    No one ever said they should be happy about it. Personally, I subscribed to the Paul O'Neil school of hating all outs equally. Strikeout, popout, groundout, flyout, hate 'em all.

    Good players are always an exception. Otherwise we wouldn't recognize them as being good. Yet good contact hitters are actually more of an exception than good hitters with high strikeout totals in modern baseball (and by modern I mean over the last 50 years).

    I'm witchcrafting everybody.

    This hire could be the key to a Texas turnaround.

    Barry Zito has contacted the new Rangers' skipper about his interest in moving there to play for him.

    The Rangers need more than just Zito. Rangers pitching has been lousy for years. The park they play in doesn't help.
