ST30: Rangers lose again, this time to Giants, 7-6

A big back and forth game. Michael Tucker had a great game, with a double, triple, & HR. I kind of wished I could see this game, and not just hear it, as I don’t get to see games from SF all that often.

Chan Ho Park was just “OK”. One not so great inning and a few decent ones combining for an “eh” outing. Possibly bad news about Park, though having to come out of the game. All the stories say he’s fine, but with his history the last two years? Can’t say it’s not worrying at the least.

I’m up in the air about the reports in the paper today about Milton Bradley being a Ranger. On one hand, he’s a tremendous baseball player. He’s got skills like you’d die to get. However, he’s one colossal ass. I’m really torn as to whether we want him or not. Plus I wonder how he’ll get along with Buck Showalter, who is himself a hardass (but I like that in a manager).
