I love that although he has been playing for other teams, he is going to come back to Arlington to retire as a Ranger. Pudge is the man and I can't wait for them to retire his number and hang it in the outfield! Wish I could be there Monday night when they honor him in the pre-game.
Yea I grew up in Grapevine so The Rangers are the only baseball team that I love. I think that it is awesome that pudge is going to retire in Texas. It's funny, him and I have a mutual friend and I have been to his house a few times. Pretty cool getting to touch all of those gold gloves with my bare hands! I know for a fact that he would t remember me though.

I'll bet that was just cool as hell to get to see. Good to have another Ranger supporter on here!

That is always a valid arguemnt, but Nolan was only here 4 years. Pudge was here the first 12 years of his career and won a ton of awards. There is no arguement about Nolan's contribution, but I would suggest that Nolan's contribution now, is bigger than then.

Braun didn't fail a test. He won his appeal, therefore he did not fail his test. So therefore I DO know about Braun (and Pujols, too, I suppose) until it is proven differently

I'm not going after Braun, I promise you that. I'm just defending Pujols. Braun did fail a test. A test with his name on it failed and he won an appeal questioning the handling of that test, but at this point it's just semantics. I just get sick of people pointing fingers at players who have never failed a test (throw Braun in there if you like) simply based on their domination of the game. I would honestly be shocked if Pujols juiced. I have no opinion on Braun since I'm not a Brewers fan but I was shocked that at the result of the test. Roids is just a $hitty excuse for why your rivals repeatedly beat your team (I do not mean you specifically). People need to just leave it be, there's testing and rules in place now.

OK I admit the Rangers may be the best team in baseball. I think Beating Scherzer was a given, I think the first three runs in the first game today were real, the rest was garbage luck. But taking Verlander to 115 pitches in 6 innings? That was good baseball.

The first game was a lot more than the second but the second game was much better! I hate the loss, but taking it to Verlander like that was pretty awesome!

I agree, . Verlander was on,and the pitches were good, he had good movement, Rangers were able to foul them off and extend at bats, the Rangers were up to the task
