Ha, as a Rangers fan I'd love to agree. But over the past 4 days they have destroyed two of my pitchers (Nate Robertson and Jeremy Bonderman) and now I have Felix against them tonight in the same league. So I think I'll be nice to their offense....even if it is a joke.

He still seems to be hitting the ball really hard, just not getting it into the air. With almost as many doubles as all of last year, I expect the HR's to come very soon. It's not like hes a 50 HR guy anyway, he's more of a 30 HR player at this point; a mark he could still reach if he has an August similar to his April.
