You don't have to bring your best pitching when the other team gives up runs like the good house on the block giving up chocolate bars on Halloween.

What a joke. Gonna sit it out for a while and not watch. I feel like I am watching little league. I will follow the postgame alerts but not gonna waste time watching horrible baseball right now.

Reminds me of the Rangers from the early A-Rod era. Hoping they can turn this thing around.

Lot of knee jerk reactions going on in here. Yea it's frustrating watching them play like this, but it's early. 2010 they started 5-9, and I think that season turned out pretty well. Banny will get them going in the right direction.

Doing my daily reading at lunch, it sounds like Yu / Brocail / Banister all hugged and made up w/ each other. Yu consulted w/ well known Team Psychiatrist Rougned Odor and determined not to be so defensive. The World of Yu is once again spinning in greased grooves.

It's all good. Bring on the Royals.

Don't focus so much on those batting averages, E.R.A.'s, etc., etc. Good times.

7 out of the 9 in the lineup batting under 205. I know it is early but sure would like to see a couple of more guys realize the season has started.

Gallo, whatever he may turn out to be, is much better than he was last year. Kid may have a future yet. Hope he scores so i can hit the rack.

The official end of Josh Hamilton's career is upon us. He had another knee surgery and was released from the team.

Looks like we could be getting some rain/storms right around the start of the game.

Profar gets the start at SS and Elvis gets his first off day of the season.

Hope the bats show up tonight!

That ball went a loooong way. I'm impressed with Gallo so far this year. The average could be better but his AB's are 100x better than last year.

Agreed. Whatever he did in the offseason, he needs to keep up that process.
