Ask the Rangers (Anything, Seriously)
I’m headed out to Surprise, Arizona, today for a week at Texas Rangers spring training, which, I know, sounds about as inviting as a lunch-time waterboarding session. But, hey, duty calls. Like most of you, I’m not real jazzed about this Rangers season. We’re not alone.
Fox and ESPN have scheduled exactly zero Rangers games for national broadcasts. Most of the team’s recent transactions -- most of which I like, by the way -- are geared toward being legitimately competitively in 2009. So what, if anything, interests you about this season? I’ll follow Nolan Ryan around to see if the new president can have a tangible effect on things. Maybe bump into Hank Blalock and see how it feels to play with one less rib. Anything else? Lemme hear from you. Lots of lines open. Call me. Please? --Richie Whitt
