i think id rather have adams as the closer and ogando as the setup guy
I'm willing to see for little longer before demoting Nathan, but one more outing like last night would do it.
fo realzzz! at least it seems like a lot of closers are struggling so far this year, so he isnt alone. hopefully he can turn it around, because we really need him!
They will get this worked out..
Yeah this isn't a big shock. We all knew about this guy when he was signed. No way he finishes this season as the closer. He may not finish this month.
Yet another great pitching outing by a Ranger starter.
Holland took them into the 8th with a 5-2 lead.
We'll see if the bullpen can finish it off this time.
It's a long season fellas, wait to pull your hair out until the World Series
And you have to love Michael Young.
One blown save 4 games into the season and we're already talking about demoting people? Jeez a after couple of world series berths we sure are setting the bar high
It's a little early to bury Nathan. The guy is a proven closer and his pitches have good movement. (yeah, even now) It's his placement that is blowing ***. The fat part of the plate isn't where you want your breaking pitches or fastballs to end up.
I'm okay with giving him some time. Ron makes some split second bonehead decisions, but he doesn't make long term ones. If Nathan continues to screw up, Ron will yank him from the closer spot.
The only time you have to worry about Ron is in the playoffs in a game where the series in on the line. ie, when the Rangers can be eliminated by losing that game. That is when you really have to worry about his decisions making. Other than that, baseball is a long season and everyone makes mistakes. You can recover from those. Ron is a great manager overall. (he has been to the WS the last two years)
2! 2 blown saves. I could deal with 1, but 2!
Nope just 1. He came into the 9th in a tie game. 2 losses though.
1 and 1/2!
Which is worse.
Like you daid, the season is VERY young.
Rangers are 5-2
I'll take that after 7 games all day.
Harrison is owning. 1 run over 14 innings I believe. Ogando produced a crazy outing in the 9th though.
No Nathan = another victory :bow:
Looks like Harrison is ready to take the next step this season.
Starting pitching has been insane
The team this organization has built is astounding. I sure hope they can eventually get a title. Management has done a great job.
there showing why they let Wilson go(besides the contact he got)
They really are a model franchise in all of sports right now.
