Don't get me wrong, I still love 'em. I know a big reason they are doing so poorly is injuries. Matt Harrison, Mitch Moreland, Jurickson Profar and Prince Fielder--done for the season. Derek Holland--he's my favorite, but practically done for the season. Seemingly everyone else that matters has had at least one stint on the DL. They've already used 50 players this season and we have 67 games to go.
I know none of the Rangers read this, but just in case they run across it I want to say -- Keep your heads up and DON'T GET HURT!!
Some people say it's the curse of Nolan, but I don't believe it one bit. Well, not much anyway.
This is my newest addition, a Nolan Ryan Ginter box topper.
2. I am SICK and TIRED of the Never Ending Celebration of All Things Derek Jeter*. The endless reports of his round the league tour and gift ceremonies. The 2014 All Star Game to Celebrate Derek Jeter sponsored by Brut for Men and Fox Sports.
I'm not trying to take away from Jeter's career. I'm just tired of it and him and it's really not even his fault. He seems like a nice guy and may not even want all the attention. I hope the Yankees don't make the playoffs because they will literally kill all of us with Jetermania.
*I'm fairly certain my rant against Jeter is partially, if not entirely, due to the fact that my Rangers are in the cellar and don't look to be getting much better this season. Of course, it might also be due to my long-standing disdain for the Yankees.
