    How long does the Odor appeal process take? Would rather not see his punk a** this weekend.

    Personally, I think our playoff chances are bleak. But if we are to have any at all, we must play well vs the top of the division. That means Seattle and Texas.

    Especially in Arlington. But all cycles are broken eventually. The Rangers muster extra mojo when playing us. We need to respond in kind.

    LWL or WWL. I don't see Keuchel winning against Hamels. If he does, we can take the series easily.

    While I've always thought it ridiculous that those suburban mouth-breathers in built an open air stadium in Arlington, it's an absolutely beautiful ballpark that is barely 20 years old.

    But go ahead and take more tax money from those idiots... LOL. God Bless MMP.

    don't get why hodor is playing. what is there to appeal? I'd understand it if he ate some mexican beef , but the punch was clear as day.

    Trying to brain someone with a throw to first (that ended up in right field) is totally just playing for your team.

    I just don't get it. White finally gets hot again, raises his avg almost .50 points higher than Valbuena, hits 2 HR and a double then gets benched. So he doesn't get a hit off Sale then gets benched again. His potential is so much greater than Luis Valbuena it's ridiculous. Hinch is a bad manager sorry to say. I've been around baseball a long time and it is obvious his in game management and decision making is not good either. There is no reason Valbuena should be getting starts at first if he couldn't even hold down the 3rd base job. Hinch plays matchups without even reading the splits.

    Yes I know Valbuena has 2 HR vs Colby Lewis but White has so much more potential than Valbuena's career .227 average at 30 years of age!

    Yes you are, but you get away with it. Just like how fat ass Prince Fielder got away with shoving AJ Hinch last season. The Rangers are protected. What a joke.
