    Went to a game in Arlington about 5 years ago in July. They charged more to sit on the third base side because it is in the shade the first 4 or 5 innings, before the sun went down. Not sure why they didn't put a roof on that ballpark, it can get miserably hot.

    The Chron and DaMN are doing a series of competing articles this week for the start of the 2016 Astros-Rangers rivalry. Here's the DaMN's take on the article you posted...

    http://sportsday.dallasnews.com/tex...errington-rangers-better-franchise-astros?f=r

    They also both did articles yesterday about why each team will win the West:

    Oh, and I'm going to the game tonight decked out in my 'Tuves jersey. Hopefully the bats come alive and Feldman pitches well!

    Never thought I would read those words.

    With how much that guy ***** on the Astros during his beat writing tenure, I hoped he would never again try... Well... He did.

    I loved his line about taking Colby Rasmus in a knife fight. That one got a chuckle out of me.

    Hopefully the Astros remember the sweep by the Rangers towards the end of last season where they relinquished the AL West for good and get revenge.... strike these Mo-Fos down!!

    WLW...it's a start

    That article was terrible. Didn't want to see who wrote it by giving it a click.....but seeing the comments...not surprised that was Smith.

    Every "point" made in it was essentially a back hand.....

    That sucks, he did the first few series of the year and it was really enjoyable. This last week has been tiresome

    I clicked on the link to make sure it wasn't a Ken Hoffman article. That's certainly how it read.
