    Sorry guys for talking baseball, I am usually thru caring about the Tx. Rnagers when training camp starts - But this may be the year good things happen for the Rangers and Cowboys.

    Rangers look great right now and with a 7 game lead they should be a shoo in for post season (knock knock)

    Getting Cliff Lee to match with Wilson and Lewis should make us serious World Series contenders

    Can't wait for the Angels to go down again tonight....and again tomorrow.

    You won't believe this nonsense from an Angels fan site:

    Pathetic Rangers Offense Squeaks Past Angels
    The Texas Rangers are running out of gas and nobody is noticing. Their slumping offense held on to a 1st inning HR by Michael Young to avoid being shutout by Joe Saunders. The Angels lefty came into the game with an ERA over 11 in Texas and allowed that lone run in 7 innings pitched. It is not even August and the Rangers can barely lift the bats off their shoulders, scoring a meager four runs in the first two games of their four game set with the reigning American League West champion Angels. The Halos will have no trouble repeating with the wilting Texas team phoning in the final 40 percent of the season like they did tonight.

    Seems like the guy is just figuring on history repeating itself.

    I am loving this season! I have been a Rangers fan since about 1990, but really did not follow the team every day until right after the strike.

    They are inducting Tom Grieve into the Rangers Hall of fame tonight, I can honestly that man helped me really grow to love baseball. Pretty cool.

    Hopefully we can make it 8 games over the Angels tonight!

    Brutal schedule going forward.
    But with 3 starting pitchers in the top 20, I like our odds!

    Arias' bat isn't terrible. Maybe Cantu can play a little 2nd. I loved the rookie Moreland going 2-4.

    The quicker Feldman gets sent down the better.

    Injuries happen, I hope nothing major happens to anyone.

    I actually got drug to the last game against the Angels (I hate baseball), and had more fun than I thought I would. George Bush Jr. and Laura were there. They announced his presence and everyone cheered. I BOOED as loud as I could.

    Yep. I'm a big Ranger fan myself. These are fun times to be a Ranger fan. But our offense has slide a bit and it's honestly because we did not get any production the last 2-3 weeks or since the Cliff Lee trade and that centers around Chris Davis. He's a good defensive player. But when it comes to a bat, he is terrible. I think he is now under .200 for the season. Something needed to change.

    Yeah, I was excited to see Moreland go 2-4, but it's early. Once teams get a better look at him, it will get harder for him.

    As for Feldman, I don't think he can't be sent down. (3 years in the majors) Anyhow, I believe he is about to be relegated to the bullpen. He was suppose to start Saturday, but they've taken that away from him. I'm not sure he will see another start until he works out his issues.

    It bothers me how a team that declared bankruptcy can still mike high-profile trades. This is a business, after all. Life shouldn't just work like that.

    You sound like an apposing team fan that is scared of the Rangers. Did you even look at the trades they made. They cost minimal money on the Rangers part.

    Move along now.

    I think Feldman can be designated for assignment to the minors, and then he could make a choice to either accept it or become a free agent. It's a shame he isn't performing like last year, but I'm not sure he even has a significant role in our bullpen. With Harden coming back, and Holland getting healthy in the minors I'm nost sure how he fits.
