with opening day today I figured I'll give my predicted record for the Rangers this season
84-78 2nd place in the AL West with Ian Kinsler being the team MVP

So what are your predictions?

Hamilton will have the most RBI's in the AL again this season.
Kinsler will lead the AL in batting average.
Young will be traded
Texas' will have the worst ERA again this season.

Great game all around. I love having an offense where literally no pitcher scares me.

Salty Breakout '09 is off to a great start.

I was foolish and started Cliff Lee in one of my leagues. So very foolish.

It was a great day all around. The Rangers and Cubs won, while the Yankees lost, no thanks to the big ticket acquisitions from the Yankees.

I hope Teixeira doesn't even sniff the postseason while a he's a yankee, or for that matter on any other team. I really hope the Rangers for the most part stay away from anything Boras, I think only Millwood and Jones are his only clients on the Rangers, however he is a beast of an agent for players. I mean anybody that could get Brad Wilkerson $3 million must be amazing. That guy was the worst, and I mean the worst player ever for the Rangers. He was so bad.

Chris Davis is a Boras client. Yeah, that should give you pause. It makes me wonder if the smart move would be to trade Davis and go with Smoak at 1B in a year.

well that is disappointing, maybe he would be willing to take a smaller contract when it's up at Texas because he is home grown product (sort of) however I wouldn't be opposed to trading him either depending on the value we could get back.

He's a home-grown. The Rangers were also his favorite team growing up. In fact, there was a mention on today's broadcast, at least within the portion I was able to watch, how Davis used to go to Rangers opening day games.

Will he give a discount? I highly doubt it, not because of him, but rather because of his agent. He'll have to divorce his agent for anything like that to happen. Then again, who knows what the baseball economy will look like by the time his free agent clock is ticking.

Troy Aikman on Roy Williams:

Quote:
When asked Tuesday if Williams was ready for the No. 1 receiving role, Aikman said, "Well, he better [be.]

"I don't think you can give up what the Cowboys gave up for somebody and not make that a sure bet," Aikman said. "This isn't like drafting a No. 1 receiver out of the college draft and then saying, 'Well, we think he's got all the skills to be a great player for us.' He's been in the NFL. He's caught balls in the NFL. They've got a lot of tape on him, and they had the ability to talk to a lot of people who had coached him, played against him, played with him.

"If Roy Williams doesn't turn out to be the player they thought he would be when they made the trade, I think this would be one of the biggest busts in the history of the league."

So not just the biggest trade bust in the history of the Cowboys. The entire NFL? Here's where ol' No. 8 drove his point home - perhaps too close to home if you're team owner Jerry Jones.

"I just think that when you have the chance to evaluate a player to the degree the Cowboys were able to and then to give up what you gave up," Aikman said, "if he's not a No. 1 receiver and not a highly productive player for this team, that's a huge flaw within their scouting department."
Made me laugh that Aikman thinks this could be the worst trade in the history of the league (assuming he doesn't produce).

On March 19, Roy Williams (Safety) visited the Bengals and worked out for defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer.

Quincy Carter is back in football, playing for the Abilene Ruff Riders of the Indoor Football League. The former Georgia Bulldogs quarterback, who was arrested in February on a DWI charge in Texas, led the squad to its first win of the season Monday over the Odessa Roughnecks. Carter finished 18-of-31 for 235 yards passing and five touchdowns. The 31-year-old Carter earns the league standard of $200 per game, plus a $50 bonus for every win. His next start is Saturday against the Omaha Beef. -- Atlanta Journal-Constitution

good to hear, I was always a fan of the Q. It was sad to see him throw his career away like he did.

Ah, so you were that fan. I always wondered who that was.

No way was he better than Testeverde or Bledsoe, not that either were good QBs either. He only got his shot because Jerry Jones was seduced into the thinking of the time that a team needed a mobile QB. The problem was Quincy Carter was not mobile nor was the offense geared to operate with a mobile QB.
