    That's what my brother should have said. He still called me his little brother though. I thought it was funny.

    Awesome. The Rangers have a triple A club here in OKC. You'll have to let me know if he ends up playing for them.

    Thanks man, he's really pumped about this opportunity. He's been DH for the last 3 games.

    The Rangers were talking about sending him to Winter league in Hawaii after he gets out of Cuba. Cause the minor league season is over.
