    No doubt as they talked in pre game, Astro talent or potential talent is in the minor leagues right now. Astros have put the focus on building the minor league system. It had to be done, for now any win for the big league team is icing on the cake.

    Profar at 2B or Andrus at 2B? I don't see Kinsler staying a Ranger, which is a shame because I like him.

    Profar at 2B. He has more power which you usually see at 2B plus Elvis is on his way to a gold glove at SS. Might as well let him keep his spot. I can see Kinsler moving to 1B or Outfield. More likely outfield. Olt will probably take over 1B or he will be traded. I wouldn't mind seeing Ian move to the outfield if Cruz gets suspended.

    Profar could play another full year in the minors and we make the moves next season.

    Now that Elvis is locked up, who would be in favor of trading Profar to the Marlins for Giancarlo Stanton? I know this was one of the rumored possible trades.

    Your getting a 23 year old monster hitter who is locked up until 2017. He has also proved he can kill it at the MLB level.

    Not going to lie, I couldn't be too upset if we landed this guy.

    Here is a good read for fellow Ranger fans on our current situation that got me thinking about Stanton...

    I would 100% be in favor of Stanton for Profar.

    I just turned the game on and saw the top of the 8th.

    Boy, I hope that isn't a blister on his hand.

    Darvish was filthy tonight. Probably the best pitched game I have seen.

    Oh well, first place for a day will have to do! Hah!!! Tip of the cap to Yu Darvish. Even though an Astro's fan, I wish he would have done it. My dad and son live in Dallas, and are staunch Rangers fans.

    Geez Ogando throws gas. Love him in the rotation vs. bullpen.

    He does. I still put him on my list of questions on this team, but if he pans out as a starter I will be very happy.
