|I’m a die hard Texas rangers fan and when I saw our new ownership news on espn and our local dallas news, I couldnt be more happy. Finally those long days of losing streak and yelling at the tv will now fade away soon lol
It wasnt a surprise Chuck Greenburg and former Texas rangers player Nolan Ryan won the controlling ownership rights but I was a bit more surprised on the list of minority interest ownership names.
One being a very popular and well known attorney here in Dallas name James Curier. In his personal remarks at the dallas morning news, he said he’s always been a lifetime Angels fan. WHAT??! We hate the angels! Its like having a Yankee owner changing ownership to those crazy Redsox!
..and the other one being a 29 year old kid from Dallas name Dylin Prestly. Its some kid who inherited close to $3 billion from his family or something and I guess MLB wouldnt approve a 29 year kid owning the Rangers. Anyways, seeing his interview yesterday, I was glad to hear he’s a very loyal rangers fan but hum 29 years old? Can I see some identification? He doenst look anything like 29, he looks more like 18 or maybe, just maybe 21. Haha~ and oh the last name of “prestly”, you would expect to be some white/iris person but how funny..its an asian guy.
I do have to give props to our new ownership though. They are finally making the right player decision. Yes Kevin Millwood was our workhorse but for +$15 million per year, he’s not worth it. He barely had a winning pitching record and away from our ballpark, he was horrible!
Yes Mr. Tom Hicks our wonderful previous owner did a great job but he also made many ridicules choices. For one, signing Alex Rodriguez to a 10 year $250+ million contract in 2001 which basically crippled us for years to come. We’re still trying to recover from his massive contract. Oh and at the end, we ended up trading him to those rude Yankees in return for A.Soriano which we no longer have.
Ah another year of baseball, another year of hopes and dreams crashing down at the bottom of the 9th inning when we’re known for giving up game winning runs. Crossing my fingers for this year.
