After Ian Kinsler’s unfortunate interview went public this morning, another former Ranger reached out to him:
Not any fun being in the Texas doghouse, is it @IKinsler3?
Hamilton, you’ll recall, drew the ire of Rangers fans after he said Dallas is not a baseball town. He was right about that, but jeez, he should’ve known that wasn’t going to go over.
I dunno. Maybe the best course here is to just avoid being in the doghouse by not saying stuff that you know, or should know, is going to draw the ire of the Rangers, their fans and the media.
As it stands, Kinsler said earlier today that his comments were “taken out of context” so maybe he didn’t mean to be in the Rangers’ doghouse. Maybe we all just missed the subtle nuance of the word “sleazeball.” It’s a delicate and complicated concept that I’m sure he meant in a nice way as opposed to disparage. Just missing, you know, that important context.
