Ding-dong the witch is gone: After my three and a half year boycott of my favorite baseball team I can finally buy a new cap and take my wife to a game again.

Did you also boycott them when W was in charge?

Can this team ever get, like, 2-3 arms? Their offense is freaking dynamite. The Rangers should trade Mensch and Soriano this offseason in an attempt to get some pitching. I bet the offense still doesn't skip much of a beat. Yeah but who has too much pitching, and can afford to trade good pitching for bats? Right - no one. Tough one there.

Actually, the Blue Jays have quite a bit of young pitching and Mensch would be a pretty good fit. I'd love to get Soriano, but we're already flushed with second baseman ... although ... Rangers: Mensch and Soriano Blue Jays: Lilly, Hudson and Gustavo Chacin, plus a first-rounder. Sound doable?

I'd do it. Not sure if J.P. would. Lilly, Hudson and Spier/League would be better.

I'd love to see the Yankees get Soriano back and make him a centerfielder. Not as wierd as it sounds. It worked with such Yankee infielders as Mickey Mantle, Bobby Mercer and Tom Tresh. Unfortunately, they ain't got no pitchers to spare.

i don't know if i want soriano back. i would love to see jeter go to center (he's got the arm for it and he tracks fly balls well), move a-rod back to short and pick up a third baseman. but that will never happen.

What happened in the middle of Hart's first year with the Rangers that made you boycott the team? I've been a Rangers fan since the Brad Short days of my childhood. I would think that any fans who could have been driven off by management stupidity would have been gone long before Hart's reign of error.

The first player he brought in...Chan Ho Park The first player he let go....Pudge I didn't boycott the Rangers when W was in charge, but I did vote for Ann Richards

Soriano would be a good fit with the Giants, we'd trade the Rangers some decent talent for him too.
