After an offseason that saw the Rangers spend more on free agents than any other team in MLB history, a very contentious labor dispute that caused a delay in the season starting and threatened to shorten the season, and a streamlined Spring Training, we have finally arrived at the official start of the MLB season for the Rangers.

It's right into the frying pan for our boys, as they visit Toronto to face one of the top AL teams. Newly signed Jon Gray gets the honor of the first game pitching duties. Following him will be Dunning and Howard, so the safe money says the bullpen will get extended time on the mound this weekend.

The lineup will feature several new acquisitions. Semien, Seager, Garver, and Miller figure to contribute heavily this season. El Bombi is said to have retooled his approach, and fingered crossed that Lowe takes a step forward in his output.

But most importantly: RANGERS BASEBALL IS BACK.

Well the grill is being prepped and a short workday today.
Could so easily have had no baseball with all the CBA mess but grateful the great game is nigh upon us

The dream still lives. Yes a tough opening series. Love to get the win today

I told ya'll about the "KID" so maybe you'll believe me from now on. At times I think his saddle still blazes a mite.

Thinking it was shortly after he settled down and became a RANGER and a dang good one.

I think we are looking at 77-85 this year and the last of the losing seasons for this decade.
With the new additions to the team and a little luck, we make it to a .500 year.

Aaron Judge turned down a reported 7/213.5 extension. Quite possibly the dumbest move I've heard in quite some time.

That is crazy money to turn down

At his age and with his injury history (and his size suggests there's more of that to come), it's dumb on the face of it. But he's the most popular player on the most popular team... why would you turn that down?

I hope he takes it. It straps the Yanks

With the new CBA there will most likely be a lot of turning down great offers going on. The higher minimums and the higher luxury tax thresholds will make a lot of guys think they can get record breaking contracts.

Or maybe Judge just does not want to play for the Yanks long term. Wonder who the agent is and if statement made. I think this helps Gallo get a contract there but potentially makes for bad blood this season in the ranks there

I don't think Joey is too keen on playing there.
