Harang goes off (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=220525111)

Aaron Harang, a pitcher that the Rangers traded to the A's in the Randy Velarde trade two years ago, made his major league debut today. Predictably, he tossed 3 hit ball over 7 innings and had 10 strikeouts. Yet another Ranger trade gone bad.

To make matters worse...he threw over 70% strikes.

Well, had he pitched for Texas, he would have sucked. Such is the rule. I quote myself from an email to one of my friends, on Opening Day:

"You could take Cy Young and Walter Johnson, in their prime. Give them a blue hat with a T on the front, and they would suck."

It's the damn truth. We're cursed, and we are always going to suck. I suppose with the 'Boys being the Yankees of the NFL (In a good way!) and the Mavs finally coming on again, we deserve to have an eternally crappy baseball team.

edit: Another nugget of wisdom from watching the April Rangers:

"There is just a culture of suck when it comes to rangers pitchers."

Harang does it again..hammers the Astros in interleague. Thanks Doug Melvin.

Crap. (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=220608111)

Harang (2-1) allowed six hits over 6 1-3 scoreless innings, lowering his ERA to 0.93. He walked four and struck out two.

A lot of people bitched about including Harang back in the Velarde trade. Velarde did a good job for the Rangers so it's a tough call...but it sucks that he isn't getting this kind of results for the Rangers. Man I wish Burba was gone!
