    Has the city of Arlington congratulated the Astros?

    And the Oilers got the first football championship. Who cares that it was the AFL championship.

    This is always fun. Love how the Rangers' catcher just ignores the ball and heads out to 2B

    let's make a run for cole hamels next august, rangers can pick up 15 million. He'd be an excellent 5th starter.

    Verlander
    Dallas
    Lance
    Morton
    Hamels.
    Why make the move? because Crane swims in gold coins.

    If the guy at 1B keeps running around the bases does he score? Would remind me of the missed foul ball call we had last year when Castro didn't go field the ball.

    The correct answer is "who the heck knows what the umpires will call".

    As a Houston sports fan, I've never had this feeling of arrogance when looking down on a rival.

    The fact that we were so far down, and they were sooooo close to a title. Now the tables have completely turned, except we didn't "get close" :D
