Sometimes I like to tune in to watch the Texas Rangers just long enough to see them blow a 3 run lead.

Seriously, I love all Dallas sports teams. I really do.

Is it too much to ask for the Texas Rangers to win at least one World Series every decade? Just one World Series a decade is all I'm asking.

I'm so sick of the, "Oh well, there's always next season," approach to Dallas baseball.

It starts with pitching, obviously. The Rangers need some great pitchers, and they need to hang on to them.

We don't seem to have a problem getting great offensive players. We get great players like Michael Young, who may very be a Hall of Famer, but why in the hell would he want to stay here when we keep losing--it's likely he's going to ask to be traded to a team that's got it's act together, and that's a trajedy.

When it comes to filling up the bullpen with talented young players, I don't know why things always seem to fizzle out. It's been like this for my entire life, literally. And, yes, I have literally been frustrated by the Texas Rangers my entire life. I just want to see them win.

I've grown up watching the Rangers. I went to the Nolan Ryan games. I attended the games when the Yankees swept them in the playoffs. Hell, I was just happy they made it to the playoffs for once.

Actually, I would be satisfied if the Rangers made a couple of deep playoff runs. They don't need to become a dynasty like the Yankees although it would be nice if the Rangers knocked them out once or twice. That's what I'd like to see happen.
