Glad to know this was the ranger's off season accusations. If I fall asleep before Dyson blows it, it might not hurt as bad.

Got nothing in the bullpen. If the starter isn't on his game and going long, gonna see more of this. Sucks, but it is what it is.

Nitkowski sounds about as well as he pitched during his MLB career. It was rough listening every time I switched over to watch.

Yeah, really liked Buzz, who had great credibility and a host of experience as a longtime pitcher who could also do great play-by-play with an amiable personality and Grieve has so much history with Texas. Really had two analysts. Raymond is at least familiar as Eric Nadal's radio reliever for a few innings most games. Nitkowski is the low-key unknown to the scene.

Broadcast gave me flashbacks to 5 or 6 years ago when TAG and John Rhadigan teamed up for about the first 50 games. That might of been the worst broadcast team of all time.

Hammels is the day 3 started so they can give him extra time off with the Rangers having several early days off and it benefits the number 3 starter. They are trying to give him extra time off knowing how many innings he has thrown over the last few years in hopes that he will be strong when playoff time gets here.

Makes sense. When he wasnt the opening day starter, I just assumed he would start game 2.

15 innings into the season....better than grieve.

I miss Buzz, but I like the more in depth stats being used.

It's not like we are playing the Astros or anything. I mean it's the team that took the Cubs to game 7 and are picked to win it all this year. It's a long season. They'll make it up against the Astros.

Our "closer" with back to back walks in the 9th.....just like last year. If this is so obvious to everyone on the planet, why is it so hard for one of the greatest young minds in baseball (JD) to see?

Dyson is NOT a closer, he has NEVER beeen a closer, he has NEVER had closer stuff.....


And with that, he gives up a granny...

So he has an era of 72 now. Maybe somebody in the organization could make the obvios decision of yanking his worthless butt now. He has given up 8 runs over 2 games to get 3 outs.
