The three most important things about last night

Welcome to Texas. 

1. Adrian Beltre - My wife is a funny person when it comes to judgements on players. Early on last night, Beltre had a hotshot get by him at third and rattle around in the corner for a double. He didn't even make an effort to go after it. Now, whether the ball wouldn't have been attainable even if he had tried to dive for it is a moot point now obviously, but it drew the ire of her (and me too a little) for the lack of effort on the play.

A little bit later, when came to bat with the sacks loaded and two outs, I turned to her and said "This is either going to make you love him or hate him for the rest of the season."

End result? Adulation.

2. Mason Tobin - He was shaky. There was a reason why he came into the game when it was 12-3.

3. That new videoboard - I have never seen anything so beautiful in my life.

  1. Beltre was emmulating Michael Young on that play at 3rd. Turn and look.
