So we're going to Spring Training in March, during Stephanie's Spring Break.

But before most of you get all excited...we're going the wrong direction. Yeah, we're going to Surprise, Arizona. Right. Texas Rangers Spring Training.

I'm doing this for Stephanie. Plus we've always wanted to go to Arizona anyway. We've never been there.

So here's the plan. We fly out on my birthday, March 13. We land in Phoenix (after a layover in El Paso), and drive to Surprise, where we will check into our hotel. We'll probably just look around some the rest of Friday, find where all the players are and stuff like that.

Saturday, it's back to Phoenix for a game against the hated White Sox at their home field. Then Sunday, we go to a game in Surprise against the Padres at the Rangers home field.

Monday morning, we pack up and head north, probably to a cabin somewhere in Munds Park. Tuesday, we will more than likely drive to Williams, where we will get on a train that will take us to the Grand Canyon, where we will take "motorcoach" tour of the area.

We have one more game back in Surprise on Thursday, with the A's before we fly back home on Friday.

Should be fun. I'm looking forward to seeing all of the beautiful landscape in Arizona.

This just in!!

It seems that Alex Rodriguez tested positive for 'roids in 2003. (He was with the Rangers, then, according to the report.)

Life is good!!!

Oh, yeah...and he won the AL MVP that year, as well as the home run category.


You can read the full report here.

I can't wait to hear the crowd at Fenway this season!!

Ok. That's it for now.

Hoo...let me catch my breath...

Thanks to Krystle for posting this on Facebook!

The Strike Out King Comes To Boston!!

Whoa! The Red Sox have signed Brad Wilkerson?????????


THEO!!! THEO!!!! *slap-slap-slap*

Theo. Listen to me. I realize I'm no "boy wonder" GM, but, please, listen! I live in Texas. I go to Rangers games.


Sure, he "belted" 20 home runs his last season here. But I noticed that the article on does not mention that he LED THE LEAGUE IN STRIKEOUTS!!!!

I watched him strike out 5 times in one game. (That might be a slight exaggeration. But it was a lot.)


Might as well put him at shortstop. He's at least as inept as Lugo.


Meanwhile...the Rangers continue their march toward mediocrity.

And Manny, the fastest bat in the west, remains homeless.

TTFN, y'all.

Whoa. Been a long time.

I guess I didn't have much to write about. Hmmm...still don't.

I'm glad to see that Tek made up his mind. It will be nice to see him still in a Sox uniform this season. I hope they can fix whatever was wrong with his bat, though.

Elsewhere, I see that the Texas Rangers did absolutely NOTHING to improve their team during this off season. I guess Jon Daniels and Tom Hicks are happy with a less than mediocre second place in the American League Worst. I mean West.

I figure they'll trade Josh Hamilton before the season is over. If'n they do that, I'm burning all of my Rangers stuff. Just in case anyone wonders, though, I have more than twice as much Red Sox stuff as I do Rangers stuff. I got my priorities straight, doncha know?

I don't feel like writing much else right now...I'll try to keep this more up to date.

TTFN, y'all
