English is a second language for him, assuming spoken and written, so his handwriting makes sense...

He has done an amazing job learning English in his short time here. He gets a ton of credit for that, not everyone puts in that effort.

This. I am shocked their is not more attention being brought to the fact that they lost a 13 game lead to Oakland, and then had their offense shut down by Joe Saunders.

For such a high price his stuff goes for Yu aint much to talk about. He is a good pitcher, not a great pitcher.

Rangers fell apart big time. Had i not been a yanks fan I would of put them in the big show this year.

At least bryce still has a shot at making it.

Man, don't come at me like that. So I'm assuming you or the person who wanted to slap me is the brat that ran to the mods instead of taking me on directly?
