I’ve been on assignment with the Texas Rangers are spring training in Surprise, Arizona.
This complex is pretty nice. They share it with the Royals.
A few things you should know:
- People drive golf carts here like cars. They drive the carts in the road like cars. They have Arizona license plates. They even have parking spaces reserved for golf cart parking.
- Seniors rule. This town is run by older Americans and if you wanna eat breakfast or lunch, go later. The Seniors get their eat on early in this town.
- The houses are built way too close to each other and cost a lot more than what you’d pay to live in Texas.
My eyes tell me the Rangers are not going to be a team that wins the AL West. I just don’t think they have the starting pitching. I’m just not sold on the rotation of Kevin Millwood, Vincente Padilla, Jason Jennings, Brandon McCarty and Kason Gabbard.
The starters must find a way to stay healthy and the defense has to improve if this club is going to make any kind of noise.
Baseball players have easy in the spring. Pitchers were working out running at 8AM and done for the day by 11:30AM.
