fan of this…it’s via the team-run account.
Have a little class for a fan base that’s hurting. https://t.co/zLN6BL8O2h

Considering how the Astros have been MLB's punching bag for the last few years, and the A's are in fact historically bad, did they really need to delete the tweet?
And does this move signify that the Astros organization no longer wants to be the bad guys in the eyes of baseball fans?
