What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
They sustain me. Crying over the Ranger having a "lack of communication."
Oh Christopher John WIlson...the Rangers made you think you "were not that good", because they didn't want to keep you for what you thought you were worth.
The Rangers make sure and extend people they want around for the future. If you weren't extended, then there was a reason. You probably wanted too much money for the production you brought to the table.
His production in the playoffs perhaps? lol
In case anyone is interested and hasn't read the article in reference, here is the link.
You idiots need to get past CJ. It's like you luv him and can't forget him.
Are you sure it's not CJ who can't let go of the FO not even making him an offer? After all, he's the one that keeps talking to the media about it.
Rangers made the right move. They've had no trouble replacing CJ in the rotation with the emergence of Harrison and signing Darvish. It would be nice if Holland could make it all click and Colby was healthy but letting CJ go was a great move by John Daniels.
CJ Wilson always looks, flustered to me, I'm glad he's gone, when he was let go, all I could think was, even I could see how feeble his attempts are, and lettingHim go was good for the team. He's butt hurt...
CJ was a decent pitcher here but you need guys who do not disappear in the playoffs -- where he was TERRIBLE! I remember Jamey did a piece about Cliff Lee and CJ and how each of them thought he was good. Cliff was right; CJ was wrong.
You know, CJ's a little douche but, Hamilton, Napoli, Young, all of them were basically put on the back burner and allowed to go without much of a fight. While I support the reasoning, there may be some truth to the Rangers being a bit cold when it comes to how they communicate.
That being said, it's a business.
I think J.D. knew that Hamilton was not going to return unless we made a ridiculous offer and we were not going to do that. Hamilton proved his loyalty by not even giving us that chance. He was ready to get to the glamour and the West Coast love. He wanted to leave and J.D. knew it. IMOHO.
Rangers wanted Yu more than CJ, esp. at the price CJ's market went to. MY is being paid to play elsewhere next year. Napoli is a gamer, but he is injured and not worth a 3 year deal. The Rangers offered him 1 @ 13M. Hamilton, as good as he was the time he was here, lost focus midway thru the season last year and never recovered. First the dipping issue (who quits tobacco in the middle of the season and not the off season?), then the caffeine and energy drink mess where he couldn't see or focus correctly? Who can forget the absolutely horrible at bats the last month of the season and the smile on his face when he walked back to the dugout. The misplayed fly ball? The 2 infidelity issues? Do the Ranger's reward this with 6 yrs/25M?
I don't care what CJ moans about. If the Rangers want YU, they will get YU.
Napoli, Wilson, and Hamilton all thought they were the sole reason the Rangers went to the WS 2 of the last 3 seasons. Hamilton, Napoli, and Young having poor seasons or collapsing at the end of the season is a major reason they did not go back the 3rd year. Young just got old and Wash refused to use him properly thus he hurt the team. Wilson is a head case. Hamilton is an addict. Napoli had 1/2 of 1 good season total.
I wish the Rangers would just play the shower scene from "American History X" on loop when CJ is pitching in Arlington.
