Welcome to Texas, Michael Choice! Sorry if some of our fans can be racist as hell sometimes!

Last night, the Texas Rangers traded Second Baseman Ian Kinsler to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for First Baseman/Designated Hitter Prince Fielder. Ian was the only Jewish member of the Rangers and he always held a special place in my heart for that. It’s going to be very weird in Texas without him.
Ian was the embodiment of a teammate. From his incredibly complex handshakes and other fun traditions with the team to his pure friendship with the guys around him, he was the kind of guy who would bleed for the person next to him. When Josh Hamilton was still a Ranger and relapsed on alcohol the last time, Ian was the person who came to the Dallas bar to take him out of that environment and get him home. Because that’s the kind of guy Ian is. A team player.
It’s never “just a game,” but Ian made it feel that way sometimes. His pure love of the sport and his teammates was infectious. There would never be a sour locker room, as long as Ian was there.
I understand the trade and see the obvious upside for both the Rangers and the Tigers. Both teams got good players, Detroit shed a contract, and the Rangers made room for Profar. I see all that, but I feel like I’m saying good bye to my best friend.
I wish you the best of luck in Detroit, Ian. Continue to do what you do and everyone there will love you as much as DFW has the last several years.
Baruch Hashem. B’siyata D’shmaya. I’ll miss you.

Nelson Cruz’s suspension for PEDs is over. He’s in at DH for Game 163. ¡Vamos Rangers! Let’s do this!

The Rangers announced that their opening day will be March 31st„ 2014 in Arlington. These are my two favorite pitchers in the world and I think that I may openly weep at this game. Please don’t get traded by then, Cliff.

We do not need a play by play of the douchiest guy in recent history to pitch for the Rangers.

Since I’ll be in Europe next week, I need to sell my two lower level, corner box tickets for the sold out game on 7/24 versus the hated Yankees. Section 40, Row 47, aisle seats. Face value ($56 each.) Lemme know.

Always answer your phone on Sunday afternoons, because sometimes it’s a friend with a free Rangers ticket to a game that starts in 30 minutes.
And you might get to see Joakim Soria’s 11 pitch shut down inning in his Rangers debut.
