Posted Saturday April 20, 2013, About: Report: Big Ten to realign divisions in 2014
The article right above says Rutgers is in the East. It would be nice if they didn't split Purdue and Indiana though. It wouldn't be perfect geography, but I think they should have put Wisconsin in the East and Indiana in the West to keep the rivalry together.

Saying the Big Ten has 10 power teams would probably be stretching it.
Posted Tuesday March 05, 2013, About: Rangers ready to dump Ryan?
To provide some context for you all, this was all over the radio here in Dallas today. Jon Daniels has taken over all final decisions on Baseball matters for the Rangers. Rick George has taken over all final business decisions. These are both responsibilities that in the past stopped at Ryan. Not much else is know for sure, but speculation is that Jon Daniels and Nolan Ryan are having disagreements on certain decisions regarding how to move forward with the team this season.
Personally, I hope this blows over, because losing Nolan Ryan would be a bad blow for the team. Jon Daniels has earned my trust, but I believe that to be successful we need them both. I hope they can get things settled and continue to guide the Rangers into the future.

Morse sounds just like the kind of player the Rangers would have loved to sign in the 90's, when we tried to hit our way o championships. This is not the 90's. I don't want Morse here.

Indeed.

Exactly.

We have O.J. Mayo. Don't laugh. He's been excellent for most of this year. With a healthy Dirk and some other improvements, he could be successful here.

You know, I'm not tha wild about him coming here anymore. After all the drama last season and offseason... I don't want him here, I don't care how good he is. I'll give him a chance if we sign him, but I'm kind of hoping we don't.

If the Rangers want to give him another look, now that he's "fully recovered", I wouldn't oppose it. Sign him really cheap, and if all goes well, we have a surprise boon for the rotation, which would be great for us, considering we missed out on Greinke and Shields.

I'd be happy to have him in Texas, but only for a reasonable price. Unfortunately, Scott Boras is not known for reasonable pricing.

Indeed it is.
Posted Wednesday January 02, 2013, About: Holland eyes Cy Young, Hall of Fame future
Also, this is slightly off topic, but did they go through and wipe out everybody's comments or something? I haven't been on to comment in a long time, but I used to have WAY more than 17.
Posted Wednesday January 02, 2013, About: Holland eyes Cy Young, Hall of Fame future
There's no reason we couldn't trade a pitcher, as long as it's as part of a package for another, better pitcher. Assuming a rotation of Darvish, Harrison, Lewis, Ogando, and Holland, I would love to trade Holland for someone better. A package of him and Olt ought to be able to get someone reliable to shore up the rotation a bit more until (and possibly even after) Feliz gets back.

That being said, we seem like we're keeping him, and if that's so, this is the exact attitude I want him to have. Do I think he'll achieve all of those things? Absolutley not. But it's better to aim high and fall a bit short than to be mediocre.
Posted Saturday October 13, 2012, About: Rangers ready to swing for Greinke?
That's quite possibly the worst idea on this entire post.

Get rid of Wash, the guy who has taken them to the playoffs three straight years, including back to back World Series', when franchise had never even won a playoff series before in 50 years? Yeah, sounds like a fantastic idea.
Posted Saturday October 13, 2012, About: Rangers ready to swing for Greinke?
He's not a junkie. Seriously people? The guy used to have a problem, but he's turned his life around. He had two incidents. Things like that happen to a person who is addicted. He has bounced back quickly both times. Far cry from being a junkie.
Posted Saturday October 13, 2012, About: Rangers ready to swing for Greinke?
NO. NO WAY. WE ARE NOT TRADING PROFAR. OR ANDRUS. Maybe Olt.

I agree we need a top of the rotation pitcher, but we can afford to go out and get one (especially if Hamilton doesn't resign). There is no reason to trade away one of the top shortstops in the league or one of the top prospects in the league.
Posted Tuesday October 09, 2012, About: Twins could promote entire Class AAA staff
Agreed. I hate the whole "Team can't win? Can the coach!" mentality. I mean, it's one thing if you have a group of stars and the team can't win, but it's not always the manager's fault, certainly not if he doesn't have much talent to work with. Also, if he has a proven track record like Gardenhire, he should be given a little space.
I'm astounded and frustrated that people are actually talking about moving on without Ron Washington here in Texas. EXCUSE ME? You want to get rid of the guy who took this team from last place to annual championship contenders, this year's collapse notwithstanding?
I think our market down here is spoiled because at one point the Cowboys were good enough to win three Super Bowls in four seasons and somehow we got the idea that if you aren't winning it all you aren't cutting it. We want to fire Wash because he has missed on two chances to win the big one, but we forget that for the 35 or so seasons before he got here the Rangers never even won a playoff series (or even made the playoffs at all, for the most part).
Posted Tuesday October 09, 2012, About: Twins could promote entire Class AAA staff
Intriguing proposition. Greinke does seem to prefer smaller markets to larger ones. I think it could be a really nice fit if they find room to pay him.
Posted Wednesday August 01, 2012, About: Texas under fire for Feliz injury?
I never understood why they wanted to move him to the rotation. It would have made since if they needed another arm, but at the beginning of this season, they didn't. We were bringing in Darvish to go along with Derek Holland, Colby Lewis, Matt Harrison, and Alexi Ogando. Then they switch Feliz, an excellent closer to the rotation and stick Ogando, a proven effective starter, back to the bullpen. WHY? I've been wondering that all season and I still don't have an answer. And now Feliz needs surgery. Great.

Haha oh yeah, I forgot that they had beaten South Carolina State. Frankly, the way they played against us, I'm surprised they managed that.
