Thoughts from the Game

  • If traffic was that bad for a Rangers game, I do not want to be out there within a week of a Cowboys game
  • Ian Kinsler is hitting the ball very well. Everything was solid contact
  • Michael Young is a very good defensive 3rd baseman
  • Josh Hamilton has not found his groove yet, but his Willie Mays catch in center was great
  • Nelson Cruz looked off on every play in right field, not a good sign
  • Hank's Homies should be excited, he seems motivated this year
  • Marlon Byrd continues to be too productive to ignore
  • Chris Davis looked silly at the plate
  • Salty showed why his bat earned the starting job
  • Andrus was nimble and efficient, exactly what we want
  • Millwood was fooling hitter all day, lots of sky high pop ups
  • Grady Sizemore is fast... beat out a for sure double play by making it to 2nd
  • Nothing like a packed house to fire up the troops
  • Note to the home crowd, our pitchers throw worse when you get rowdy
  • Opening Day is much better than Monday at the Office

Sounds like you had a lot of fun. I hope to make it out there some time this summer. Sad to hear Chris Davis looked silly at the plate.
