Texas Rangers have the best record in baseball. Are we getting spoiled?
Red Sox are a mediocre baseball team. Without Elsbury and Bailey the are just plain bad.

But Fenway did turn 100 years old! A classic ball park.

I wish the owner of my team would spend half of what Texas does. We were a proud franchise just less than a decade ago.

The Washington Nationals are for real. Steven Strasbourg shutting out the Marlins in the 6th. This is good for baseball.

It should be no surprise that I am skeptical of the Rangers, given a long history of floundering. My gut is to say they will wilt in that long Texas summer heat.

But who knows?

I will continue to root for my beloved A's, but I wont begrudge you folks some time in the sun.

Nope.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day, you know!


Still very early. Let's give is a couple of months.

BTW if you browse the archives you will find a post or two from me congratulating the Rangers for their recent success. That said, my beloved A's have four World Series titles in the last 40 years, and maybe 7 WS appearances. The Rangers?
