I normally like powder blues. But I love the throwbacks they wore against the nationals last season. (I don't remember from what year they're from)
If you're talking about the 1972 (50th anniversary) uniforms, I agree they were awesome.





Should be permanent home jerseys.

That's my favorite Rangers uniform ever. Probably because I remember '72

I agree, generally. But for as bad as the Rockies are, I do like their black and their purple tops.

What exactly is going to be featured on the Rangers' "City Connect" jerseys? Six Flags? If they try to tie them to Dallas, Arlington will revolt. And if they try to tie them to Arlington, the rest of MLB will laugh.

I'd assume they tie them to Dallas or Fort Worth. Who cares what Arlington would do at this point?

I feel pretty sure it'll be something with a western tinge, and maybe some sort of Texas Rangers style logo.

I believe it, but I would be lying if I didn't say I was slightly concerned about rotation health. Most of that +9.9 WAR is considering deGrom, Heaney, Eovaldi, and Gray can stay healthy and make 25+ starts this season.

I don't really understand the Yankees being number two on that list.. their only real addition I can think of is Rodon.

Might be adding in Judge since he was a FA

I am not certain about this, but they could be adding Judge's WAR to that number because he technically was a free-agent.

Edit: bmac beat me to it. Judge had a 10 WAR (bonkers tbh) season last year and is projected for a 7.4 WAR for 2023.

I'll show my ignorance (early start this year).

If our WAR is +9.9, that means we should win ~10 more games this year, right?! So, 78Wins?!

Meh.

So, Perez was signed as a FA. His WAR (Baseball-Reference) was +5.0.

Losing Matt Moore impacted that, as well.

deGrom is listed as a +1.4, but I'm assuming that was based on 11GS. Could that equate to a +4?

And if he replaces Arihara and Spencer they combined for -2.0.

I think it's fair to assume all other players will have an increased WAR in 2023

I would agree. I'm very excited about this team.

Looking at the returning youth...I have high expectations of improvement.
C - Heim (27) 127 G in 2022
1B - Lowe (26) 157 G
3B - Duran (23) 58 G
LF - Thompson (24) 55 G
CF - Taveras (23) 99 G
---------------

Getting rid of:
K Calhoun: 125G, .196, 12 HR (-1.5WAR)
Miller: 81G, .212, 7 HR (-1.6WAR)

The experience in SP is great, as well.
deGrom (34), Eovaldi (32), Heaney (31), Perez (31), Odorizzi (32), Gray (30)

You know you are getting. Just stay healthy.

Miller is still on the team and will likely play a bunch of left field.

LOL at MLB talking heads pimping the pitch clock for 28 minutes of shorter baseball….28 fewer minutes of baseball vs $400 to take fam of 4 to game is the reason baseball is suffering.

I think the good taxpayers of Arlington who bellied up to the bar while Dallas cowered in the corner would care a great deal.

I get what you're saying, but baseball is the only sport not governed by a time limit. So if you save 28 minutes a game you're still going to get 27 outs of baseball, it's just happening faster. Baseball is also easily the cheapest sport to go see by a wide margin.

If it costs you $400 to take your family to a game, that's on you.

I actually like the pitch clock. I do not like the slow play by pitcher or hitter.

One of the advantages, I suppose, of living out of state as long as I have is that the price of going to a game doesn't bother me. I so rarely get the opportunity to do so, much like Aggie football. I get to go to maybe one game a year at Kyle, and maybe one game a year to see the Rangers. It's always been an event to me.

Even when I was a kid, I never got to go to many games because I grew up in west TX. I started casually following the Rangers when I was 10 and they moved from Washington, and got hooked in the '74 season - that's when I started listening to the games on a little transistor radio. I didn't get to see a game in person until '76 - Gaylord Perry pitched. The next game I attended was in '77. It wasn't until the mid 80s before I got back to see a game (moved to TN in '82). That's about the time I bought one of those big ugly backyard satellite dishes, specifically to watch Rangers baseball and Aggie football when it was available.

It's still a big deal to me to come to a game. That's why I always shell out the $$$ for good seats when I have the opportunity to be there. I can absolutely understand how it is different if you live there and like to attend on the regular...it probably would be for me as well. But I do like the fact that every time I walk into a Rangers game, it means something to me, especially bringing my kids.

Saw where the new uniform agreement with Nike means teams are limited to 4 uniform jerseys (home, away, 2 alts) plus the special city connect jerseys to be debuted later this year.

Rangers have chosen to keep the powder blues and ditch the red jerseys.
When we win 65 games and DeGrom loses his arm, blame the proper reason...getting rid of the red and keeping the baby blue.

The best seasons we ever had was with the great red jersey with TEXAS on the front. The worst seasons we have ever had all involve those stupid baby blue uniforms. We deserve what we get from this....

I don't like the inconsistency in fonts on our jerseys. We have the old fashioned Texas-themed font on the blue/gray jerseys and the overly Walt Disney-looking script font on white/powder blues. They look like the jerseys of two separate teams. And I agree the red jerseys are great. Dumb if we're scrapping those.
