Well since Ash was a shitty QB with 3 turnovers yesterday, I can only think it makes Texas better.

NY will have Arod back next year, so won't have as much money to spend.

What worse is that confuses being patriotic with being religious, like you can't be one without the other.

I don't see the Rangers bringing him back as anything more than a NRI
Commented on Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update on Sep 1 2014, 2:44p
I think playing in Seattle had more to do with his offensive down turn than anything else.
Commented on Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update on Sep 1 2014, 2:41p
I don't think there's much additional risk over that of any other starting pitcher

Really, dealing Elvis makes the most sense given our limited resources.

I wouldn't be surprised if he was using amphetamines

His full season FIP and xFIP are 4.34 and 4.30

I agree with you there.
Commented on Poll -- Colby Lewis and the 2015 rotation on Sep 1 2014, 12:42p
If he's not in the rotation then he's likely to get traded or DFA'd this offseason.
Commented on Poll -- Colby Lewis and the 2015 rotation on Sep 1 2014, 12:41p
As the team was constructed this year, when it was expected we'd have good pitching
Commented on Poll -- Colby Lewis and the 2015 rotation on Sep 1 2014, 12:39p
And if just two of them come back and contribute, will it still be enough?

Ricky Henderson maybe?

I think expecting Fielder, Choo and Profar to all come back from injury to contribute offensively immediately

My argument was that the Rangers would be better served getting 1 good SP via trade/free agency

I'm not expecting him to be his old self when he comes back, which would be #2-3 starter

I think it had more with his reluctance to take a statistical-minded approach to managing.

Midseason isn't optimistic, it's 14-15 months post TJS. Optimistic would be in May at the 12 month mark.

Well we will also have a mid-season replacement built in with Martin Perez.

Well, to be fair the argument last night was whether he could be a cheap and viable 4th starter.

If they didn't let Clemens in why would they let Pettite?

That leaves minimal margin for error with 3 guys coming back from injury

So you're arguing that we do nothing to fix the offense

He would be cheaper because like you many teams would focus on his full season numbers

To me, it basically comes down to how many resources do the Rangers have available for acquistions, either through FA or trade

The difference is we a have a surplus of cheap talent in the bullpen

Hart is coming back from knee surgery and is playing in offense-killing Seattle.

I think it's reasonable to expect someone coming back from not pitching for as long as he did

I read one of the more recent analyses and I thought there were several parameters that they didn't define well enough to tease out meaningful results.

Cuddyer looks like the best bet as a full time outfielder.

Until you saw him play in the field at least.

So a 3.71 ERA, 4.00 FIP and 4.21 xFIP wouldn't cut it for you?
Commented on Thoughts on a 3-2 Rangers loss on Aug 31 2014, 11:13p - 1 reply
I think that's a waste of salary and a roster spot given all the guys we have that are capable
Commented on Thoughts on a 3-2 Rangers loss on Aug 31 2014, 11:09p - 1 reply
I could see Cuddyer being an option as a free agent, but otherwise you're looking at a platoon or someone old.
