The mushroom cloud from the Kinsler-for-Fielder supertrade that blindsided us all still lingers weeks later. As the dust finally begins to settle, we find ourselves punch-drunk, covered in dust, and wondering what exactly just happened.
Right after the Prince Fielder press conference, Rangers GM Jon Daniels hopped on the phone with Ben and Skin!
No one expected the Texas Rangers to acquire Prince Fielder this offseason. So when General Manager Jon Daniels says there are still moves to be made, it’s smart to listen.
Rangers general manager hops off a plane just in time to give Ben a call on his birthday, and Ben takes advantage by squeezing in a few free agency questions.
The Texas Rangers are bringing baseball back to San Antonio. Organizing officials said Friday the AL West rivals will play exhibition games at the Alamodome on March 28-29.
Shame on JD and Nolan. Shame on them for letting petty differences ruin what was the best run organization in MLB. And shame on the owners for not owning their team.
Daniels has won the fight and has complete control. Whatever happens in the next few years, he deserves all the credit or all the blame.
On the heels of the Nolan Ryan retirement, Ben and Skin took calls for once, and one caller took Ben over the edge.
Nolan is a great businessman and the use of his name alone gave the Rangers credibility. Now, the Rangers have some credibility to rely on, but will do this without Nolan.
Texas Rangers CEO Nolan Ryan will retire effective October 31, the team announced on Thursday.
Whether it was just verbal or physical, the most important takes from this is, Nolan and JD can’t stand each other and Daniels can do whatever he wants.
20 minutes of Ben and Skin asking all the questions that need to be answered regarding the tension in the Rangers front office, the 2013 season, and where the club will go from here.
