Kozlowski on Kozlowski 

Former Ranger pitching prospect Ben Kozlowski says that he's back to 100%, after T-J surgery in 2003 and an arthroscopic procedure in October to clean out his elbow.

From the Cincy Enquirer..."The theory is two years after surgery pitchers are usually 100 percent," Kozlowski said. "So I would like to think this would be my year."

Waiving Kozlowski is going to come back to bite the Rangers...

I wonder if you're aware of the fact that every one of your entries is somehow negatively flavored regarding Rangers management? It would appear that each entry comes to rest on one or another piece of subjective interpretation to frame Rangers management in a negative light. This is just one man's opinion, but it's distracting and takes some of the shine off an otherwise good job of reporting.
 
I disagree. I appreciate that Adam writes this blog without a sense or need to be a homer. The fact is, a lot of us fans are not happy with the way management has handled this team the last 13 months or so. It has all been masked by a surprising season that is mostly because some of the team's younger players are beginning to put it together. Of course, this off season, nothing was done to build on that and it is disappointing to see.

From what I can tell, and I've read what Adam has had to say on the ESPN Texas Rangers board and now this blog for about four years or more now, Adam would probably be happier than any of us if the Rangers finally pulled a miracle and won this thing. I think what a lot of people have failed to see, probably because they were not on the ESPN board, is the fact that back in the 2000-2003 seasons Adam cheered on this team everyday no matter the fact it was an expensive rebuilding project, and a consistent loser. Now, since the pieces to build on are in place, it is frustrating to stand by and see the moves or non-moves of the club.

I don't find it distracting I find it refreshing that while he is a die-hard he doesn't have his head buried in the sand. He isn't just saying "Well, they are management, that means they have to know what is best." It is an opinion that I think many people have but are afraid to voice because they will be labeled a bandwagoner. I see it more as really, really wanting the Rangers to succeed but seeing things realistically. If the management of the Texas Rangers are not doing everything they can to make it a winning ballclub, I would be offended if I were not allowed to take them to task.
 
No question, I'm very down on Ranger management right now. I have been for about the last 18 months.

As megablogger said, a whole lot of this stems from what I think has been an exceeding poor job of surrounding a solid group of young players with the talent they need to succeed.

I am a passionate fan. There are few things that would make me happier than seeing the Rangers win the World Series. I'm not rooting for the team to fail because I'm angry with management.

But at the same time, I'm going to call out Tom Hicks for being a liar, I'm going to call out John Hart for having done a lousy job as the G.M. since he got here, and I'm going to call out the whole front office for having done nothing to improve the team this offseason.

That said, I imagine there will be less of an anti-management tinge to my posts once we get closer to Opening Day. Right now, though, the main thing to talk about is the offseason, and the moves (or lack thereof) that management has made.
