Actually even with our great farm system, the rangers are in more danger of going down in the next few years then people realize. Naps, Hamilton, Adams, Feldman and torrealba are all free agents after this year assuming we don't pick up feldmans 9.5 mil option and Cruz and young are fas the year after(I'm sure there are others). We have one of the best position prospects in baseball in profar and another good one in olt but both have a ton of value in their d at important positions and we have better defenders at both positions in the big leagues. Also I still find it hard to believe well move kinsler to lf since he's so good at 2b defensively

You didn't read what I said I have a problem with. You don't have to watch every game to be a real fan. I have problems with people who used to hate the Rangers and crap on them and make jokes at how bad they were....and now those same people claim to be life-long true Rangers fans. Which is a joke.

When the Rangers are winning, I can't get on facebook b/c my feed is filled with "I <3 my Rangers." etc. 3 years ago, no one gave a shit about them.

You don't just lose your "bandwagon" fan status by sticking with the team a few years after becoming a fan. But if anytime between July-ish and November of 2010 someone said to themselves "I think I'm going to become a Rangers fan" because of how good their season was going, then that's the very definition of a bandwagon fan. Now if those same people are claiming to still be fans 10-20 years from now after the Rangers have had some down years then we can stop calling them bandwagon fans. I might would give them some slack if Texas had gone something like 70-92 and missed the playoffs, but not after they made the World Series again.

In spirit of the 100 year anniversary, on top of the really old school throwbacks, they should have not allowed the players to wear batting gloves, sunglasses, elbow protectors, shin protectors, and any other form of equipment aide not available 100 years ago.

Of course. And to take it one step further, the only time a new baseball should be used is after a home run or a foul ball that goes into the stands, as they did 100 years ago. Oh, and no batting helmets.

Lol. I noticed that about the probability too.

And it's all good man. I didn't even realize that I said pitches instead of strikes.

You should seriously not focus much on that any more though...every single team IN ALL OF SPORTS that starts winning will produce bandwagon fans.

fair weather fans exist in every city, for every team...it's just the nature of the beast.


I think it is great that the Rangers are finally getting attention...it is the kind of attention that can only be aquired from winning games.

Alex Presley just hit a lead off inside the park homer for the Pirates. That pretty much the only way for our team to hit a homerun.
