The Houston Astros revealed new T-shirts on Monday with Oakland A & # 39; s before their series, which may have multiple meanings.
UPDATE (28.08.): We have reached the end. BreakingT, the company that made the "Dream Crushing" T-shirt, designed it last week when the Astros played the Mariners. During a game on August 22, the Astros were superviral with a dugout. Only 18 hours later BreakingT had the t-shirt ready to go. So just rest, A & D's fans.

When the Houston Astros and Oakland Athletics begin a series of three games on Monday at Minute Maid Park, the Astros have released some brand new T-shirts for their pre-match activities.
The shirts show the faces of a handful of notable Astros players along with the words "DREAM CRUSHING" in capital letters. The Astros claim that the shirts symbolize how they pursue their dreams as a baseball player and as a team.
"When you're a little kid, your childhood dream is to be in the big leagues," said Houston's Tony Kemp. "We're doing that right now, we're dreaming about it and we're having a good time."
It seems, however By coincidence, they just unveiled these T-shirts that same night, they will play their opponent A, who has only 1.5 games behind them, and Oakland has unleashed a furious run in the last few weeks to return to the playoff Racing to come when it looked like the Astros were running away with the crown of AL West at the beginning of the season.
With the A & S at the moment Some of them have interpreted the T-shirts as meaning that the Astros plans to smash Oakland's dreams to overtake them for the Division.
If the Astros actually troll the A & # 39; s they will never admit it. And whether it was intended or not, the shirt actually works both ways. The Astros hope to destroy their own dreams by winning, while smashing Oakland's dreams (with a different meaning) by beating them.
However, with just one game and a halving in the table, Houston is sure to be a highly competitive three-game series this week. After all, none of the teams at the end of the season wants to be forced into the dreaded wildcard game.
