What if.

Baseball owners are notoriously cheap. And they usually get what they pay for. See the Rangers last four seasons and their next few for proof. The passing of Hank Aaron is a reminder of what could have been. And an even bigger reminder of what is. Baseball owners and executives […]

Goodbye, Hank.

This one hurts. Hank Aaron was my favorite player. Hank Aaron was everything that was good about baseball. Hank Aaron was everything good about us. One by one my boyhood heroes have leaving this Earth. Immortal on the baseball field only. In the past six months we’ve lost Tom Seaver, […]

Leodys Taveras. Here is what they said about Taveras: “Taveras was clearly the best center fielder in the […]

Looking ahead.

It’s difficult trying to project the Rangers opening day roster of 26 based on the current 40-man roster. Mainly, because it’s incomplete. And, because there are still a few questions. Like, will they have a six-man rotation, which is being talked about around baseball this year since last year most […]
