Just saying since the Rangers did hi a huge favor, it would be nice if he gave them a small one.

The Rangers did not do him any favors. They found a player who produced at a price under his value. Any team would've gladly taken him off the Rangers hands throughout this time. Had he failed when the Rangers first signed him, they would have absolutely no problem dumping him and forcing him to either play in the minors or coach high school gym. In fact, this whole forum would demand this.

The only reason he stuck with the team was not any "favor" but rather his own play, which was superior to any other options the Rangers had.

He got no favors and he owes nobody a favor.
