Welcome Back, Baby!

He's baaaaack! This news alone is enough to entice me back to Dallas before baseball season is up. In case you haven't heard, my beloved Pudge is headed back to the Rangers - hellz, yeahz. This is some exciting news folks. Heading into tonight's game against Minnesota, the Rangers actually have a one-game lead in the AL wild-card race and this latest acquisition could seal the deal. That's right, for the first time in 10 years, the Texas Rangers could find themselves back in the playoffs. After bouncing around from the Marlins to the Tigers, 2 World Series visits (one win), and then a recent short stint with the Astros, Rodriguez has returned to his roots. He is home. And I couldn't be happier.

PS - Dear Brett Favre, retire already and damn you for going to the Vikings.

You are the best! I thought I was going to break this news to you. Why did I ever doubt you.
Good thing the Rangers let him go when they did (and got NOTHING for him). He really didn't have anything left. Oh yeah, except that World Series!!!

Yee a little faith AP, you can take the girl outta Texas but....

I did get a flood - ok, like 3 - texts regarding the glorious news and was pretty stoked. Like I said, this might get me down to Tejas before the season ends. So exciting. And if you look back in previous posts you will note some hopeful Ranger shout-outs from time to time. I knew you'd be proud Andy :)
