The Texas Rangers had a day off in New York on Monday before their series began with the Yankees, and pitcher Derek Holland tried to make the most of it. On Monday night at around 5:00 p.m. EST, Holland tweeted that he was heading off the the Counting Crows concert.
The Crows were playing a show at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, New Jersey, so the left-hander decided to check it out.
It did not go well.
At around 10:30 p.m. Holland began ranting about how he had been kicked out of the concert.
It sounds like Holland was getting a bit too rowdy for the band and was asked to leave. We don’t really know what happened other than what he says, but many concerts strictly prohibit the audience from taking pictures. Perhaps that was the case in New Jersey. In any event, Holland no longer likes the state.
Again, we don’t know the details of what happened and Holland has since deleted the tweets. All we know is that videobombs like this and cars like this have shown us Holland loves to have a good time, which was apparently not cool with security at the Counting Crows concert. It doesn’t sound like this guy will be signing with the Mets or Yankees at any point in the future.
The Texas Rangers are in New York for a series against the Yankees, and starting pitcher Derek Holland participated in some off-day activities that did not go as planned:
Off to enjoy a sweet lol concert of the counting crows. Should be a good time

Last year when the Rangers made the trip to New York, Holland and then teammate Ryan Dempster did Harry Caray impersonations at the Fan Cave.

Holland and Justin Grimm donned outfits from "Dumb and Dumber...
Rangers Elvis Andrus has been having fun on the field trying to get under Adrian Beltre's skin on a near-constant basis this season from trying touch the third basemen's head (something Beltre can't stand) to attempting to get in the way of a routine play.
Well now, Beltre finally got his chance to turn the tables on Andrus for once.
During the ninth inning of Saturday...
The Texas Rangers had reportedly been in the market for a right-handed-hitting outfielder since the start of the season, and this was obviously before Craig Gentry -- who had been filling that role for the team -- went down with his hand injury. Gentry is expected to miss at least a month with his non-displaced fracture, and this is only expected to intensify Texas' search,...
It's amazing the difference seven days can make in a 162-game baseball season. The Rangers appeared to be falling to the wayside as a playoff contender after dropping six straight games to the Indians and Blue Jays.
In fact, it was the Rangers who helped jump-start the Blue Jays' 11-game winning streak that was finally snapped by the Rays on Monday. But the Rangers managed...
The Texas Rangers have placed outfielder Craig Gentry on the
disabled list with a non-displaced fracture in his left hand. While he’ll hit
the 15-day DL, the Rangers don’t expect to have Gentry back for at least
another month as a result of his hand injury, according to T.R. Sullivan of
Gentry suffered the injury Tuesday when he was hit on the hand
Yu Darvish (7-3, 2.84 ERA) pitches for the first time in the Bronx with the Rangers in town to take on Hiroki Kuroda (7-5, 2.78 ERA) and the Bombers.

After Darvish went 8-1 in his first nine outings, the...

Rangers rookie Justin Grimm pitched just well enough to beat Andy Pettitte, and the AL West leaders won for the seventh time in nine games following a six-game slide -- their longest of the...

Yu Darvish and the Texas Rangers won a memorable duel when he squared off with Hiroki Kuroda and the New York Yankees for the first time.
More than a year later in the rematch - the 11th matchup between Japanese starting pitchers in major league history - it's Darvish trying to put the brakes on the longest winless stretch of his career Tuesday night in New York.
The rubber match falls on Phil Hughes (3-6, 5.09 ERA) in the afternoon game against Derek Holland (5-4, 3.43 ERA) and the Rangers. Hughes is on extended rest, coming off seven days since his previous start, against the Dodgers. He struggled in that outing, allowing five runs on 10 hits over six innings in the 6-0 loss.
