Astros too busy with logo, unis to mess with Tal's Hill right now

With the Mariners announcing that they're bringing the fences in next year, McTaggart asked if the Astros might do something about the center-field fence at Minute Maid Park. Crane has expressed an interest in removing Tal's Hill, anyway, so might they cause harm to two birds with one simple stone?

Not yet.

"With all the rebranding stuff, we have our hands full and that's going to be the focus of what we're doing."

Furthermore, since not too many balls are hit to Tal's Hill, Luhnow says it doesn't really matter, and the Astros have fast center-fielders, anyway.
