A holiday song: "We Need Some Rangers Baseball Now"

It's time for my annual (poorly parodied) Rangers Christmas carol. This year's inspiration is "We Need a Little Christmas." Enjoy. Or roll your eyes. Whichever works for you. Push play on this video (the "Glee" version was the closest to my lyrics) and read along ... We Need Some Rangers... Continue reading "A holiday song: "We Need Some Rangers Baseball Now"" »

Rangers fans enjoy YU-letide celebration

Ever since the bidding ended on Dec. 14, fans have been waiting ... and waiting ... and waiting ... and waiting to find out who won the rights to negotiate with Japanese-Iranian pitching phenomenon Yu Darvish. Yep. Just the RIGHTS TO NEGOTIATE. It's strange how Japan does baseball business, but... Continue reading "Rangers fans enjoy YU-letide celebration" »

A farewell to an arm

Dear C.J. Wilson, First of all, thank you for the 16 wins in the 2011 season. You might not have had great success in October, but I will not overlook the effort you gave to make sure the Rangers were indeed playing in October for a second straight year. Also,...

JD serves up Joe Nathan signing for Thanksgiving

It's been said time and time again, but it can't be said enough. Jon Daniels is a ninja. I feel like I've been pretty good at monitoring the MLB trade rumors. But tonight, out of nowhere, T.R. Sullivan tweeted that the Rangers had signed Joe Nathan. What? Where did that... Continue reading "JD serves up Joe Nathan signing for Thanksgiving" »

Making no apologies and moving forward

I appear to be in a minority among my Rangers fan friends. And not just because I don't live in Texas. I'm in the minority because I don't view the 2011 season as a disappointment. Sure, the last two games (or really just Game 6) of the World Series were... Continue reading "Making no apologies and moving forward" »

Rangers come up short in Game 7, Series

It's hard to know what to say after a World Series like that. For the second year in a row, the Rangers failed to bring the big trophy back to Arlington. As I watched last night, I had a sense of peace. Far more than I had during Game 6.... Continue reading "Rangers come up short in Game 7, Series" »

The Morning After Game 6

Last night was such a huge letdown. I keep reading all these headlines about how Game 6 was the best game ever. Really? Unless you're a Cardinals fan or a neutral fan, that statement is not true. Didn't everyone see all the errors and missed scoring chances? Or did the... Continue reading "The Morning After Game 6" »

Rangers Blow Plenty of Chances, Series Heads to Game 7

I honestly don't have words right now. I feel nothing but misery and nausea. Good thing I write a little bit as the game progresses. This game was such a mess. Both teams left the bases loaded more than once. Five errors between the two teams, and, honestly, that is... Continue reading "Rangers Blow Plenty of Chances, Series Heads to Game 7" »

Napoli Is the Hero; Lifts Rangers to Game 5 Win, 3-2 World Series Lead

Tonight may very well have been the last time C.J. Wilson pitched in a Rangers uniform. Unfortunately, it did not end with a win or even a curtain call. It's a shame, really, because even though he's been bad in the postseason, his regular season efforts are a factor in... Continue reading "Napoli Is the Hero; Lifts Rangers to Game 5 Win, 3-2 World Series Lead" »

Dutch delivers shutout in Game 4 win

If the true measure of a team is how they bounce back from a bad game, I think my boys just showed the world that they are a force to be reckoned with. Game 3 was so hideous. Poor umpiring, poor defense, poor pitching. But none of that returned tonight.... Continue reading "Dutch delivers shutout in Game 4 win" »

Cardinals Outslug Rangers 16-7 in Power Show

The game temperature in Arlington was easily 30 degrees warmer than either of the games in St. Louis. Naturally, this lead to big offensive outbursts from both teams. Unfortunately for me, the Cardinals bats (especially that of Albert Pujols) seemed to enjoy the nicer weather a bit more than the... Continue reading "Cardinals Outslug Rangers 16-7 in Power Show" »

Texas BBA Chapter Casts Ballot for Stan Musial Award

Last, but definitely not least, in the postseason awards is the Stan Musial, which recognizes the top player in each league. BBA allows us to have 10 players on the ballot for this, and much like the pitching award, it doesn't feel like enough spaces. But it's supposed to be...

Lewis Muffles Cardinals' Bats, Rangers Rally in 9th to Knot World Series at 1

Raise your hand if you expected a pitcher's duel between Colby Lewis and Jaime Garcia. I doubt there are many hands up. Mine certainly isn't. I hoped and prayed the Colby Lewis from 2010 Postseason would show up, but he exceeded my expectations tonight. He was one out shy of...

Wasted Opportunities Cost Rangers in Game 1 of World Series

The Texas Rangers missed scoring chances early, and the St. Louis Cardinals got a pretty big break in the 9th. That pretty much sums up Game 1 of the World Series. C.J. Wilson said in pre-game comments that starting pitching was going to be the difference in this series. He...
