Am I seeing this correctly? Mr. Baseball is 1 for 12 with 6 strike outs? I see he has picked right back up where he left off last year.

agree 100%....trout on 2nd base with 1 out and puljos/hamilton due up...aybar almost beat that play too....that would be a tough one 1st 2nd no out w/puljos up

We're playing in Texas today. For some reason, I'm expecting a lot of HR's from both teams. Where most fly balls turn into HRs in Arlington.

So far nothing has gone very deep.

The ingrate Rangers fans boo'd Hamilton. I think this rivalry is more on the Texas side. I don't hear these type of booings at Angels stadium when Texas plays. I hear more when they play the Red Sox or Yankees.

Downs is more than likely going to have 2 loses. Why is he still playing. This coach is going to be fired very very soon.

I'm going to disagree 100% with you on the ingrate Rangers fans. The ingrate is Hamilton who trashed the city because they couldn't pay him what he wanted and let him go. The Rangers did more for his career by giving him a babysitter and a chance than he ever would have got. Screw him. Happy to see him booed every time he was at the plate and every time he touched the ball. Even better to see him go 0-4. I don't care about any supposed rivalry. This was personal between the fans of Texas and Josh.

Okay, and he wasn't their star player, and doesn't deserve respect for what he did while he was there.

He was one of a team. He isn't the sole reason the Rangers got to the post season twice. Yes he was part of the team. This team bent over backwards for him and his quirks and addictions and for him to talk down on the area and the fans was absolute BS. Then to completely stop trying once you realize you aren't going to get the money you want here. Yes the fans have every right to boo him.

Okay, I never saw that "Dallas Fort-Worth area not a true Baseball town" comment. Still, he's right.

I believe 48,850 people let him know today how wrong he was. He wasn't expecting to hear it to the extent he did. It hurt him and his post game comments show how much it affected him.

And according to the latest garbage coming out of his mouth, Anaheim isn't a baseball town either. Anaheim has NOT FILLED their stadium for the last 30 years. They haven't even filled it for 1 year.

If that's his definition of a baseball town, he's not wrong then. I'm not offended by it, but I understand how some fans would take offense.

Anaheim has drawn nearly 3 million a year for 10 years

Yes, I saw that, but the average attendance for any of those years did NOT equate to a full building.

This is a really bad baseball team. Iannetta has to be moved up in the order above Trumbo. Why was Downs pitching to Kinsler?!?!?!

Mad at MLB.tv

They can see my IP adress and I have entered already my payment info there as the season autom. charged my credit card. I tried to watch live the Rangers game and blackout screen comes and asks to enter credit card info in unprotected flash-enviroment. WTF MLB...I already emailed them Can't those mofos see I am sitting in Finland.

Normal MLB.com looks also weird as ****. Zip code? whatta hell is this...

I guess that whole outreach program to the rest of the world was all in talk; not in business practice.

If they're still asking you about your zip code after stating you're from another country... then mlb.com deserves a face palm.

Got it working after some retooling with the account. MLB customer service is typical robot answers though, no help from there.

Game on, 5-0 lead.

Pujols and Trumbo with homers in the 1st. Hamilton is swinging at everything.

True. That 3rd pitch just moment ago I knew Harrison gets it low and Hamilton swings at it

Why do all our signings suck when they get here? Hamilton's hitting .050!
