Rangers to Host Town Hall Meeting Tonight. Just Don't Ask About Mark Mulder. Whatever You Do.
Our pal Jamey Newberg, of The Newberg Report, sends word of an odd happening tonight: a Texas Rangers Town Hall Meeting. It's taking place at the Academy Sports & Outdoors location on Forest Lane and North Central Expressway. Among those expected to attend: team president Jeff Cogen, Rangers general manager Jon Daniels, pitchers Kameron Loe and C.J. Wilson, radio announcer Victor Rojas and ex-Rangers catching great Jim Sundberg.
The shindig is expected to last from 6 to 7:30 p.m. And likely to be among the topics of conversation: Just how the hell did the Rangers let yet another big-name free-agent pitcher sign with another team. Word just came down the wire that Mark Mulder has signed with his former team, the World Series-winnin' St. Louis Cardinals. Surprise, surprise, surprise. So, by all means, attend tonight's town hall meeting, but don't let me catch you throwin' no softballs. --Robert Wilonsky
