Hamels gives up a Homer to Springer on the third pitch of the game.

RIP 2018 Rangers

You’re a great man Otis, even for a Rangers fan.

I would feel bad for Hamels, but then I remember he didn’t want to come here and chose Texas instead, then I feel better.

Also, it’s World Series MVP Springer, good sir.

;)
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.

It's going to be a very rough year for the Fish, but at least there's a plan in place this time. Hopefully it pans out.

I'm content listening to a Hall of Fame broadcaster in the Rangers radio booth. It's really all I have.

Hamels isn't doing much to enhance his trade value...

I'm enjoying this Rangers debut for Moore.

Good news - done with the Astros... for now.
Bad news - gotta play them 15 more times.

He was a bargain.

Because he sucks, you see.

Not bad for a #4 starter I guess.

So is it safe to talk about my Cardinals on this thread?

It's even better for me. My favorite player in MLB is Christian Yelich. However, he plays for the Brewers. :banghead: I wanted him to follow Ozuna to the Red Birds. :curse:

Astros bats are in such a funk right now, but on the bright side I just tuned into the Toronto/Texas game to see Hamels give up a 3-run HR to go down 4-0 in the first inning.
