How far can these Rangers go?


Rangers CelebrateIf you haven’t been paying attention to the Texas Rangers, then you have been missing all the excitement. The season started off bad, but things started to turn around in May and have continued into this month. While there is still a lot of season to go, a lot of the production and help is coming from guys who weren’t even expected to be up in the majors this season. While most fans had little to no expectations on this season, they are starting to prove everyone wrong and now they could possibly be in position for a post season run when it matters most.

There is some hope with some of the big names coming back between now and September, but at the same time, it could also hurt chemistry of a team which seems to be playing better each game. There are some similarities with the 2010 Rangers team who made the first World Series run. That teams were just a bunch of guys who got hot at the perfect time, and most of them were relatively unknown guys to the rest of the league. The season is long, and it could take its toll, but right now the Rangers are hot, climbing up the standings and seem to be one of the hottest teams in baseball.

I’m not saying this team can go all the way, but they could make it a lot more fun going forward through the summer months. Only time will tell if they have what it takes to make that run.

Tough Loss could benefit Mustangs

The Mustangs had high hopes and big expectations coming off winning both the regular season conference championship and conference tournament championship. Coming in as a number six seed, they expected to make a deep run into the tournament and hopefully surprise even more people than they did last season with an NIT Championship game run. But Larry Brown had his Mustangs expecting to surprise the world and make a deep run into April. But even he knew the first game would be as challenging as the last game. Continue reading

Cowboys Sign Greg Hardy; but at what cost?

The Dallas Cowboys made another splash in free agency when they signed free agent, Greg Hardy. But this signing comes with a lot of trepidation from the Cowboys fan base. Most of the time, a fan base cheers when a big name player is signed to their team. But in this case, Hardy is part of a few players who no fan wants associated with their team. He was charged and convicted of domestic abuse in North Carolina, but then the charges were dropped.

Cowboys control Destiny; eyeing playoffs

Cowboys DestinyThe Dallas Cowboys are facing a tough test on Sunday against the Colts on Sunday, but they have the biggest carrot of recent history in front of them. If they continue to win, and can stay ahead of the Philadelphia Eagles, they will win the NFC East and end a playoff drought. The Colts have already earned a playoff spot, and will most likely rest key guys to prevent injuries. This sets up well for the Cowboys since they are still playing for their post season lives.

Dallas Mavericks Acquire Rondo

RondoThursday Night the Dallas Mavericks finalized a trade where they will acquire Rajon Rondo from the Boston Celtics, in a surprising move which seemed to come out of nowhere and built steam throughout the day. While getting the talent of a Rondo will be a benefit to the team, there will also be some loss with having to trade-off Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder, Jameer Nelson, a first round pick in 2015, second round pick in 2016, and a 12.9 million trade exception. In this case, the positive outweighs the negative for his talent. Continue reading
