Wooo!!

(Side note: I dont understand why he's been moved down in the order. Batting 7th today. And Andruw Jones. Yes. Andruw... Jones... is batting cleanup. For Texas. Really? I know hes had a couple good at bats, and maybe I can see him there for Seattle/SanFran/Wash etc... but TEXAS? </rant>)

I also have Braun, Soriano, and Rios...there isn't much room.


Sound like a good trade position...

Cruz came incredibly close to 3 homeruns 10 rbi tonight.

Hit one a couple feet from the wall to dead center, and double high off the wall with the bases loaded.

Oh well, 1 hr and 6 rbi will do.

Would have been two grand slams in one game.

I know nobody can hit three home runs in a game, but has anyone done two grand slams in an outing?

I like Texas' offense as much as the next guy but lets not go overboard here. Cleveland and Baltimore both have terrible rotations and Detroit which only has a mediocre rotation pretty much stymied their offense. This is a good offensive team getting fat stats off of bad pitching so far.

I don't think anyone is suggesting they're going to put up double digit runs every game, but we can certainly enjoy it when they do well...and we have lots of Rangers on our team(s). ;-D

So now he his on the verge of becoming a demigod? I won't buy into the hype until I see it. This will be one kid I'll watch do something for a different manager.


.275 avg, 23 homers and 80 rbi tops. If he gets 550 abs.



Are we ready to change our tune yet?

Good? The Texas Rangers have the best offense in the league. Period.

The only question is how many records they are going to break this year! :-)

How do you measure the best offense?

If you measure it by RISP, it was the Twins last year, with one of the lowest HR totals.
