    I take Dallas because we wouldn't be paying him
    206 million as the diamondbacks are paying for Greinke.

    Haha excellent, well done!

    It's really funny (and sad) that the unanimous "worst free agent signing of last offseason so far" is the same guy that Castrated-jero is trying to prove his point with. It's rather unbelievable.

    "Hey guys, you know that 32 year old that is getting paid at least $34,000,000 annual for the next 6 years, who is sporting a 4.71 ERA and a 1.3 WHIP going into today? I sure wish Crane was signing his paychecks, because he's way better than Dallas Keuchel. AND THAT'S THE REASON HINCH SHOULD GET FIRED!!!

    I actually want to learn how to post gifs due to the ridiculous of this dude's post, as I would post the gif of that really confused basketball fan with his arms out shaking his head in confusion/disgust. That guy has the perfect wtf face/reaction, and it gives me a chuckle most times that it's used.

    As someone who is plenty guilty myself....we really do need to quit feeding the teenage troll, just let him spew and ignore it...not always easy


    In any case, Greinke isn't a "pitched bad early but turned it around situation" in any way...he has dominated on the road all season, but has been hammered at home, even recently

    Road starts this year he has given up 2, 1, 2, 1, 0 runs

    Home starts this year he has given up 7, 4, 7, 2, 4, 3, 4

    And yea that 4 he gave up in his last start was in 6 innings

    Arizona is a tough place to pitch, probably second only to Coors, maybe it has gotten in his head

    Even if we don't come back here, we will have had an 8-2 stretch to get us back into things. Take two of three over the weekend and keep it rolling, series wins series wins series wins

    Just hit the reply button and copy my post string. Posting gif's are like posting any other images.

    The above guy is really wondering about castrated-jero51's intentions here...

    Agreed on the series issue. Just keep winning series, and hopefully end this horrible Rangers curse after the Oakland series.

    And he is loving the 1.3 whip of ZG, but it wasn't long ago he was laughing about Luhnow trading for Giles because Giles had a "terrible whip of 1.2"

    THANK YOU! Rep going your way my friend. In a way, finding the new nickname and then getting to see this gif almost makes the loss worth it. I'll also gladly take 3 out of 4.

    It's time for Rasmus to move down in the order. He has been horrendous in the last month or so.

    Oh well. Good series!

    Time to take care of business against Oakland, don't look past them towards Texas. Take at least 2/3 from Oakland and then get rid of the dang Rangers curse!

    The 2 inherited runners being charged to him hurts, but Dallas Keuchel looked alright today.

    Yup, I thought it was him, but I didn't want to waste any of my time on him, so I didn't look it up. But thank you for bringing that point up.

    Bats were silent, but it was a good couple of weeks of baseball.

    Rangers series still left a bad taste in mouth... But things have been clicking since.

    Ohhh my god, i can't believe this. You know that great relievers have a whip under 1??????????????

    A good starter can have a whip in the mid 1.20's

    Do you see the difference between a reliever with a 1.20 whip and a starter with a 1.20 whip????

    And just for the record, Greinke's whip is UNDER 1.30
