One big chicken. 37 comments


 

The Rangers are hedging their bets this season. If you’re not coming for the baseball then for sure you will come for the two-pound chicken tender.

Two pounds.

It’s the gastric cousin of the two-foot long Boom Stick hot dog.

It’s a good thing the Ballpark is sponsored by Globe Life. The two pounds of fried anything is heart attack inducing. You will need the life insurance.

You have to love the name, though. The Fowl Pole. It goes for $27.50. That includes fries.

At that price I predict chickens won’t be flying, at least not off the shelf.

    Looks like it will be a advantageous year to be ready to sell by the July 31st deadline as MLB and MLBPA have agreed to make that the only deadline. No trades after July 31st.

    • CrazyEd

      Good! That means we no long have to explain to the casual fan how the waiver trade system worked.

      • calntom

        That does take a load off

    I guess Chicken is the theme, so here’s “Kickin’ Chicken.”

      We’re playing two games today, Royals and Cubs… split squad.

      • Mr.C

        Thanks!

        Lineup looks better on that game.

        (((( REFRESH ))))

        This is a big day. WE can pick up 2 big wins. I don’t know how far we are out of 1st in the Cactus League. It’s stupid to use AL and NL standings. There’s a lot riding on this.
        I will look up standings. I know y’all are waiting with bated breath.

    This might be Connor Sadzeck’s last chance.

    • CrazyEd

      To bad too … the good news for him is that somebody is sure to grab him off the waiver wire. Bad news is he’ll figure it out and come back to haunt the Rangers. “That’s the way baseball go.”

      • Mr.C

        7 relievers for the roster:
        Unless they decided to squeeze Hammels in, Sadzeck should join LeClerc, Kelly, McAllister, Chavez, Chris Martin and Springs.

        I think Hammels will start in AAA pending callup once one of the 5 starters arms fall off.

        That said, Sadzeck should make the team.

          IKF gives the Rangers the option to carry 8 in the pen

          • Mr.C

            You mean Davidson, right?

          • calntom

            Negative. IKF is the backup catcher and can play utility infield. They did that with IKF last year and could have a 3 man bench.

          • Mr.C

            Roger.
            But I think they want IKF to play catcher only this season. Woodward invited Logan Forsythe and I’m almost sure he will be the utility infielder.

            Davidson, is another arm they can use as the 8th reliever.

    • calntom

      Sadzeck makes the team regardless of tonight’s performance. I think he gets the whole year to find it.

  • CrazyEd

    Obvious to the most casual observer, but now it’s pretty much done deal.

    Jon Daniels said he is confident that Jeff Mathis and Isiah Kiner-Falefa will be the Rangers catchers on Opening Day

    • dearmidol

      Who else would it be?

  • JacobMcCandles

    Could buy a case of beer and a rotisserie from Albertsons

    Elvis is FANTASTIC!

    Pence is FANTASTIC 2 !!

  • calntom

    Why did Sadzeck only pitch 2/3 of an inning? 4 hitters was his limit?

    • Mr.C

      I supposed they tried him as the “opener” for Sampson.

      • calntom

        Hit one, walked one, stuck out one…….

        • CrazyEd

          Yup! Despite the fear of him finally figuring it out with some other team, I just don’t see him making the team. He MIGHT even clear waivers, but doubt it. Unless the Rangers just decide that being as they are in a rebuild they can put up with the wildness for this year.

  • Mr.C

    Elvis is a MONSTER !!!

  • Mr.C

    Any player with a “Martin “ in their name should be banned from Texas Rangers baseball

  • possumrld

    It seems if we want to blow a nice lead, no matter the season or the year, it has now become a “Rangers tradition”, to just bring a “Martin” in to pitch.

  • CrazyEd

    Well that reeked. Rangers are still leading in the KC game. They’re trying to blow that one too.

  • CrazyEd

    Glory be!!! They hung on and won despite their best efforts to do otherwise.

  • CrazyEd

    I wish that KC game had gone a few more innings. I would have loved to see some balls hit to the outfield the Rangers put in.

    Great to be home. A decade of generally great weather and good games and this year not so much. Surprised it took this long for the odds to catch up to us. Regardless, still enjoyable and just wish we’d been able to see more of the Rangers than half of one wet game.

  • JacobMcCandles

    Two totally different games…just ST but Davidson and Bubba have been disappointing…..Elvis needs to save some!!

    • Mr.C

      Elvis is FANTASTIC

    • CrazyEd

      Good grief Jake xxx Bubba has had one year of low A ball what do you expect?

      He’s just filler, a JIC player that wouldn’t have even seen playing time if it wasn’t two games. Give the kid a break. Davidson, however, have at it. He’s been around, has some big league experience, and they even gave him a number on his uni.
