What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
If you have been here long enough, you know "S" and what I wrote as far back as July of last year. I called it. The team quitting on Wash. The choke. The collapse.
I was mocked and laughed at. The "sky is falling" comments made me laugh, because, as I said then, the "sky is going to fall on your big empty heads".
And, it did.
Metrics? Proven to be fake.
WAR and WHIP are as legitimate as who wipes their ass the best. But, because ESPN and others are behind them, they will be shoved down our throats.
I even went out on a limb, so far as to say that the last place team in the AL West this year would be from Texas, but NOT from Houston.
As of now, EVEN THAT is true.
Yet, I NEVER took any joy in watching my team choke. Just amazement at how it was allowed to happen.
Wash must go. No excuse for that collapse.
And, if Nolan goes....Watch the fan-base give a big "F you" to sitting in 105 degree heat.
3.5 million? Try 2+.
As for this site and the self-proclaimed experts.
Take up another interest. Nobody cares about what you think about baseball.
Maybe the are QITTERS like Joey.
When you sign your post with an'S' I assume that means "STUPID"
w/out josh and michael, we are like the kid who is riding his bike for the first time w/ the training wheels removed . we crashed. will we not panic and learn to ride on our own? hopefully, but my money is not on it. and that it just the offense. the pen is a mess for several more wks.
Woah the confirmation bias is insane here. I'd have thought the mounds of evidence that the players were tired from playing record-breaking numbers of games might have had something to do with the collapse but I see that you, Mr. Armchair fan, have the inside edge?
Can you tell me what you think the Rangers will do with Borbon? I ask because as an insider you are privy to the inner-workings of the front office and can give me a little info.
The irony is strong with this one. We're approximately 0.001% into the season and apparently the team has quit already. See you guys next year, I guess?
On behalf of BBTiA lurkers everywhere, glad you're still going, Joey. Wouldn't be the same without ya. :)
Metrics have been proven fake? Nobody cares about the opinion of the site yet we are supposed to care about your uninformed opinion?
Ummmm, as written, talked about and evidenced, the Astros are the most comprehensive experiment with Sabremetrics ever attempted. They just won with a field full of milkmaids. Wipe your ass with THAT, Einstein.
YES--it's pretty obvious that this team quit last year and isn't interested this year.
And with Nolan gone--Wash is headed out of here by mid season.With no MY the clubhouse is in chaos.
Cruz will soon have to serve that 50 game suspension and we will be 80 hr's short of last years team.Club's insistence of winning on the cheap will have predictable results.Aceathon---Borbon--who cares--trade him for a large 3-topping pizza--offer good through Thursday!
And you Joey---Fool me once..........Im outta here---just like the pitiful second best team in Texas...
Apocalyptic trolls are out in full force, trying to rile up the Ranger faithful. Game one over, excited to see Yu on the mound Tuesday.
S, seriously? Of the 3 million fans who came to the ballpark last year, how many do you actually think came to watch Nolan sit in the owner's box?
If the team stinks, fans won't come. If the team is good, fans will come. It's that simple. It's pretty much that simple for every pro sports team in Dallas.
The OP is laughable except for the Wash should be fired part.
Still don't like wash. dumb as hell to bring lowe into that situation. Also to let him pitch to a lefty is the kind of counterintitive stuff he s known for. No MY to protect him this year. he is toast.
Hahaha--i was just playing!
How often do Overreaction Monday & April Fools Day fall on the same day and a season opening loss!!Its enough to bring out the apocalyptic troll in me.
Old school bro needs someone to handle the bullpen for him!
But there is great joy in Rangerland today!!!!! Elvis is getting better every day and now he has committed to us for life!!!
With the Elvis situation wrapped up---we can trade Jurickson Profar to Tampa Bay--for David Price!WE have an all star ss and now we can get an ace!!!!
Guys, the Rangers are 0-1. That means WAR is worthless.
I want Price but having Profar, Andrus and Beltre on your infield for years to come sure would save alot of runs. Kinsler is not going to bounce back he's been in this rut way to long.
It's ALL over. The Rangers are doomed for ALL eternity... duh.
By the way, NEVER believe a person who speaks in absolutes. Wait, what?
Heh... Cruz suspended 50 games? On manufactured evidence used by a charlatan to drum up investors?
If he goes, Braun goes and the Commish WILL NOT allow his best player to be suspended.
And, for those of you who are so wrapped up in MY, if a team cannot win without him, how'd the Giants win 2 of the last 3 World Series? How'd St. Louis beat him in the other? PADMY's gone. Good for Philly. Great for us.
Terry C: Nice. Fool! lol
But, we have an ace. We have two; although, one of them bit his wanker Sunday night - he's still one of the better pitchers in the game. I don't think Jurickson is going anywhere because I don't think TB will let go of Price and Miami has to keep Stanton or risk MLB yanking their stinkin' franchise - Selig and his cronies already look pretty bad to the Miami populace for gauging them out of a shiny new ballpark with no stars to decorate it with.
Wait, let me get this straight. Are you saying I told you so to things you said in the off season after one game of the regular season? Come back in October
Draggle--you're the fool.
The commissioner would love to hang Ryan Braun. And he will.
Thats why Nellie Cruz won't skate. Not a good time to have your name in with Braun and A-fraud.
And i was being facetious about PADMY. That was addition by subtraction.
Terri C.: Are you saying Draggle and you are BOTH fools?
No. I'm almost as smart as you. Troll breath.
Troll Breath?? Is that all you got numb nuts?
