Yeah, Soria basically got us Gallardo and a big piece of Hamels.

Saw this, with the $9.5 million the Phillies are chipping in, and the offset of off-loading Harrison at $13 MM a year, the Rangers are getting Hamels for roughly $9.7 MM a year for three years. Not too shabby.

My guess is that the reason we didn't see Harry/Thompson in the deal til late is because they weren't in the original framework. They were talking cash coming back, and this was the compromise. The Rangers bought down the dollar cost by including Thompson.

We gave up Thompson for the luxury of paying Hamels #4 pitcher money.

Creative deal.

Your odd off day Rangers stat courtesy of another message board:

If only games against winning teams counted, the Rangers would have the second best record in baseball behind the Cardinals and be on pace for 94 wins. Even stranger is that the Rangers run differential is -3 against these teams.

If only games against losing teams counted, the Rangers would have the second worst record in baseball ahead of the Marlins and be on pace for 69 wins.

A chart that shows how much better (or worse in the case of the Rangers and Blue Jays) are against teams with losing records:

Really odd trend. And it is hard to call 110 games a small sample size.

Ok. Seattle bullpen should be worn down after that Boston series. Let's be in the wild card after MLB closes the books on Wednesday.

It would be nice to see Hamels get it together tonight.

I think they go over. I don't think they were as bad as they showed last season, so if I go off that, and then a couple of bounce back years from a couple of guys, I think they can get there.

Well....this right here is pretty much what Selig dreamed of when he blackmailed Jim Crane into moving to the AL.......tight race in September with I believe 7 games remaining between the two....we'll see how FRENZIED this "rivalry" gets????

Love watching the games since the All-Star break.

Really confused by Jamie's question marks on that last post.
why don't you run back to the sandbox where the rest of the kids are playing so the adults can have a discussion...it's over there....you see Howie, he's over there with PMS knocking over other kids sandcastles...looks like fun.

They're there because there is no rivalry and doubt there will be ever be one, but hopefully I'm wrong about that.....have to get something out of this miserable move to the AL.

Are we still not past the sell by date for whining about the move to the AL? If I was MLB commissioner, I'd have Tampa move to Portland or Las Vegas, move Milwaukee to their slot in the AL East and dump the Astros back in the NL Central just to stop the crying.

I do not in any way believe that you guys would have no problem with getting moved, so the "crying" comment is fucking stupid.

I would be delighted if MLB dropped the Rangers somewhere involving fewer games starting at 9 PM CST.

John Blake ‏@RangerBlake 36s36 seconds ago<br />Monday vs. HOU: DeShields 8, Choo 9, Beltre 5, Fielder DH, Napoli 3, Moreland 3, Andrus 6, Odor 4, Gimenez 2, Hamels 1


Either John Blake is confused about where Nap is playing tonight or Bannister is going with a pretty unorthodox lineup.
