I'm guessing since I get FSSW I'll be watching a lot of these guys this year. I'm not sure if that is a good thing but i can't wait until next Friday at Noon!
actually...it depends.I hardly get any Ranger games at all because Fox Sports plays a majority of the Astros games and the MLB Extra Innings package blacks out Ranger games that Fox plays.
But you are in Houston, right?I'm in Austin and tend to get mostly astros and a whole lot of the Rangers. I assume San Antonio wil be similar.

With Young playing 3b and Andrus getting the starts at SS what are your guys thoughts on him. He could be a good cheap source of steals but will he hurt you everywhere else. I think he is worth a flyer if you have MI slot.

Andrus is waiver material in nearly any mixed format. He's being brought in for his glove which is strange because EY won a gold glove somehow last year, but anyone that actually watches this team knows what a butcher Young is at short. I would not expect production of any kind to justify a start versus almost any team. Also will be super low in the order.

Even a 14 team mixed league with a MI slot. If he can steal 25 bases and hit above .270 he has value. Of course hitting .270 is the big question as he has hasn't played above AA until now.

And if he can swing well enough to bat at the top of the order, 35 SBs and 100 Rs are possible. I ahve him in the top half of available SSs.

14 with MI and yeah he's got to be on somebody's roster. The risk is too high for a guy that is under tremendous pressure.

If I was from Texas I'd challenge you to a duel sir! Thems fightin' words!
 
Little Cat has been released. Looks like Andruw Jones is making the team. Still going to be one spot that needs to open up on the 40 man roster. I could see Travis Metcalf as the last man to be cut.

Kris Benson also is making the staff and into the rotation. Looks like we will be getting Anna Benson sightings around Arlington. I can hardly wait.

 
I just completed my draft.

I have Kinsler.

(The dude right before me snatched Hamilton).

I have Chris Davis,

I have Nelson Cruz.

So, although I am not homer, I need the Rangers to do well this season.

I think they got divorced.

ZOMG!!!!! :wub: :) :lmao:
 
Yahoo fantasy is indicating Chris Davis will not start (x by his name). ButIcan find no news anywhere....

 
GB Opening Day.

There are a ton of stories to follow on this team this year, but one of the ones that I am very interested in is Millwood's quest for 180. 180 innings = 12 million bucks next year. I look for zero "nagging injuries" this season, and there will be more than one occasion where he is still out there when you think he shouldn't be.

Can't find anything about Davis, listening to pre-game right now.

 
Millwood: The Quest for 180

Kevin Millwood's valient effort to accumulate 180 total innings and win the prize of a $12m contract next year.

Progress:

Number of Starts: 1

Number of Total Innings: 7

Average Innings per Start: 7

Number of Innings Left: 173

Number of Possible Starts Remaining*: 33

Average Number of Innings Needed per Remaining Starts: 5.24

*Based on 34 starts per Year - his average as a Ranger

SWEEP #####es!!!!

Not a pretty win, never is giving up 8 runs, but the wind was really blowing out today, so there were going to be some long balls. 7 total homers.

Sweep feels AMAZING!!

There's not a single pitcher that's doing a damn thing. Millwood is a mirage. He is pitching behind in counts 70% of at bats. He'll implode shortly.

What's really bad is as soon as the fans get wind of the same old same old there will be 4-digit weeknight crowds out there even though they'll announce 15-18k no matter what. And the payroll will keep dropping.

I'm not going to invest a bunch of time in this thing if something doesn't change soon.

 
I'm not saying one has anything to do with the other, but the Rangers bat N. Cruz 4th and all the guy does is smack 3 HRs and hit over .300 and the Rangers go 3-0. Then for whatever reason they move hom down to 5th and he stops hitting and they go 0-3. I checked tonight and see that Cruz is now bating 6th. Huh?

Not to mention they should wear the RED every game.
