Help me out here...I see that the Rangers are getting hammered with ridicule here. Why is this?

True, Hicks has the IQ of a piece of lettuce and failed to trade ARod to the Red Sox. In waiting to trade him they were unable to make moves and now have to get scraps off the dung heap.

Now, before the two recent additions,if you were to look at the offense can you name a Ranger not named ARod, Texiera, Blalock or Young? If you said Mench then you get a star. But then who do they got? Jordan and Dellucci will help this team.

The pitching moves must be coming. They have a top closer. And as for SPs...the dung heap is barren.

I think they are getting ridiculed for exactly what you said in the red highlights. Everyone here keeps saying that same line, yet what do they do? They sign more positional players. Once again their starting rotation is going to be comprised of scraps.

they are still trying to figure out why Roger won't throw for them .. I agree, what ever pitchers that are left ... who wants ..

I mean ya think Hicks and Boras could come to some sort of agreement on Millwood? Hell no. Scott is going to get him 12-14 mill in arbitration.

Who else is left ... ?

Here's a wild one for everyone. :-B

The Rangers have good hitting and zero pitching...........

The A's have good pitching and zero hitting (not including Chavez) .......

I know it wouldn't make a lot of sense, but............
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
