Broadcasters & Attendance

Tonight, I was looking around my own site, and saw a few pages that needed updating now that the 2012 season has been completed.  They are the “Broadcaster History” page, as well as the “Attendance History” page.  Given the Rangers announced late last week what the broadcast teams will be for 2013, I figured this would be a good time to update these pages, as they’re pretty static.  The attendance one gets updated just once a year, and the broadcaster one as well, unless there’s a midseason change (which has happened a few times recently).  After updating the pages, I have a few notes and observations.

Josh Hamilton and Contract Numbers

Texas Rangers Offseason Player Thoughts

I felt energized by Jeff’s offer to help out with the writing here on this site.  I decided not to wait for Spring Training 2013 or some big off season move to write something.  I decided to break out the keyboard and plow through an article that takes a look at the 2012 Rangers roster.   Basically, it’s a few remarks about each player, both in what happened in 2012, and perceptions for said player in 2013.  I’ve gone through and listed all 39 players that played for the big club in the 2012 season, and some thoughts on each of them.  Let me know what you think – if you agree or disagree in the comments (or if I’ve made some egregious error). :)
