    I can understand spelling Banister with two "n"s when you are accustomed to using his nickname Banny that is spelled with 2 of them. I have probably done it a few times myself. It is no biggie to me kind of like it isn't a biggie for folks to call Delino DeShields DDJ when he really isn't a junior.

    Crawler said he purposely says "Bannister" as a form of protest.

    That's one of the dumber things I've heard.

    Funny thing to me is, Reddit has a bot that will automatically reply to any post that spells it "Bannister" and remind them of the correct spelling.

    That is kind of hard to believe. If so then I don't understand why he didn't misspell almost everyone on the team's name up until this week. Sometimes we just have to admit a mistake and move on. lol

    Alan, Floyd and Brian all spelled theirs "Bannister". Jeff Banister spells his name differently than most it seems.

    You missed this yesterday. When I mentioned, again, that he consistently misspells Banister's name by placing an extra N, he responded that he did it on purpose as some sort of bizarre protest of Banister until he wins some playoff games.

    Last September we signed a young Cuban player named Yanio Perez.

    Rangers Agree To Sign Yanio Perez | BaseballAmerica.com

    He was the Rangers minor league player of the month in April. He is currently slashing.356/.429/.630 and may be on his way to another player of the month award as his stats are currently barely below what they were at the end of April. He plays all four corner positions, but mainly at 1B and RF currently. He also played 2B in Cuba. He is 21 and is playing for the Hickory Crawdads. Last night he hit his 9th HR and he also hit a triple.

    Pretty much 10 hit batsmen in the braves / blue Jays series and almost all of them were braves. Do you think we will see 20 next weekend? :noidea:

    Blow Jays are a classless bunch of punks. I'm sure warnings will be issued prior to the first game.

    Former Rangers great Shawn Tolleson had TJ surgery this week.

    As it should be.

    Things haven't gone exactly Tolley's way for quite some time now. Too bad for him really.

    I just hope we can beat them for once. They don't appear to be very good this year.

    They are playing better than they were. They are 10-7 this month and have won 7 of their last 11.

    Hopefully, he can get his career back on track after he recovers.
