Hey, Leonys.
Brad Newton
Welcome to the Rangers. Excited about this.
Brad Newton
Yeah, Major League Baseball is a whole different ballgame. No doubt.
Brad Newton
Yep, the pitching was solid yesterday, the hitting, the defense.
Brad Newton
Well, no, that game didn't count.

I mean, it was a real game. But it didn't count.

Well, no, Texas is off today. Right, right, Oakland is off, too.

No, you're right - Boston and the Angels waited the rain out for two hours and 35 minutes last week and played 13 innings and finished at 2:45 in the morning. Yeah, yeah, that was a night game. And, no, that's right, neither team was off the next day. They had to play again. At 1:35 in the afternoon. Don't worry about that.

Brad Newton
No, I'm not sure where else the umpiring crew needed to be.
Brad Newton
Why were the A's players smiling and the Rangers fuming when the game ended with the score Texas 7, Oakland 0, you ask? No, the scoreboard was correct. No, no, you want to score more than the other team here in the Major Leagues, too. Same rules.
Tony Gutierrez/AP
Welp, anyway, good luck in Frisco tonight. Remember: Try to score more runs than the Hooks score.
