Attended 15 Rangers games in 1973 while working in Arlington. I tend to be very old school baseball, and with Nolan Ryan as Pres it is nice to see this team playing well.

Went to college in Dallas area. I lived in Arlington in the summer of 1973. Met a bunch of players, and when I was in college two of my favaorite interviews were with Dave Nelson (2nd base) and Frank Luchessi.

I never expected the Rangers to be good, but always hoped they would be competitive. The 2010 season has been immensely fun.

The only issue with Rua replacing Rosales is he shouldn't play short stop.
