Lest there are others of you who thought this morning’s visual was in reference to Max Ramirez’s game last night, it was not.
The first three images were callbacks to my June 14, 18, and 20 reports about our AAA first baseman.
The “Braveheart” image refers to the Rangers’ newest big league first baseman.
It’s the same guy.
One day, Elizardo Ramirez and Drew Meyer and Nelson Cruz will be able to tell their grandkids about the crazy, scheduled, back-to-back off-days they had as Oklahoma RedHawks in late June 2008.
But, according to multiple overnight media reports, Chris Davis won’t.
He’s been stripped of the second of those off-days, instructed to get on a plane to Houston, where he will reunite with former teammates Scott Feldman, Brandon Boggs, Luis Mendoza, German Duran, Doug Mathis, and Eric Hurley, not to mention Ramirez, with whom he formed the most feared power duo in the minor leagues not too long ago.
It’s an exciting time to be a Rangers fan.
