Astros say playoffs take priority over Swift concert. Twitter says 'LOL!'

The Houston Astros tweeted Wednesday that should the team reach the postseason in 2015, Taylor Swift's 1989 tour stop may get bumped from Minute Made Park. Needless to say, most responses have been “LOL.”

The Astros have had dismal seasons lately.

So when their verified Twitter account posted the Swift concert message about who had dibs on Minute Made Park, the team got some not-so-nice responses.

An hour after it was posted, the tweet was retweeted more than 800 times. Most of those who shared added on their own wisecracks.

The team lost 100 games or more in three consecutive seasons before finishing 70-92 in 2014.
