Rangers sign fourth-round pick

The Rangers announced on Thursday they signed their fourth-round pick, Andrew Doyle from the University of Oklahoma. Doyle was the Sooners’ Friday night starter, a role reserved for the best pitcher on the college staff. He led Oklahoma in innings pitched the last two seasons.

This year, Doyle posted 92 innings, which ranked him seventh in the Big 12.

He was drafted in the 39th round of the 2006 First-Year Player Draft by the Nationals. Doyle’s four-seam fastball sits around 95 mph, and he also throws a two-seamer that sinks, a good slider and a changeup.

He is 6-3 and weighs 210 pounds.

I just read an article that says Tom Hicks can’t make payroll and he won’t be running the team much longer. It said MLB has given $15 million so far to keep the team running.
1. Is that true?

If so, isn’t that a kick in the pants. He shredded this organization and helped it get mired in a 10 year losing drought. Then, just when it looks like he’s made some good moves and gotten things back on track, this comes up. Quick! Somebody bail us out…..and I’m not referring to the federal government! Nolan Ryan, can’t you put a posse together and ride to the rescue? Please?

If that report is not true, I humbly apologize. But, it’s not like we haven’t seen this coming.
