There are inauspicious debuts and there are absolute, abject failures. My first foray into daily baseball picks yesterday was clearly the latter, at least based on results.
You know what they say about best laid plans, and so do I: they sometimes go awry.

Fantasy Baseball Daily Picks Philosophy
In fantasy baseball a poor ending does not necessarily indict the means. This is a sport, after all, in which the best hitters fail seven out of ten times. Those who succeed have a plan, stick to it, trust it, and find success over time.
Similarly, some fantasy baseball decisions will work out but others will not. The key is to have a well-reasoned and logical plan, trust it, stick with it, and allow it to work out over time.
I say all this to let you know that I will not be deterred by one golden sombrero, which woul...

Mike Napoli was out of the Texas Rangers starting lineup Wednesday night, but not because the catcher was hit on his helmet with a pitch the previous game.
Napoli said he was fine Wednesday. Manager Ron Washington said the reason Napoli wasn't in the lineup was because it was Yorvit Torrealba's turn to catch, and that Napoli was available to play.
Even after getting hit...
Our fascination with Texas Rangers fans became a ‘thing’ tonight here at BC HQ. A Fox cameraman was acting as if he was interested in what this kid was playing with on the Rangers dugout, but we know his real intention was to show off this Rangers mom rack. Some of the best racks in Major League baseball and the perfect weather throughout the year to show off those masterpieces...

Neftali Feliz pitched seven crisp innings in his first major league start and the Texas Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners 1-0 on Tuesday night.
Feliz allowed four hits, struck out four and walked two in his first game since the former closer failed to hold a two-run lead in Game 6 of the World Series. The Cardinals won in seven games.
This time, Feliz watched the bullpen close...
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Michael Young hit a two-run homer and had four RBIs to back Derek Holland, leading the Texas Rangers over the Seattle Mariners 5-3 Thursday.
Young put Texas ahead with an RBI single. Then with the Rangers leading 1-0 in the fifth inning for the third straight game, Young hit an opposite-field homer into the first row in right for a 3-0 lead against Jason...
I forgot to mention today’s good news in my game post, but this is probably worthy of it’s own entry anyway.
IAN KINSLER IS A RANGER FOR FIVE MORE YEARS!
Yes, that deserves all caps. Because I was definitely shouting it in my head.
News of the extension began making its way around the interwebs on Monday night. Five years for $75 million. The contract begins in 2013, with...
Neftali Feliz pitched seven shutout innings in his first major league start as the Texas Rangers held on to a 1-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners.

As you know, I love fantasy baseball.
In fact, I find it to be at least ten times more fun and challenging than fantasy football.

In my experience, the roster and lineup management cream usually rises to the top more...
Since opening two years ago, Target Field has been a house of misery for the Texas Rangers.
While they appear to have the right man taking the mound to pick up a rare win there, their offense may be the bigger concern in Minnesota.
Scheduled starter Matt Harrison tries to lead the Rangers to their second victory at Target Field in Friday night's series opener against the Twins...
These guys need to chill the eff out.
