What is a Texas tux?

User Avatar
Texas Tux is tuxedo worn with jeans, cowboy boots, and cowboy hat. Often the cummerbund is replaced with a large belt buckle as well. Hence, only the tux shirt, jacket, and bow-tie remain from the original tuxedo.

Does Antonio Alfonseca really have six fingers on his hands?

User Avatar
Antonio Alfonseca, former pitcher in the Texas Rangers organization, has six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot. His nickname is "El Pulpo" ("the octopus"). Alfonseca claims that several of his family members have the same trait. The extra finger provides no advantage in pitching as it never touches the baseball.

What does it mean when the Texas rangers interlock their fingers?

User Avatar
So in 2011 the Texas Rangers have apparently come up with a new hand gesture (shown above). I've been scouring the interwebs to figure out what it may be called or mean; however, I'm not having much luck. I've heard rumors that Ranger players are not yet ready to unveil it's name; however, you can't believe everything you read on the web. Perhaps it is something dreamed up by the Rangers marketing team to start selling more merchandise seeing how wildly popular the "claw" and "antlers" have become? I have seen several posts calling this "the cobra"; however, I have also seen posts refuting this claim stating that Michael Young actually spoke out and denied that it is the "cobra". ***UPDATE*** So, according to an article in the Dallas Morning News, the sign is indeed called the "Sitting Duck". Apparently it was a bit of an inside joke that started in the clubhouse and involved ex-Rangers infielder Hank Blalock. For some reason, Rangers players still won't explain exactly what it means, yet fans are still embracing it. MLB.com is now selling a shirt entitled "Ducks on the Pond" with the hand gesture; however, it doesn't make sense to me that the hand sign simply means bases loaded considering the Rangers do it every time they get a hit.... In addition, the Rangers couple the sitting duck with a second gesture where they essentially interlock their fingers...no idea what is going on there.

How do the Texas Rangers plan on improving their starting rotation?

User Avatar
You will have to give it time. They got McCarthy and Harrison in rotation now and they have Holland in the bullpen, he will be starting by atleast by next year. They also have Neftali Feliz throwing 96-98 and hes just 20 in AAA. Plus Thomas Diamond and Tommy Hunter who both pitched in the majors a little last year. And I'm betting on Ben Sheets signing with us next year.
Asked in Texas Rangers, Baseball History, World Series

What teams have never been to the World Series?

User Avatar
As of the 2010 season: Among currently active MLB teams: Washington Nationals*/Montreal Expos Seattle Mariners * There have been two MLB teams that have gone by the name "Washington Nationals". The first one began play in 1901 and was, at different times, and by different people, called both the "Nationals" and the "Senators". It is pointless to say what their "official" name was because back then, team nicknames were, well, just nicknames. At any rate, this team called Washington, DC home from 1901 to 1960, and they DID participate in 3 World Series, winning one. After the 1960 season, they left DC and became the Minnesota Twins, and have participated in 3 more World Series since, winning two of them.? When the team left in 1960, MLB had an expansion the next year, and the NEW Washington Senators came into being. This team is separate and distinct from the OLD Washington Senators/Nationals. But after just 11 seasons in DC, this team too moved, this time to Texas, where they became the Rangers, and finally, in their 50th season, reached the World Series in 2010. The Montreal Expos began play in 1969, and called Montreal home through the 2004 season. In 2005, they moved to Washington, DC and changed their name to the "Nationals". They never made it to the World Series from either location, and in fact never won a FULL season divisional race (they won the second half of the 1981 season National League, East Division race). 1994 was a promising year for them, until the season was cut short by a player's strike. Again, though, this is NOT the same team as the team that played in Washington from 1901 to 1960 and, occasionally, called themselves the Nationals.
