The recent naming of the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington to Globe Life Ballpark in Arlington, one would think, to be a harmless announcement, however not so. It seems, to be an opportunity for some to pillage.
Dallas' paper on Sunday, February 9th took this opportunity to make a case for Arlington's ballpark becoming obsolete in ten years. The story cited as an example, Atlanta's decision to build a new stadium to replace the current stadium. And why? Unable to make a case like the case being made in Atlanta that the MLB Braves play in an undesirable part of the city that is perceived as being unsafe and discourages development, the DMN based their case upon the fact that Texas is Hot and the Rangers should have a domed stadium. Eventually after such dubious bait came the hook. Laying the ground work for other Metroplex "cities" [read Dallas Farmer's Market] that may want to step in and rescue the Rangers from their misery. HA!
The first sign that you know that there is a predatory shark prowling the waters is when you see its dorsal fin!
"Vandergriff, Arlington and Rangers forever.
