I guess we can agree to disagree. Imo a true fan would never, ever root for a divisional rival. It'd be heresy if a Giants fan rooted for the Dodgers, or if the Cardinals cheered for the Cubs. Or, "gasp", if the Red Sox cheered for the Yankees. I have been a die hard Rangers fan since the Kevin Millwood, Hank Blalock, Mark Teixeira and Akinori Otsuka days, and I will never root for the Astros. It was different when they were a NL team though.smalltown":37zkby06 said:There are plenty of real baseball fans in Texas. I'm a ranger fan all the way. I like the astros ok but definitely not my top team but I will support them in the world series everytime simply because they are a Texas team.

Then we went to watch him pitch his first game for the Rangers. He was good!!!
