Dead on arrival. 162 comments


Mike Minor was the lone bright spot in the Rangers mostly slapped together rotation.

 

The Rangers rotation to begin the season was: Cole Hamels, Doug Fister, Martin Perez, Matt Moore, and Mike Minor. Or to put it in layman’s terms, it was: Aging, Wing and a Prayer, Failure, Pitiful, and Question Mark.

That’s like going into a street fight with a butter knife.

It’s like after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, we retaliate by dropping a carton of eggs on them.

It’s a wonder the Rangers have won 62 games.

Jon Daniels actually had the cajones to declare he was going for it. Then he built this rotation. He said he was building a playoff-caliber team. He said Adrian Beltre was going to be surrounded by winning.

Daniels has as much credibility as the National Enquirer on April Fool’s Day.

Hamels was dealt off. Fister got injured. Perez was Perez. Moore showed that being the worst starter in MLB in 2017 was no fluke, and Mike Minor was very good.

Remember early in the season when Banister was talking about a six-man rotation? You have one reliable starter (Hamels at the time) and you are thinking about adding another ineffective arm into the equation?

That’s like saying, “Hey, let’s make West Virginia bigger.”

Of course, at the time, the six-man rotation was trying to gain traction across baseball. It didn’t. But what did is the notion of an opener.

The Rangers are doing it again today.

It’s a lost season. Might as well give as many new guys as many innings as you can. Maybe you find a gem. Maybe you find someone who can slide into the rotation. Or maybe they just have stories of that time they pitched a couple of innings in a major league game.

It can’t be too difficult to find a better five than they started with this season. A pair of cleats could put up better numbers than Perez and Moore.

Prediction: Expect Lucas Gialito and Dylan Bundy to be anchoring the rotation next season. They are statistically the two worst starting pitchers in baseball this season.

No reason to think the front office won’t give next year’s team the same fighting chance they give this year’s.

*****
TODAY’S GAME:

Connor Sadzeck (0-0, 0.00) vs. Robbie Erlin (3-6, 4.42)
Game time: 9:10

How the Rangers hit against Erlin.
The Padres have never hit against Sadzeck.

  • JacobMcCandles

    Would take Gialito😎

    • dearmidol

      He certainly has upside.

  • JacobMcCandles

    Erlin…another Ranger pitcher we let go

  • elkaba

    Well Kevin, all I can say is it’s ALMOST worth this whole lousy, stinking season to get to read a gem like this one from you today. Thanks for making baseball bearable this year. (Just another in a long line of laugh until you cry moments for me. 🙂

    • dearmidol

      Thanks, elk. As IH dubbed this site, Making Rangers baseball tolerable since 2014.

      Where is IH, by the way?

      • JacobMcCandles

        I wonder..as well as Flap,Nashcat,Ruff,wet….I know why some left…just don’t know why they don’t ckin

        • calntom

          Has there been any communication from Claps since the hurricane in PR?
          Nash should be here in support of his fR1×k%n A’s since they are doing so well.

          • JacobMcCandles

            No…..and No….kinda know about Ruff and wet…but not Nash???

          • possumrld

            Ruff had it in for me, and for the life of me, I never really knew why. I tried to be as nice as I could to him, but it was no use.Finally I “called him out” on an uncalled for rude remark he made about a rather innocuous comment I had made. Then we had a public and and open “airing” here about our differences. And once again I tried to hold out the olive branch to him, but he would have none of it.
            And then it seemed like to me when everyone else didn’t jump on his “hate possum” bandwagon, he stopped posting. Maybe I am wrong about that, but that is how I perceived the whole very disappointing mess as having gone down.

          • elkaba

            It wasn’t you. It was losing Scary.

          • possumrld

            Of course elk, I knew that. I was just commenting to Jake why I was gone for a short while way back when, perhaps relating as to the “why” of why IH is no longer posting here. Or at least he hasn’t posted here for a good while now.

          • Rowdy Yates

            He told us he was heading to PR to help out relatives. Don’t think any of us have heard from him since.

          • elkaba

            Yep. Haven’t heard from Claps since the PR hurricane.

          • possumrld

            It seems to me a social media thing. Once people are done, for whatever the reaosn(s) they seldom if ever seem to come back.

      • elkaba

        Good question…

      • GoRangers23

        I wish he would check in. I’m starting to think he fell off of one of those cold mountains he so likes to climb. (Hopefully not! ). But I think he just might have gotten tired of fighting with someone on here every time he came on.

        • JacobMcCandles

          I miss him and his pics and he was the only one that agreed with me on starting this rebuild yrs ago….if we would’ve followed that coarse we would be in better position today……..

          • calntom

            Roger that

          • JacobMcCandles

            10-4

        • GoRangers23

          I can’t remember who was arguing with him though.

          • JacobMcCandles

            I imagine u,.could make a good guess….not like it .was the only time

          • possumrld

            Jake. he might have felt like he was being dog piled on. Sometimes it is easy to feel that way when you feel like are the only one who sees something in a certain way, which may be quite different then the rest here see it. You wouldn’t know anything about that feeling, would you Jake? 🙂
            Anyway, I had a bout here a couple of years ago, before I realized this forum isn’t at all like the old MLB / Rangers site, where we use to go at it tooth and nail, and then band together against the crazy Angle’s trolls.
            And even when we disagreed strongly about something, we still mostly walked away as friends, usually agreeing to disagree on whatever the point of disagreement was. Or at least most Rangers fans did not seem to stay mad at each other for very long.
            But I am glad we have this place of refuge to go to now. Because no matter what, we seldom if ever see the type or the level of of hostility here that we saw on the Old Rangers site. And although I do miss some of the old posters, and the fun we used to have there, fighting with some of the Angels Trolls and such, and kidding around with guys like “RunScoishrun, after being here, I don’t think I would ever want to revisit that atmosphere again.

          • JacobMcCandles

            Good and insightful stuff………and I am damn sure I know the feeling. And I underline your sentiments as well about the MLB site….some really good people on there, but more that are not……just miss the days when there was a ton of posters on here.

          • possumrld

            Yes, Jake, I miss those days as well. But some have passed on, as sadly you well know by your own personal experience. And sadly, losing and especially the way the Rangers have done this seaosn tends to cause apathy among many who would otherwise posting be here if we were still in the hunt.
            And moist of us Rangers fans fight the battle of trying to stay interested and trying to have something intelligent sounding or insightful to say, when things are going so badly.
            Others got mad and quit. And while I can sort of understand that, also I sort of don’t understand it. I did completely drop off of here for awhile once a few years ago, because of some the hostilities and personal attacks that I felt had gotten to the pint of being absurd.
            But I came back after a couple of months of retrospect, and reflection, determined not to let one or two rude people run me off. Like you said though, even if they aren’t actively posting anymore, I wish some of the old crowd would at least stop in just to say “howdy”.

          • JacobMcCandles

            Amen….appears you ate your wheeties today

          • Rowdy Yates

            I can’t imagine … SandyMc? … just because she could? But don’t remember anyone giving Ruff a real rough time. And he could easily hold his own verbally. I hope that’s not why he left

          • JacobMcCandles

            No I agree bout Ruff seems he left when he had his second child

          • Rowdy Yates

            Think that makes sense. Between his work, training the hunting dog, and the addition of child #2 he may have felt he had too much on his plate to dedicate time to RR3. But I miss his extremely sarcastic humor and encyclopedic music knowledge. And I miss his and Scary’s give and takes many of which were hilarious.

          • JacobMcCandles

            Yeah his PMs with Ruff,you,and elk are classic

          • Rowdy Yates

            After a 12 pack at 2 am Scary was still going … and I was going to bed.

          • JacobMcCandles

            And pain killers….he was drinking a case the last couple of yrs

          • elkaba

            I think Ruff left because he couldn’t handle losing Scary. He’d lost a best friend a year or two earlier, so Scary’s death just did him in. Place would never be the same for him without his bud.

          • calntom

            Two kids and training a dog is a heavy load. I remember when had our 3rd of 4. I quit playing ball, the bass club and just focused on the boys and their baseball, basketball etc.. There was not any time for anything else. Built a full blown lighted batting cage in the back yard to save time. Had the ole blue Iron Mike pitching machine. Donated that to Irving HS when the boys were done and sold the net on eBay. Lol

  • possumrld

    Spoken as only you can say it, Kev!

  • WhoKnowscs

    Rangers will get probably 2 more wins this weekend but only because they are playing a team that is worse than them.

  • WhoKnowscs

    Is Profar signed for next year?

    • JacobMcCandles

      2 more yrs of control

  • calntom

    The last 20-25 games of 2018 are some of the most important games of year. Not that the Rangers have much/any ML ready pitching coming through the system, but they have to take a good looks at Curtis, Springs, Sampson, Pelham, Sadzeck, Mendez, Jurado, and Butler.

    See where they stack up against ML hitters. What’s in their makeup that can translate to success at this level. What do they need to work on and have ready coming into spring training 2019, AA and AAA that can convert into success on the hill. How does the delivery look? Make sure they have a good routine for readiness. These younger arms need their marching orders going into the offseason or to other competition this fall/winter.

    Hopefully, by the end of ST 2019, the Rangers will find 1 of the younger guys that can step up and perform at the level of another scrap heaper they would have to sign. September games in a rebuild = priceless……..

    If Alfalfa stays healthy, then they can carry 13 arms right off the get go next season. He is a great asset.

    • JacobMcCandles

      I always hated marching..lol

    • CrazyEd

      I wouldn’t plan on 2019 being a big improvement over 2018. An improvement, but not a major one. Out of the players you named only Springs and maybe Sampson look like they will be productive major leaguers. Sadzeck if he can find the same magic pill for curing control problems that LeClerc did. Jurado, Curtis, Butler and Pelham, no. Pelham isn’t ready, needs another year in the minors. I doubt if the other three will ever be ready. If JD can spend some dollars on one or two FA’s on relatively long term contracts, that could happen, but the key will be relatively long term contracts. They would be middle or bottom of the rotation guys. Top of the rotation pitching would just be too expensive. To sumarize, some improvement, but not major.

      • possumrld

        I agree. Maybe the Rangers will hover around the .500 mark next season. I can see that happening. But our rotation for now consists of Minor, and a bunch of Minor league caliber pitchers. And the others are not even top of the line AAA guys.
        So assuming Minor is still good next year “if ” the Rangers could get a couple of descent starting pitchers, and cobble together a couple of 4.50 era guys on the back end, who knows?
        But right now that seems about as likely as Gallo hitting .325 next seaosn

        • CrazyEd

          I like the part about Gallo hitting .325! Ain’t gonna happen. Wrong attitude.
          But, given the proper attitude the turn around could be made.

          The Rangers have a guy in the lower minors, with Gallo like power, that did just that:

          http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?player_id=663799#/career/R/hitting/2018/ALL

          • possumrld

            Well, Jake, most likely no Ranger is going to be hitting .325 next seaosn. But I chose the most unlikely Ranger, other than maybe Ryan Rua, to help me make my point.

          • possumrld

            CrazyEd, I picked the most unlikely guy to do it, besides maybe Ryan Rua, to help me make my point. But I doubt any Ranger will be hitting .325 next season, or the next…
            But one can always hope!

      • calntom

        I could see JD trying out another “Minor” type contract, with 3 years being termed as “relatively long term”.

    • CrazyEd

      If by Alfalfa, you mean Kiner-Falefa, I’d be careful with messing with the Falefa part. He is part Samoan (on his fathers side) and the Falefa family name is actually royalty on Samoa. One of several. There is actually a village named Falefa on the island.

      • JacobMcCandles

        Im guilty of the Alfalfa impart

        • CrazyEd

          I was just using that as a sequay (sp?) into passing along some info on Izzy that some folks probably didn’t know. I doubt anybody really cares, but it was useful.

          • JacobMcCandles

            No……I enjoy the wisdom as usual

      • possumrld

        I just found out a few months ago that I am a quarter of a Mexican. For real!

      • Rowdy Yates

        I’m so out of it I thought he was Hawaiian. Need to catch up I guess! Just been hard since AS break to be motivated about this team which is a shame because there’s a great crop of youngsters in the lineup getting playing experience right now, including IKF.

        • JacobMcCandles

          Thats funny cuz I thought the same

        • CrazyEd

          You’ve got it right, he is Hawaiian. It’s his father that is Samoan. I don’t know about his mother. He also has a sister that plays volleyball for some College, I think in Nevada, but not sure.

          • CrazyEd

            Thanks for everybody showing interest, because I just found out “The Rest of the Story” his mothers side from Wikipedia.

            “Kiner-Falefa is of Samoan, Hawaiian, and Japanese descent.[9] His grandmother is from Hiroshima, Japan.”

            That is an awesome thing to know. I’m too lazy to do the math, but the world came that close to him not being here at all had his grandmother or great grandmother been killed in Hiroshima. Not every person was. In the 60’s, in Japan, I had a girl/woman friend that had the imprint of her Kimono burned into her side and thigh from the bomb blast.

      Was really hoping Vlad Jr would be called up this yr………closest can’t miss player I’ve seen since Carlos Correa….of course I thought Brinson was a lock as well……..ooopsie

  • JacobMcCandles

    I know everyone for the most part is focused on the the Strangers……but some good series coming up

    • possumrld

      Jake, I would watch almost any team play live. But apart from the post seaosn, I don’t care much for watching teams not named the Rangers play. And that is why most of y’all know so much more about teams and players in general than I will ever know.

      • JacobMcCandles

        I just love BB……..

        • CrazyEd

          Me too. I’m sort of addicted. Stay up to odd hours to watch my Yokohama DeNa Baystars. They are kind of like the Rangers. In the Cellar at 56 and 67. If you want a winning baseball team, don’t have me as a fan!

          • possumrld

            lol! CrazyEd, I haven’t seen you posting here, until now. But from what I have seen, I like your style!

        • possumrld

          Yes, Jake, you are a true baseball lover, like a 475 pond man at the Sirloin Stockade buffet!
          While I am more like a “Whataburger drive through line” kind of a guy! 🙂

          • JacobMcCandles

            Haha……there is a Sirloin Stockade in Olkmulgee where Dad’s 1 of 2 offices are at. I eat at Whataburger once a week. Double meat Whataburger Jr,,,,

            I ran the boiler and did janitorial in his building at 12 yrs old

          • possumrld

            There aren’t many Sirloin Stockade’s left, Jake! It is one of those “era” type things that has passed it’s glory days. like Pizza Hut and Stuckey’s. But Whataburger Rocks!
            Cool stuff too, about being your Dad’s Janitor!

          • JacobMcCandles

            When Dad bought the bldg….there was an old black man named Sam that lived in the basement. He was a drinker but a solid man,,,,,,his hands were like leather and he had served in Korea…..he taught me about the boiler…..and taught me about construction….Dad bought a peanut farm and put a trailer on it, took Sam to AA meetings….when he died no one showed up from his family and Dad bought his marker…..Sam was very influential in my life

          • possumrld

            What a moving story, Jake! Your Dad must have been an exceptional man, and a great Father.

            Ever stop at the old Coleman’s burgers in Olkmulgee?

          • CrazyEd

            Nope, I don’t stop. I just keep on Truckin’. The only stop I make is just north of the TX/OK border for gas. Headed the other direction, just south of the border for gas.

      that is theclassic Bannister approach. Take your top RBI guy out of the lineup.

      • Rowdy Yates

        Bani’s been ‘mailing it in’ since the AS break. Which isn’t much worse than when he’s workin’ it!

        • CrazyEd

          I’ve given up on bashing managers since the early 2000’s when the GM’s started running the show. As baseball business is conducted today, the manager just carries out the GM’s dictates. Good, Bad? I have no idea. It’s just the way it is. The manager’s main focus is in game decisions and trying to keep 25 youthful millionaires, or close to it, happy. Not a job that I’d want.

        • possumrld

          Yes, Rowdy, it is very difficult to tell really the difference, isn’t it?

  • JacobMcCandles

    OK…..Trivia time************************************5 top players with OBA over the last three yrs

    Obscure question…..when did ‘raking” become a term? Don’t remember it 20 yrs ago…..

    • CrazyEd

      Not so obscure. Don’t know the answer. Another one that I was thinking about yesterday was “Dial 9” for a home run. It’s interesting, and frustrating, trying to keep up with the jargon.

    • calntom

      Google has it as:
      Uses of the term ‘rake’ in the baseball realm date as far back to 1990. Boston Globe writer Larry Whiteside wrote of Cecil Fielder: “He rakes pitches like that because he’s a low-ball hitter. His power is to right and right-center. They can come inside, but he has the strength like Jim Rice to fight it off.Jun 22, 2012

  • CrazyEd

    Nirvana …. Smoked a rack of ribs yesterday. Used some prunings from our peach trees that I had been saving. Six hours and they are falling off the bone scrumptious. I know, I know, if it ain’t mesquite or oak, it ain’t Texas. I’ll do that next. Doesn’t hurt to experiment. If the racoon the neighbor saw in the back yard keeps hanging around, he’s next. Got a number 2 leg hold that will solve the problem. Smoke Racoon is fine dining.

    • WhoKnowscs

      Hickory.

        I prefer an oak base for coals and hickory to smoke. Too much mesquite gives me indigestion. If I use any mesquite, I go easy with it.

      Ohio. In the early late 60s, early 70s we used to drop off our unskinned raccoons at the fur dealer for 10 to 20 cash money. The fur dealer processed the fur and sold the carcasses if they were fresh. I worked for the guy in HS. $2 an hour and free Strohs while skinning and fleshing.

  • CrazyEd

    Just saw on TV where Charlie Pride was still a minority owner of the Rangers. I thought he had liquidated a while back. Iw know baseball was always one of his passions. Showed up every spring training to hit a little and play for the guys. Baseballs loss was musics gain. He was a pitcher in the (I think) Angels org. Blew out his arm and took up music. There’s more than one way to the hall of fame.

  • CrazyEd

    The Padres are real close to being a power in the NL. They’re farm system is awesome.

    • dearmidol

      The guys on MLB Network Radio are predicting big things from them.

      • calntom

        Lot of tier 1 and 2 on the farm

  • CrazyEd

    Odor turned that bp really fast. Awesome.

    • dearmidol

      His defense has improved greatly.

  • CrazyEd

    The San Diego Ball park has an interesting history. It was a minor league park, then a parking lot, and now a major league park. In it’s minor league days the longest home run in history was hit there. How long was it? Nobody knows. There was a railroad track that ran along the outfield. The home run landed in a passing train headed for LA. As far as anybody knows LA is where it ended up. Dumb, but thought it might be interesting.

    • dearmidol

      I thought this was a new ballpark. It opened in 2004.

      • CrazyEd

        It is, sort of. Originally it was a ball park, then the Padres moved to the mission valley stadium and shared with the Chargers. The present location was converted to a parking lot. Later they built the built the new ball park. In the late 70’s I had jury duty and used to park my car where the ball park is now.

        • dearmidol

          Ah. That makes sense.

    • JacobMcCandles

      1 of the 4 best looking parks nowadays

  • TD30

    Little bit of luck working for the rangers there.

    • dearmidol

      Yes it was. A decent throw would have had him.

  • dearmidol

    Combined no-hitter so far.

  • dearmidol

    I agree with Dave Raymond. What did that accomplish?

    • TD30

      Not a dang thing

  • Keith

    Did I miss something??? Why did our starter pitch 1 inning?

    • dearmidol

      They tried the opener. But only let him go one inning.

      • Keith

        A-ha. Dont really like the “opener” concept but I know teams are trying this but shouldnt he go more than 1 inning?

        • dearmidol

          Yes. It’s silly this way.

        • CrazyEd

          I’m still up in the air on the concept. Sadzeck in his current ability is not the guy to fill the billet. And, Mendez is not the guy to be following him up. It is just two guys, with no options left, that need to be kept on the 40 or expose them to the rule 5 draft in the off season. We’ll see.

          • dearmidol

            The way they did it tonight makes no sense except for the fact that these games from here on out don’t matter so it’s more like spring training. Just giving guys innings.

          • calntom

            Yep. They have to pizz or get off the pot. I bet neither gets exposed unless one falls on his face over the next 15 games.

        • JacobMcCandles

          It’s pretty Damn silly

    • TD30

      Because he is an “opener”

  • dearmidol

    It seems like CJ hasn’t done a game in a long time.

  • dearmidol

    Nice catch.

    Three double plays in four innings.

    • WhoKnowscs

      Feels like they are pitching like the old Perez, not the ____ new one. Reminds me of a game a few years back vs the Red Sox where we had like 5 or 6 double plays in the game.

  • dearmidol

    A little league double play.

  • dearmidol

    That was close. Gusty play by Hosmer.

  • dearmidol

    Mendez is dealing today. Looks relaxed.

  • dearmidol

    Average number of batters a starter faces: 23.

  • calntom

    Met the Hosmer challenge. Good outing.

  • WhoKnowscs

    I’d bring Mendez back out next inning but we all know Banny won’t

  • JacobMcCandles

    @cal

    Scary talked often bout Cecil…..said he swung the bat like a toothpick…..3 people hit a HR Out of Tiger stadium…Cecil twice.

    Irrelevant…but it was one of his fav stadiums….and loved the announcer, can’t think of his name

    • dearmidol

      Ernie Harwell.

      • JacobMcCandles

        Yeah right

  • calntom

    3rd good outing in a row for Mendez and probably a couple more left to close out the year

    • dearmidol

      If the Rangers could have a pitcher they actually developed, it would be huge.

  • dearmidol

    That should do it.

  • dearmidol

    Another DP.

  • calntom

    Springs has been lights out his last 6 outings.
    12 innings. 0 runs, 0 walks, 12 Ks

  • WhoKnowscs

    Passed George Brett.

  • Rowdy Yates

    Home from Nashville and the Rangers up 4-0 in the 9th. Nice start for the weekend!

  • dearmidol

    Where does Raymond get his facts? He just called Beltre the “all-time hits leader.”

    • Rowdy Yates

      Guess you’re supposed to infer “for the Rangers”.

      • dearmidol

        He just clarified it. Active hits leader.

        • Rowdy Yates

          Oh yeah. And since AB played for the Mariners for a decade or so I’m guessing MY the Rangers leader. Adrian top 3 or 4???

          • dearmidol

            Good question.

          • dearmidol

            Michael Young 2230
            Pudge Rodriguez 1747
            Rafael Palmeiro 1692
            Juan Gonzalez 1595
            Elvis Andrus 1548

          • dearmidol

            Ruben Sierra 1281
            Adrian Beltre 1266

          • Rowdy Yates

            Wow! Seventh? I’d never have guessed that far down nor EA being in front of him. That 1266 doesn’t seem possible. AB’s been with the Rangers 9 or 10 seasons hasn’t he? If so that’s only avg of like 120 some hits pers year?

          • dearmidol

            This is his eighth season with the Rangers. Hit totals:
            144
            194
            199
            178
            163
            175
            106
            107 so far.

          • Rowdy Yates

            Hmmm, What a bum!

          • dearmidol

            Trade him.

          • calntom

            Get what you pay for these days…..

          • Nathan Whitten

            He has gotten better almost every year–hurt this year. The trend is definitely up. If you used linear regression the model would have a positive slope. That is a good thing.

          • JacobMcCandles

            And 1 yr with Boston and started with the Dodgers

  • dearmidol

    Okay, let’s end this thing.

  • dearmidol

    Awesome pitch. You can’t let that go by.

  • calntom

    K’d the side on 25 pitches

    • dearmidol

      He has been unstoppable.

      • calntom

        No runs since July 25th

  • JacobMcCandles

    @ Kev….right on with Harwell….
    Scares fav was Jack Buck

  • JacobMcCandles

    Profar is confusing to me so Damn inconsistent but looks great sometime

  • WhoKnowscs

    So if Leclerc pitches like this next season but Rangers start out like they did this season, do you flip him in a trade?

  • WhoKnowscs

    And with that win we officially avoid 100. Not that I didn’t think we would get 1 win in 16 games(Although they did say the Giants were in an 11 game losing streak going into tonight.) But will we beat 67 wins? (2014)
