It's easy for us to ***** about fat Tyler White, but just imagine trying to be a Rangers fan and having to watch Odor every night. Now that dude sucks. And they are paying him some good money. At least Tyler White ain't costing us anything except catering
I know you're just trying to be funny but there's a lot of truth in this. Everybody outside of NYY has to have league minimum salary guys on their roster.

White has been terrible in 2019 but there have been stretches in his career where he has been pretty good. We have guys at AAA with potential but I don't believe we have a single hitter down there that has done a thing at the major-league level.

Sure I'd rather see Tucker getting a ABs right now but most of the guys @ AAA (Fisher, SuperJack, Stubbs, Reed until recently and so on) that we bring up if we cut Kemp & White would not do any better and will not do any better than they have in their careers. That doesn't mean White is not sucking, that's just the reality of what's behind him.

Completely different team when Altuve is playing like himself

Brantley has the ability to let the ball get so deep. His hands are incredibly quick.

Putting up a 5 spot for JV in the second inning on normal years means a win.

This season this game is far from over

All right, got those runs back. Now let's have Verlander throw a quick shutdown inning, please!

I'm more than happy to eat crow on how Altuve was playing. He is 6-8 in the last game + 2 innings!

Since his return from injury:

After Friday's game: 22-79 .278

After 2 innings today: 28-87 .322

Who is filling in for Kalas today? And why does Blummer sound so irritated?

Noticed that too... he has been filling in for the whole series. Wish they would have just let Berkman fill in again. Berkman and Blum would make a good combo.

Found it...TK on vacation for Rangers/Angels series. Eschenfelder in the booth. Still wondering why Blum seems PO'd.

Is it Kevin Eschenfelder (sp?)...it was funny when he asked Blum to look something up and Blummer told him "you look it up!"

Odor can't hit the ball and can't catch the ball. What can he do?

Curious if bregman was telling the ump "those strikes were all called balls in my first AB. Be consistent"
