What's Going On In Texas??

Baseball season is three days old, now, and things are starting out rather strangely. I am, of course, disappointed that Boston has lost their first series to the dreaded Desperate Housewives, but right now, my attention is on my second-favorite team, the one in Texas.

Of course, we were elated that they won Opening Day, and won it very solidly. Then, they won their second game, with Nelson Cruz crushing two home runs, one going into the second deck beyond left field, over 400 ft. We're hoping that he doesn't do what he does every time he comes up from the minors. Usually, he hits like crazy for a couple of weeks, then goes to sleep. Elvis Androus also got his first major league homer in the second game (along with his first error, but, oh well). The Rangers have not won their first two games since 2000.

Then the unheard of happened. The Texas Rangers SWEPT their opening series!! The last time they did that, they won the American League West. Not trying to put the cart before the horse, but this team looks different this year.

As for the Red Sox, they are still going to be ok, I think. The season is very young, and things are just getting cranked up.

But it's baseball season, so all is well.

TTFN, y'all!

May I just say that after that little deal with the Rays, I am actually looking forward to the West Coast trip. I don't think that's ever happened before. =P Stupid Rays. And their even more stupid announcers.

Welcome back, Bickley! The Rangers are going to mash; if they can keep the pitching up they'll give the Halo's a run for their money this season.

And one week later, they're right back to where they were last season. Go figure.
