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.

Andy Behrens talks about Mitch Mooreland's power, and how there is no doubt now he is hitting with power. Oh by the way, Berens says his 417 foot home run last night was the shortest home run he has hit this year.

Astros to the American League. Is it realignment time?

I don't mind the Astros moving into the AL West according to this article in Big League Stew at Yahoo.  I have a feeling the Astros wouldn't be wild about it though.

Somebody put something cool up to comment on

I don't know how to put up fan shots, or maybe I'm not allowed to, but I'm reading weird stories in baseball, almost exclusively in yahoo today.

Name the fomer Ranger entering the Hall of Fame this weekend

I had the pleasure of seeing 15 games in the 1973 Texas Rangers baseball season.  That team was not very good, although for a month in the summer they played pretty decent baseball.  The manager...
