Nothingness.   Recently updated !

During a baseball season, this is an easy blog to maintain. Just watch what is happening and comment on it. During the off-season, not so easy. But at least there was always a light at the end of the tunnel. Now, there is no light. Only an endless tunnel. And, […]


The state of baseball.   Recently updated !

Don’t expect to see baseball as usual for a long time. Assuming no fans are allowed in, it will take roughly or seventy people to actually stage a baseball game. You’d have, with sure to be expanded rosters, twenty-eight players per team. Four umpires. A manager and coaching staff for […]


Shin-Soo Hero.

Shin-Soo Choo. If you weren’t a fan of his before, you pretty much have to be one now. Here is a man who remembers where he came from and is willing to give back. Yesterday, Choo donated one thousand dollars to every one of the one-hundred-ninety-one minor leaguers in the […]


Freak injuries.

Chalk up Rangers pitcher James Jones with one of the more unusual off-field injuries. While stories like this are humorous, the time lost and the damage to a career are not funny at all. Jones came to the Rangers from the Mariners after the 2015 season along with Tom Wilhelmsen, […]

Ready, set, wait.

It’s ready. And it looks wonderful. The Rangers new ballpark was set to open today. Instead, this worldwide mess. No throwing out the first pitch to christen the new park. No throwing out the first insult at Rougned Odor. Both will have to wait. No first home run or first […]


Next All-Star.

Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com took out his crystal ball and named the one future All-Star for every team in the A.L. West.  Either he needs to take his crystal ball into the shop or the Rangers are in some trouble. Because for every other team, he lists a prospect that […]


Gallo update.

Here is how Joey Gallo is staying in shape during the shutdown. What could possibly go wrong here?


Agreements.

“Millionaires fighting billionaires for dollars.” That’s how MLB Network Radio’s Jim Duquette described the squabbling that was going on about the current, unfortunate work stoppage happening in baseball. It’s not because of a strike or lockout, which is the root of all past work stoppages. But it came down to […]
