Good morning. Football is officially dead. Long live baseball.

T.R. Sullivan writes that North Texas is ready to focus on baseball after football turned back into a pumpkin this weekend.

However, for those ready to focus on the RangersJay Jaffe gives Texas a big smelly, potentially generous, D grade for an "uninspiring" offseason that has been headlined by the acquisition of Ross Detwiler and prayers.

No. 8 on Evan Grant's Top 15 Rangers prospects list is Luke Jackson who enters a critical year which could see him end up in the bullpen if he doesn't develop as a starter.

Speaking of EG, he's holding a chat today at 3 p.m. at the DMN. You can go ask him about that D grade Sports Illustrated gave the Rangers or why his newspaper still employs Gerry Fraley.

The Question of the Week over at Lone Star Ball Facebook asked for a surprise prediction for a Ranger in 2015. Folks thought Derek Holland will take a step forward, Elvis will re-enter the building, and Yu Darvish will become Spider-Man.

Lastly, remember red-faced Tommy Hunter seemingly only winning baseball games because Josh Hamilton would hit a billion home runs in his starts as a Ranger? Well, he's going to make $4.65 million dollars next year. You and everyone you know will not accrue $4.65 million dollars combined in your lifetime.
