But it's okay to use the "F word" if you'd like...

f the management of the Texas Rangers

Two games in and the Rangers "ace" got rocked for 6 runs in the first three innings. It's going to be another long season for us Ranger fans.

I'm still trying to get over not seeing Pudge behind the plate. :mad: At least he picked off alot of the base runners their great pitching staff put on the bases.

Yeah. Chad Kreuter is certainly no Pudge, to say the least.

Shhhh...he's getting paid $13 million but can't handle the pressure of being called an "ace"...so let's not call him that.

And don't F Tom Hicks. He rules.

Mark Teixeira is going to be a great one but I'm sure we will witness that with him wearing another uniform because he will be traded for the likes of Kevin Appier.

The Chan Ho Park signing was horrible...

But in DFW a lot of people always extoll the greatness of Doug Melvin and I just don't get it. This is a guy that traded a 2 time MVP for Gabe Kapler (a fourth OF at best), Justin Thompson (who was injured and is still on the DL for the Rangers) and a cast of spares that has done nothing for the Rangers. Cattalanatto was a servicable player, but I want something more for Juan Gonzalez than a role player.

He wasn't able to convince top pitchers to come here, either, and we have NO pitching depth in the minor leagues to speak of. Colby Lewis and Joaquin Benoit are decent prospects, but it's not like we have the Astros or A's pitching in the minor leagues that Doug left us with.

I could go on.

Doug Melvin and his staff's ineffectiveness is as much to blame for this as John Hart and his staff.

And no, I'm not too happy with John Hart at the moment, either. Although I must say this off-season was much better than last year's.

I'm happy to see they got Ruben Sierra back though.

I don't like American League baseball. The DH stinks.

Wow. Park actually made it out of the third inning today. All Star Game here we come. :roll:
