Well we tried to see what we had, apparently it wasn't much.

Perhaps a small sign of progress for our minor league system.

It might be too early to say this, but if we were going to settle for someone hitting .200 with pretty good defense, we already have Sergio Alcantara at AA, and he's not a finished product yet. 

I think the rest of year should give us a fairly adequate look at Ronny.

Wow, as Tiger fans today deal with the emotional end of the Dixon Machado era - Ranger fans tonight will be witnessing the pummeling that signals the beginning of the end of the Yovani Gallardo era.

Ronny Rodriguez knows he has big shoes to fill.  I expect he plays like it tonight.

You really think that Machado is going somewhere else?   I highly doubt it.

There's always a contender hungry for a .553OPS, a nice family and a bright smile.

Who would you want from the Dodgers for Michael Fulmer.    I would guess Alex Verdugo would be at the top of the list.   Put him in Right,  move Nick to 1b,  deal with the learning this year and if he doesn't get better make him the DH next year.    Also a starting pitching prospect that they could use right now.    Maybe a 2nd base prospect too?   Or are we only waiting for the Lugo era to begin?

The night they sent old Dixon down.........

 

Maybe now that the pressure is off over making any little mistake and losing his gig, Iglesias will finally play a little more relaxed.....

seriously, I wonder if Toledo picks him up when he clears waivers. He is still younger than Kozma and would serve about the same function.

Clears waivers?   That'll never happen.  The Orioles are going to need a Machado soon.

Yes and that's why Avila should trade him for prospects instead of going the lazy DFA route.  Should have kept him until the deadline to drive up the price.

So, Lynn Henning was wrong about Machado?

The outfield dimensions were just brutally unfair for Machado.

You know, it was mentioned off and on about Machado having a young family.  It’s probably for the best to get him away from Deuce and Artie.

An error charged to the Deuce?   That official scorer is finished in the D.

It's OK.  He has a cute 26-year old blonde daughter.  Protesting the error was the opening that Deuce needed.
