The Famous "Green Box"

What's a green box and why is it so famous? Well, just like a baseball dugout, that's where the stories are told. The "Green Box" appeared on the Baseball Historian web site during our inception back in 1999 and has been holding kangaroo court ever since. Enjoy the stories...

Texas Rangers (Year 2000) New Century
April 3, 2000 - Internet News Services -

1999- 1st place - AL West - 95-67 Record, lost in first round of the playoffs.

2000 Forecast - 2nd Place - AL West, wild-card winners.

Starting Rotation: Kenny Rogers LH, Rick Heiling RH, Darren Oliver LH, Esteban Loaiza RH, and Mark Clark RH.

Meat of the Batting Order - 3-4-5 Hitters - Ivan Rodriguez, Rafeal Palmerio, and Ruben Mateo.

Bullpen Ace - John Wetteland

Outlook For 2000 - The Texas Rangers have improved their pitching staff with the additions of starters Kenny Rogers and Darren Oliver. The loss of power-hitting Juan Gonzalez and leadoff man Mark Lemore are big team negatives.

The Rangers possess one of baseball's best bullpen, Wetteland, F. Cordero, Mike Venafro, Matt Perisho, Jeff Zimmerman, Mike Munoz, and Tim Crabtree. Left-hander J. Thompson will start the season on the DL.

The Rangers are counting on Gabe Kapler, the 1999 Minor League Player Of the Year, rookie 3rd baseman Tom Evans and center-fielder Ruben Mateo to put up big numbers in 2000. Ivan Rodriguez, everyone's All-Star catcher, could capture his' second MVP award in a row.
