Late last year Taylor Swift announced the Houston dates of her world tour. The schedule had her going to play Minute Maid Park on October 13. At the time, no one considered the Astros to be a serious playoff threat. Well, except maybe the Astros themselves:

A lot of people laughed at that. Now, however, with the Astros a game out of first place and currently occupying the top Wild Card position in the AL, it’s not a joke in the least. So:
Astros must be sniffing playoffs. Taylor Swift show at Minute Maid move from Oct. 13 to Sept. 9.

I guess you can say that the folks in charge of turning over Minute Maid Park from baseball to other events are . . . out of the woods.
UPDATE: Stuff like this brings out the best in Internet Content:
@craigcalcaterra they got a lot of criticism for that tweet about moving the date of the concert, but now they can Shake It Off.

@craigcalcaterra I’m just glad there’s no bad blood between the ‘Stros and Swift.
