I would bet that Kinsler gets done this week.
Open Sunday Night Baseball tonight. Harry on the bump. This spring training Harry was 27/2-k/bb.
KC up on LAA 7-3 in the 9th. Got a chance to put a game between us. I know its only the 3rd game of the year, but every game matters this year.
I think he said opening day was the deadline and if it wasn't done by then that they'd just wait till the offseason.
I think that was Hamilton's stance. I agree with COACH and think that Kinsler's deal gets done very soon.
I knew Hamilton took that stance but so did Ian and the Rangers. There was an article about it on ESPN Dallas but I can't get the link to attach for some reason.
Edit: OK, it finally attached.

How does everyone think Yu will do tonight?
I think he will dominate tonight and will continue to do that this season.
Hope you're right. Lot of money riding on him.
By the end of the season he WILL be the #1 guy on the staff.
I think after devastating the Mariners the first time thru the order. He turns to the Seattle dugout and yells DO YOU YIELD!! They yield. Ichiro commits death by Seppuku
So yeah I think it goes pretty well.
Goes to show what I know.
Lets see how he looks in the 2nd. I hope the Rangers can erase the 4-0 deficit.
oh my this is kinda scary.
WTH??? I just flipped over to the game. Does Yu suck or something? Nerves? What gives?
Combination of nerves and bloopers in the 1st.
This sure isn't pretty. And, to make matters a bit worse, CJ throws a gem and beats the Twins. Short term pain but, hopefully, a lot of long term gain.
Things are looking up now that Yu settled down and Nellie, Josh, and Moreland have all gone yard to make it 8-5 Rangers in the top of the 7th. If the good guys can hang on to this one, it'd certainly be a great lift for Yu to get his first win after such a miserable start.

Having trouble locating the FB
Looks like he gets a fresh start. B-O-O-M-S-T-I-C-K!!!
Thank God for Nelly. That ball was hauling ass.
Getting a win after having a night like he's had should help him big time.
Hes battled his ass off. Ton of nerves and didnt have his best stuff but has been really good the last 3innings .Hes settled down and found rhythm and been tough Plus hes saved the BP. Was hoping to see a 12 shutout but this was impressive as well. Id be interested to see how many swinging strikes hes had tonight. I bet its quite a few.
Im happy but I'm a homer.
I'm actually really impressed at how well he battled back, he was so scared his first and beginning of the second innings but after that was close to lights out until he ran out of gas in the 6th (110 pitches will do that to you, 42 in the 1st alone). He's got a ton of potential and can't wait for his next start!
Can the Rangers F'in mash the baseball or what!!! Yu will do nothing but continue to get better...I almost caught him a couple of times trying to breathe through his eyelids!!
Tomorrow is another interesting day with Feliz on the mound...
