MLB players have spoken, and Houston Astros fans won't like what they have to say.

In a recent poll conducted by The Athletic, a survey of 200 big leagues agreed that Yankee Stadium has baseball's most intimidating postseason atmosphere. The Stadium received 43% of the vote -- 30% more than runner-up Dodger Stadium (13.8%) and 33% more than third-place Minute Maid Park (10%).

Astros fans may not agree with the poll results, but they shouldn't be surprised. Yankee Stadium is notorious for its rabid fans and overwhelming size, not to mention its century-long winning tradition. Players have been scared to play in New York for over a 100 years now. As good as Houston as been recently, the team has only become a true powerhouse in recent years.

And while Astros fans are known for being intense, Yankee fans are simply on another level. There are also a lot more of them, considering how much bigger New York is compared to other cities.

Perhaps Houston fans can use these results as bulletin board material to bring even more fire and intensity to this year's playoffs. The Astros currently have the best record in the American League and are shooting for their fourth pennant in six seasons. They also have the second-best World Series odds (+380) on FanDuel Sportsbook's MLB odds, behind only the Los Angeles Dodgers (+290).

With Houston and New York potentially on another postseason collision course, perhaps their fans can settle the matter once and for all.
