    They seriously asked for Holland? Do they think Ned Colletti is calling the shots in Texas or something?

    The end. Cut to black. Audience goes ****ing ape****.

    • Koji is actually better than Heath Bell and under control for an extra year, so the Rangers are better off.

              • There really were A's fans who were pissed at the deal of Harden for Anderson + PTBNL. And now they got their wish. The deal has been nixed.

                Oldie but a goodie.

                    Are you sure Harden didn't just die on the way to Boston?

                      Yeah, they asked according to this:

                      "Rangers left-hander Derek Holland pitched a four-hitter in a 3-0 win over the Blue Jays for his fourth shutout in his last 11 starts.

                      He matched Cliff Lee for the major league lead with four shutouts this season, and he has as many shutouts in two months as possible Hall of Famer Andy Pettitte did in 16 seasons.

                      Even with all of his recent success, Holland has a 4.14 ERA for the season. He’s allowed five earned runs or more in seven of his 22 starts.

                      Still, today’s performance should make him pretty close to untouchable in trade discussions (the Padres have asked for him in the Heath Bell talks). Holland is just 24, and he has the stuff to shut down any offense when he’s on. His inconsistency is a concern, but he’s someone the Rangers are likely to need if they’re going to make another deep run into the postseason."

                        There seems to be a bunch of nostalgic A's fans who still see Harden the way he used to be. We have tons of pitching and Harden isn't that good. I know Anderson is no longer the prospect he once was but I was excited that someone was actually giving us something that wasn't complete garbage for Harden. Damn, I wanted that deal to happen.

                        • Check the sig.
                          The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

                          • I know Neal sucks but we could have used him to get a decent vet catcher.

                            Whiteside and Stewart are complete garbage.

                            • Wow. Harden seemed like a great move for both sides. Swap reclamation projects, reunite Harden with the guy who got the most out of him in Curt Young. For what it's worth, Anderson has shown signs of life lately at the dish. Don't think he'll ever be more than average at this point, but it's worth taking a shot at the very least.


                              Speier is reporting that the deal isn't totally dead, but it's not a sure thing to go through anymore.
