20 years without postseason play, a 19-game losing streak, blunder after blunder after blunder, horrible decisions on the part of upper management year after year...and yet I remain a Royals fan.
But something happened today for the first time ever. I actually considered giving up on the team permanently. Just when I think they've done everything they can to lose...they find new ways. They make it harder and harder to be a Royals fan.
I'm *this* close to saying "**** 'em".
I feel your pain John. I haven't quite gotten to that point of giving up on the Rangers, but a series of non-trades and sub par off seasons really has me wondering what the **** Tom Hicks is trying to do with the team. He picks up Phil Nevin at the trade deadline, and trades away a pitcher...while the Rangers still has some chance to get the wildcard. Then instead of sending Nevin packing, he hangs on to him. I first thought because of that trade, Nevin would go to Boston (who claimed earlier to need a bat), in exchange for Bronson Arroyo. (I believe I heard that rumor somewhere.)
Then a two weeks ago, Hicks tells the media he is giving up for the season and the Rangers proceed to go on a 1-12 road trip.
I truly feel your pain John.
