Season, tenures winding down.

So the season is winding down. So apparently is Hank Blalock's time in Texas. Hank, pictured here on his 2001 Royal Rookies Futures auto card #7, has been with the Rangers for ten years. They are the only team he has played with. This off-season he will file for free agency. The club is not planning on re-signing him. Gonna miss The Hammer. It will be interesting to see where he lands. I do hope he does well wherever he ends up.

Nice to see the Rangers trounce the Angels tonight 11-3. The game has no bearing on who goes to the post-season and who goes home but it is good to see the team end the season against the Halos on a high note.

I can't imagine Hank anywhere other than with the Rangers... Those cards still make me laugh, though. I know Royal Rookies went under years ago, but every time someone posts a card photo that I took for that set, it makes me want the money they owe me!

I was glad to see them jump on Lackey early, but it doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. It was just nice to see they are still trying. They made this season matter for a long time and for that I'm happy. I'm ready for Spring Training already!

Hey Troll, I had no idea you were once a photographer for Royal Rookies. Sounds like a cool job, so long as the paycheck kept coming.

I agree Brian, spring can't get here soon enough.
