Rangers fans are already tired of Kameron Loe, Bruce Chen and Jamey Wright;
Well, readers of my site know I feel about Jamey Wright, and I’m no fan of Bruce Chen, either. But I’d like to know what fans they’re talking about with Kameron Loe. It’s certainly no actual fans who follow the Rangers. Now I know national writers take a different slant, and local fans have a touch of the “homer vote” in them, but that remark seems a bit out of line. I mean really, the fans are already tired? How does he figure that? I mean, honestly.
Everything’s bigger in Texas (except for baseball’s third-smallest ticket prices),
Darnit – don’t tell Hicks that, please. We’ll be hearing about how the $75 seat in the lower bowl is a bargain price. Yeesh! All of their writers weigh in on where they think the Rangers will finish. None of them pick the Rangers as first or second. They’re all third or fourth, and only two of them (Gammons at 81, and Neyer at 80) have them winning 80 or more. The low guy (Olney) has ’em at 70-92. I don’t think so.
I don’t think we’re winning 95 games here, my personal feeling is 87-88 wins, and second place, probably NOT a wild card.
