Hamilton and Cruz in Frisco Tonight? Might Be a Good Time To Take in a RoughRiders Game.

John Blake just sent word: Josh Hamilton will return to the world of the baseball living tonight in Frisco, when he begins a rehab stint with the RoughRiders as Steve Buechele's second-place squad takes on the Midland Rockhounds. Hamilton, benched with a non-displaced hairline fracture of his right humerus bone since that damned head-first slide into home on April 12, will DH. Writes Blake, "Hamilton had a CT scan and was examined today by Rangers Team Physician Dr. Keith Meister. The CT scan indicated significant healing, and Dr. Meister cleared Hamilton to begin the rehab assignment tonight."

Hamilton's expected to play today and tomorrow. So too is Nelson Cruz, who's also rehabbing out in right field for Frisco after two games as DH. Plenty of good seats available for tonight's game -- just found three on the eighth row behind first base, for a grand total of, like, next to nothing.

Why gas it all the way to BFE Frisco, when you can RoughRide at home "for, like, nothing"? Party of three, anyone??

 Hey Robert ever thought about moving on over to the Sportatorium? It would be great to read your fine work over there instead of.........well you know.

Does "next to nothing" include a helicopter to get me up there from downtown in rush-hour traffic?

so people complain about driving to Arlington for games also want to complain about going to frisco for cheaper games, does it ever end?

As long as they keep building stadiums in dumb-ass locations, absolutely not.  I'm speaking of the big-league stadiums specifically. Can't really get worked up enough to care where the hell they build minor league ballparks.

 So because you chose to live in a city that doesnt have a pro baseball stadium and refused to build a pro football stadium, these other locations are dumb ass?

Reason I didn't mention Leonys Martin is because he's day to day.

I did call to see if he was playing tonight, but was told Buechele doesn't post lineups till 'round 5. So I didn't wanna get anyone's hopes up.
