First walk off of the year! LeClerc and Diek had good outings and I can’t believe Kela got out of the 9th unscathed after giving up the lead off 2 bagger.

Could have taken both in Seattle but splitting is never bad at this point.

Big Sexy was dealing today. 8+. Rangers have only had a starter go 7+ 6 times this year and he has 4 of them. He might end up being the most valuable trade piece.

"It's not just his baserunning," Beltre said. "It's everything. It's everything about this kid. He asks the right questions. He thinks through things ahead of time. He does the right thing. Everything you want in a young kid, he does it. He wants to stay up here and he's doing everything he can to make sure he does."

Rangers up 3-0 in first. Let's see how long it takes Matt Moore to give the three, plus some more, back.

Matt Moore just drilled some poor Sox batter in the hand. Hand looks broke. Now some Ranger is going to get filled in. Jeez.

Matt Moore must be dfa'd between innings. The guy has to be the worst pitcher in MLB. Double Jeez.

....well, maybe this Fulmer character from Chi-Town is worse than Moore.

But, Moore should still be dfa'd.

Jepsen DFA'd. Bush called back up. Now if JD will DFA Matt Moore and turn some AA outfielder into a pitcher real quick maybe the club can make some headway.

You could honestly draw random seat numbers and have them pitch. For a young Thrown together team in the field and at bat... itís no where near perfect but thereís some hope. But the pitching and whoever is responsible for that mess of &$&% is horrid

It's about time for a proclamation.

This team has been getting bad for a couple of years. As much as i want to like JD, and give him credit for the good times, i think this falls at his and ownerships feet. I'm going to go around the horn quickly.

Pitching staff: Complete abortion. Hamels is still decent. But on a pennant contending team i think he'd be a No. 3 starter at this point. Kela may or may not have something. Same for Matt Bush. Big Bart is an amusing side show. He may still have a few games left in his system. But my bet is the heat is about to kill him. I can't think of another pitcher that another club would give a sack of batting practice balls for.

Catcher: I love R. Chirinos. But, i think, he'd be the best back up catcher in the league on a contending team. But, a club could do worse. Back up catcher is a black hole.

First Base: I like R. Guzman's future. I think the club should let play there the rest of the year and gain experience.

Second base: They give Odor a huge contract after one pretty good year. He has proven to this point to be a bad, and bull headed "hitter". He is a defensive liability. If i remember correctly, he was rated the worst player in MLB last year, maybe only bottom 3 players.

SS: Elvis should be back soon. He has become an offensive threat. He is, i think, an above average defender. I think he's still only 28, maybe 29. I would investigate what his trade value would be. I think he might bring a good young pitcher. For better or worse, i'm intrigued by Profar again. He seems to be getting there. This is one of the few, maybe the only, position of strength on the club.

3B: Beltre' is pretty much done @ 3rd. Gallo has said he doesn't want to play third any longer. I'd be fine w/ leaving IKF at third long term. I really like that kid. It may be a flash in the pan, but he's seems to be a ball player. The vets are taking him under their wings a la Mike Young. That's always a good sign.

RF: Mazara continues to improve. Another solid position.

CF: DeShield's is what he is. I think of him like Chirinos. If he's the 4th outfielder, you've probably got a decent team.

LF: I'd leave Gallo there and let him develop. I'm not as convinced at the stat geeks that strike outs aren't that bad. I think he needs to develop some threat to hit to the opposite side of the field. I guess we'll see what he turns into.

The Ryan Rua's of the Ranger world just need to go bye bye. It's a flawed roster on many fronts. I assume the GM gets the credit and the blame for most of that.

I'm hopeful about the field positions. The pitching staff, that's another deal altogether. The Rangers have not shown any ability to develop pitching. The few they did develop, they seem to have ruined. I guess we'll see...

A couple of follow up thoughts:

I left out DH: I think Choo is in the last year of his contract. Maybe a contender that needs a hitter will take him later in the summer. Otherwise a horrible free agent signing. I don't think Beltre' should even come back as a DH next year. His legs just aren't reliable enough. When / if he comes back this year, i assume he'll get most of the DH time. Again, we'll see...

Manager / coaches: We all take sides on #Leadership. I think Bannister is a good motivator. I t h i n k he is a good in game manager. I don't think he is good at developing players abilities. I'll say this for Ron Washington, he got the defense fixed. Defense has done nothing but get worse under Bannister. I still think one of these nights there's going to be a massive wreck in the outfield that will disable multiple players when it happens. The players ought to know better and be better. But, they don't seem to know better and they don't seem to be doing better. To me, that falls on the manager. I was a big fan of Steve Beuchele as a player. I have no idea what he does as a coach besides look cocky.

Oh well, that's out of my system. Maybe tonight will be better...

Yes... backloaded... and in the top 3 worst contracts in Rangersí history . Between him, Fielder and the other Korean Chan Ho Park.

Arod is in the neighborhood too but at least he produced.

Hamels has most of the Evil Empire Bashers mesmerized through 3. 27 pitches. Rangers up 5 - 1 in 3rd. Gave up a solo HR to rookie.

HR for The Condor. Rangers up 6 - 1. Nice. Hamels has thrown 43 pitches through 4. Channeling Cliff Lee in his prime.
