Back to the top!

After watching the opening series, this team may set the all time strike out record. Averaging 10k's per game will not win many games. I said they will struggle to win 75 before the season started. Now I don't know if the can even get close to that prediction. The bullpen will be shot come the All Star Break.

I'll be interested to see how attendance and viewership holds if the losses really start to pile up early. I wonder how many fans are in the same boat as my wife - she is not used to this. She didn't get on board as a Rangers fan until the run to the 2010 World Series. Since then she has been a semi-fanatical follower of the Rangers. We watch or listen to at least part of all 162 every year and have been to Spring training a couple of times. I am trying to prepare her for a multi-year stretch of bad baseball and no post season appearances. (I've been a fan since I moved here in 1984 so I know what that's like)

Glad the first series is over. It was tough, the Astros line up is loaded with RH bats. I thought the starting rotation did better that expected. The defense was sloppy at times and it cost em. Especially Matt Moore. Fister looked solid and so did Minor. Defense has to be better to give these guys a chance. But bottom line is Elvis and Beltre cant carry this club. Other guys are going to have to step up. 7-8-9 holes went 2-38 I believe. That's unreal bad.

I hate West Coast games but lets go Big Sexy

I hope i'm wrong, but i think these questions will begin to be answered by June. I just don't see how the pitching can win games. I don't see enough hitting to just out score teams. I do see enough boneheadedness and goofiness to lose games. I think the Rangers lose contact w/ division leaders early. We shall see...

For long-time Rangers fans, the few years there where they had some runs into the playoffs were the weird years.

I'm hoping for a return to that weirdness soon, rather than a long spell of "normal" again. I fully expect 2018 to be a very normal year. Hopefully I'm wrong. But, if not, let's hope some changes are made that will make 2019 a weird year.

If you're watching this Ranger game you just saw 2 of the best defensive plays you'll see all year.

Those are the kinds of plays that I LOVE about this game.

I assume you are referring to the throw by Robinson to punch out Lucroy at home? That was a heck of a play for sure.
I couldnít hang for the whole game and turned in early. Our bats suck but Big Sexy sure did his job with 6 full innings and only 1 earned run.

Canít win with no run support. Seems like last season when the starting pitchers were on, the bats sucked.

True. Which tells us all we need to know. Big Sexy did his job last night. Too bad he didn't have any help.

I really want to know who is responsible for coaching the outfield defense. There was a near catastrophe last night when Ryan Rua didn't take charge of a foul ball. Nearly had a three man wipe out involving Rua, Beltre', and Andrus. I've said it for awhile now, it's a question of time before there is a serious injury in the outfield because none of the outfielders ever control the outfield. What a mess.

Yea I canít wait until Mazara takes out Odor. Last good thing that guy did was punch Batista. Iím tired of watching him. This team sucks and who do we have to look to in the future? Gallo, maybe Mazara? This thing could be bad for a few years.

The Rangers have more people in the bullpen than the A’s have in the whole $&&% hole stadium......... but section 36, row 4 has more pitching talent I would guess (and I have no idea who is sitting there)

Haha, I am watching still. Only have ever been a Rangers fan. I am just afraid we are in a horrible place. I am in the minority but all the good JD has done I think he has done more bad leading to where we are now.

Hamels did look pretty good last night. At least the bottom of the line-up had a few hits, RBI's, and cut down on the K's. I went to sleep after the 5th and expected to see the update on my phone this morning that they blew it. Pleasantly surprised the bullpen held on for the win.

ready to win some easy money betting my Dallas friends how bad/good the Rangers will be this year

Their Offense could do well IF everyone plays to their ability. I just see too many K's with Gallo, Odor, and some of those AAAA guys like Rua.

Their pitching will be a huge problem IMO

Evan Grant just wrote an article about how Hamels - like most pitchers as they age - has worked hard to reinvent himself since last year. He used to throw mostly four-seamers, cutters and curves. Last night he struck out 11 without throwing hardly any of those pitches - it was mostly sliders, two-seamers and change-ups. I really like to watch him throw.
