Pudge joins the Ranger 

Post#1 » by TMU » Tue Aug 18, 2009 11:28 pm

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Ivan Rodriguez is coming home to the Texas Rangers.

The 14-time All-Star catcher who started his career with the Rangers at age 19 was acquired in a trade Tuesday with the Houston Astros for minor league pitcher Matt Nevarez and two players to be named later.

Does this mean more Towellie action?

Good riddance, even if it means Towles gets some action now(he's horrible too).

Now they should trade Tejada and Valverde, probably Hawkins too. Might want to send Norris back to AAA and tell him to learn more than 2 pitches too. Maybe next season we'll be good enough to compete for last place again!

We watched the tragedy unfold. We did as we were told, we bought and sold. It was the greatest show on Earth...but then it was over.

Return to Houston Astros
