ARLINGTON, Texas Texas Rangers veteran pitcher Roy Oswalt joked to Robbie Ross that the rookie lefty had made the big time. Maybe if the big time involves an expanded waistline. The organization that's responsible for introducing ballpark nachos to the country in the 1970s has taken things up a notch with the unveiling of the Totally Rossome nachos, with the name a tip of the cap to Ross. Like everything in Texas, these nachos are bigger. They are served in a pink replica Texas batting helmet. The helmet is filled with tortilla chips that are topped with queso blanco, pico de gallo and a choice of either beef, pulled pork or pulled chicken. If that wasn't enough, good old nacho-cheese flavored Doritos top off the nachos. Ross had no idea that the nachos were coming until this week. Unfortunately for him, he doesn't get a cut of the new 16 monstrosity. Super-sizing concessions has become a big thing at Rangers Ballpark, where the club is on its way to setting a new single season attendance record. Last year the park unveiled a three-pound pretzel that comes with an array of dipping sauces. The big splash this year was made by the Boomstick, a two-foot long hot dog that was introduced on Opening Day. The dog, named in honor of outfielder Nelson Cruz, comes with a sticker price of 26 and has become a ballpark favorite. Last month the Great Bratbino, a bratwurst version of the Boomstick named for Josh Hamilton, made its debut.
