It's been a while since we've had one of these, so just thought I'd throw it out there since Bad Radio reminded me.

Or as the Aggy like to call him Sip Hicks

Dude should just sell both the Stars and Rangers which ironically are the two Dallas franchises I actually like.

When Dustin Pedroia says his prayers at night, he asks the Sweet Clean Lord Jesus Christ to make him as good as Ian Kinsler. Of course, not even God can close a talent gap that big. So he just gave Kinsler a hernia.

Attendance was down, but revenues were up. That's all that matters. Rangers Baseball: We turn a profit!

Cuban has already told the DMN he's not interested.

The early names I've heard are Nolan Ryan and David McDavid.

Speaking of Ryan (and keep in mind I don't/can't follow my beloved Rangers as closely as some of you do), is it just me or are our starting pitchers giving more meaningful innings in their outings since he's been involved with mgmt? Seems like pre-Ryan (and for years previously) quality innings was a real sore spot for our starters, with usually one work-horse exception each year.

The pitching turnaround has been a combination of many factors, a major one of which is the fact that Nolan has emphasized conditioning.

Well this....

In 2008 he won a $316 million judgement against Time Warner after a jury ruled the company breached contract.


.....doesn't suck.

Use your winnings in a lawsuit that you got by getting "screwed" out of owning the Hawks and Thrashers(some might call that good fortune) to buy a team closer to home......I'd say it all worked out for the best if he does buy the Rangers....who the fuck wants to own the Hawks or Thrashers anyway???

Isn't naming a professional sports team the "Thrashers" a little Idiocracy?
