You Gotta Be Freakin' Kidding Me, Now Yu Is Injured

This has got to be a record or something for players/starters getting injured in such a short amount of time. There is a chance Elvis' arm is still hurt. Harrison is not healthy and I get the feeling he never will be right again. So again, is it the curse of Nolan or Kins? Or the curse of Kolan (you get it-I combined Nolan and Kins)?

Or can we just go with the old trusty: Way to go Wash!


So Feliz Was Sent Down to the Minors...

...representing just another kick in the jimmy for your Texas Rangers. So what are we calling this? The Nolan or Kins curse?  Kins did say he wanted them to 0-162. At this pace they won't have any starters left for opening day.


Here Is My Preview At

The good folks at asked some Texas Rangers blogger-types 6 questions regarding your Texas Rangers' off-season.  Posts here are usually pretty short and sweet so in keeping with that my answers to their questions were short and sweet too.  By the way I answered these questions before I heard that Yu was injured too.  Here are my answers:
1) How would you grade the offseason?
C-.  And that's being nice. Profar is out, Soto is out. Holland is out. Kins is gone. Sure Fielder and Choo were added but pitching is a huge question mark and little was done to address it. 

2) Will Prince Fielder be just what this team needs?
Does Prince play second? How many different pitches does he have?  In other words no, he's not just what the team needs because there are too many holes for one player to fill. 

3) Which roster battle will be the most intriguing during spring training?
At this point the roster battles are who will play 2B with Profar out for a while. Next would be the battle for the last few spots in the starting rotation. 

4) What rookie, if any, will make the most impact on the team in 2014?
Maybe Rougned Odor at 2B if Josh Wilson doesn't work out replacing Profar at 2B. 

5) What will be the final record of the team and where will they finish in the division?
Just a guess of course with so many question marks. 87-75, they somehow finish second in an evenly matched division. 

6) Which player from your team do you most enjoy watching?
By far Adrian Beltre. From his weird phobia of him getting his head touched by his teammates in the dugout after he belts a homer to him keeping things light in the infield and joking around with Elvis, any base runner on 3B, or an ump, you can tell he enjoys playing the game. And I think this year he's going to firmly take over as a/the leader of the ball club. 

Check out the full preview with everyone else's answers to the preview questions.
