    How bout them Rangers?!

    Great start! Hope we can finish just a strong, and win it all this time.
    Ryan and Daniels have done a great job building this team.
    Wash has takin them farther than anyone else, and he's done it twice.
    Still early.
    Go Rangers!!! Go Astros!

    I shall always be a Cubs fan. It doesn't matter if they win. It doesn't matter how badly they lose.

    Texan: "Your Cubs suck!"
    Me: "Yup."
    Texan: "But, your Cubs suck!"
    Me: "Yup."
    Texan: "But, your Cubs suck!"
    Me: "Listen, I've got to go watch the Cubs lose another game, can we take this up some other time?"

    Born and raised a Tigers fan.

    Glad to have the Rangers doing well. Hope the Tigers can beat them tonight though.

    Rangers got the better of those Tigers this round. Verlander is an awesome pitcher.

    I believe the Ranger's Yu Darvish is gonna be the real deal.
    Hope he stays healthy.

    Since y'all know a lot more about baseball than I do, I'm going to my first Astros game may 4th at minute maid park. I haven't been to a game since the astrodome was still open and saw Nolan Ryan play.

    Any recommendations on what to eat while there? Or advice in general?

    Well, hope you enjoyed the game.

    Haven't been to an Astro game since I was a kid. Saw them play the Giants, saw Mays and McCovey.

    Still hoping to make a game at Minute Maid Park.

    My Rangers have hit a bump in the road. Better right the ship befor the Angels get on track.

    It's early but: I'm saying it'll be between my Rangers and the Yanks for the American League Pennant.

    Braves or Dodgers will take the National League.

    I have to agree with you there. I am a long time Yankees fan, but it has been nice the last couple of years that even though my Yanks didn't make it to the big dance the Rangers did. I will cheer them on as long as they aren't playing the Yankees.

    My Rangers have backed into the playoffs! Really stunk it up the last month. Even so I'll stay with them and look for them in the ACLS.
    If , and I mean if they fall early, I'll be pulling for the Orioles in the American and the Cardinals in the National.

    Baseball, just a good game with overpaid players. But a good game just the same.

    Well, so much for the Rangers. I hated to see them go. I was actually hoping for a rematch against the Yankees. I guess it wasn't meant to be. I think the Reds will take the NL. I like them as a darkhorse.

    Opening day just around the corner!

    My Rangers and Astros are now in the same league and the same division.
    Dashes the hopes of an all Texas World Series but give us double opportunity to beat the A's and the a n g e l s.

    Baseball!

    Astros going nowhere. Not after signing Carlos Pena. Worst thing the Rays did was resign him and the best, getting rid of him (again).
    Struck out 35% last year, God only knows how many he left in scoring position, can't hit a sac fly and his defense was so so.
    Making a million$ this year... vastly over paid.
    Rangers....class act. Play offs they kill my Rays.

    We may beat the Rays but I'm never comfortable playing them.

    Pena: 1 for 4 w/3k's pretty much his norm although the BA is about
    55 pts too high.

    Darvish has great stuff tonight.

    sure like the Astros payroll. Still say they all make too much for playin ball but it is what it is.
