Chris Ray

When he has that movement on his pitches he looks very good...then he let a curve ball hang to Matt for a hard base hit.

I thought he would be our closer for at least the next 5 years after his very good rookie year. Hopefully he is getting his stuff back in Texas. Hunter mentioned he looks a like he lost a little weight.

I really wish we had hit a HR off of him so I could watch him point to the sky as it sailed over the fence. I've always wondered if that is as enjoyable to watch for the benefiting fan as it is infuriating to watch for the victimized fan.

Chris Ray is a very solid reliever. He was obviously not 100 percent right last season. He's not really a guy suited to closing games or coming in for high-leverage situations, but he's a steady guy to run out in the 7th or 8th inning. He will give up a home run here and there and he will lose his command at times, but at the end of the season he will provide value out of the pen.

Hard to believe he's already 28.

Before this thread gets filled with ignorant comments, I would like to say that I have watched almost ever Rangers game this season and Ray has been filthy. He looks like a completely different pitcher from last year as it appears that now he has fully come back from the surgery. Also, I'd like to add that he has been up around 98 at times this season, so contrary to Palmer's statements, he has not lost all velocity.

When even the Orioles anemic offense at the bottom of their order no less, tied the game off Ray, it just made me thank our lucky stars he can now suck wind for someone else!:laughlol: In short, he's a thrower not a pitcher.

This is a great example of the ignorant comments that I was anticipating.

What part of it is ignorant when it is totally the truth?:scratchchinhmm: Open your eyes-Ray damn near blew the game for the Rangers just like he specialized in with the Orioles, and it was to the bottom of the Orioles anemic lineup no less! True or False? What are you, a relative of his or something?:confused:

Now, he finds himself in a setup role for the Rangers and it looks like a good fit for the 28-year old reliever.

"It's great. I love the team," he said last week. "I love playing here and in Texas. Most of all, I love playing for a first-place team. I wanted to have an impact on the game. I wanted to be a guy to go out there and pitch some meaningful innings instead of going out there and pitching the ninth in a 10-run ballgame. So far it's been working well for me."

Texas has put him in the setup role and he has done well. Also likes the pitching coach.

Coming to Texas not only meant a change of scenery, but it also gave him the chance to work with Ranger pitching coach Mike Maddux.

"It's good. He's been really positive," Ray said. "He knows the game real well and has instilled some good principles in us. I just try to take that on the mound with me."

This comment is great. Good for Chris to make sure he sticks it right back at them. He's a good kid who I wish all the best. Both teams currently are benefiting from this trade....only if Millwood would actually win a game.
