Ranger Observations

As I had the Ranger game on in the background, I just saw two very odd things: (1) Ranger pitcher R.A. Dickey was pulled in the fourth inning after giving up SIX home runs (that's what happens when a knuckle ball doesn't knuckle). (2) He was replaced by some first time major league pitcher Fabio Castro. Fabio (I wish I had that name) is 5'7" and 160 pounds. I've never seen a pitcher that small. And get this: He was born in 1985.

I was at the game, in the section where all the homeruns were hit. I felt like I was in London during WWII.

May not come as a big surprise, but RA has been sent back to the minors. Some really old people like me remember Whitey Ford who was of similar stature to Fabio. However, I wouldn't continue the comarison beyond that.
