Rangers' Pop-Ups Now the Most Exciting Play in Baseball

   Elvis Andrus is a kid playing a game. We're reminded of that almost every Rangers' game.
   Like when he gets a key hit in an 8-5 win over the Baltimore Orioles, as he did Monday night. Like when he over-celebrates an Adrian Beltre home run and irritates the third baseman, as he did Sunday afternoon.
   Or, even when he's monkeying around fielding a pop-up, as he does routinely these days.
   Weird game in Baltimore last night.
   Derek Holland's baby face, curled locks and grit is starting to remind me of Phil Mickelson. Scott Feldman pitched against his old team. Tom Grieve took over play-by-play duties in one inning, with Steve Busby sliding into the analyst's chair. Despite all the Roger Maris-hoopla, Chris Davis sure looked like Chris Davis, striking out in all four plate appearances. And the Rangers' offense produced six runs in the 6th, their best inning since May 16.
   Thanks to the quirky relationship between Andrus and Beltre, the game was successful, and entertaining.

  1. Agreed. I think most of us enjoy the friendly banter and will keep doing so as long as they're winning. If Elvis is doing it and hitting .200, it's not as funny.

    3. Such painful responses... let's just think back to Oct 3, 2012. The Rangers can feel the collapse just around the corner. :) Hmmm the Rangers have so many more fans, but had to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
