    Health is the key.

    Even while having our pitching staff banged up we still kept the lead with a surging Angels team. Granted we were playing some weaker teams, but still.

    I said if we got the all-star break with the division lead we would make the playoffs, I still believe that. But playoffs worry me, but this team seems to thrive in October (WS not withstanding).

    It should be fun to watch. Just keep hoping to stay healthy.

    Every time I see that replay of Cruz I think he is going to get it. Much like "The Catch" for the Cowboys. :banghead:

    I want another signing like when we got Cliff Lee at the deadline. Then i will feel like we are really ready to win it all. If you are rangers management dont you put all your chips in the middle and go get Greinke, Hamels, or Dempster?

    Yes they do... I've been following this team since 1973... a ring would be monumental...

    My champs list would then look like this:

    √ Dallas Cowboys
    √ Dallas Mavericks
    √ San Antonio Spurs
    √ Texas Rangers
    √ Boston Red Sox
    √ Dallas Stars
    √ Texas Longhorns
    √ Arkansas Razorbacks
    √ Lufkin Panthers
    :( SFA Lumberjacks

    I'm not sure this kid understands what pitching is all about. Great pitching makes people swing and miss. A great change up causes batters be in front of the ball.

    OMG... you can't MAKE this stuff up...

    Reddick exemplifies the "dumb jock" moniker with that statement...

    Wouldn't bet on the Jacks anytime soon :) Sam choked it all away last year, doubt they make it bake it back.

    Yeah... we made it in to the Finals once and lost...

    Sam DID blow it and I was happy to see that... :D The two ugliest uniforms to ever play for a NC...

    Sam may be back... they were stockpiled with Sophomores last year...

    I don't want to see Napoli in a rangers jersey ever again. Worst loss of the season. ****!

    Well, that was unfortunate. Last time I looked it was 4-1 in the 7th. At least the Angels are getting rocked.

    Angels lose. Now we start our 3 game series against them tomorrow. Holland is pitching against Weaver :mad:

    It could be worse. It could be Ryan Drese against Weaver.

    Yeah they did. The coach was just terrible that game, running the same play multiple times and then just passing when they knew exactly when they would pass its no wonder a young QB couldn't stick in there.

    You are right, they will have virtually the same team they had last year. I just think when you had a team like last years and have everything go your way during the season it will be tough luck to do it again. But who knows. They will also get to test themselves against Baylor and A&M.

    Agreed on the unis, both are just ugly. I'm just here for grad school so I'm no die hard. But it's been fun while I've been here. Both football and baseball did really well.

    Such a stupid name. I cant figure out if I despise them or the Eagles more.
