    I believe he does that when rounding 3rd for every home run. Good stuff indeed.

We are not prepared to do that for our organization at this point. I feel like we've got a young team that's going to be here for a while. We don't have any windows closing. We're just getting into our window, if you want to call it that, and we want to keep it open for as long as possible and have as many shots to go to the playoffs as possible."

    We don't have any windows closing . . . .

    Colby Rasmus, to the same reporters on the same day: "That shows that [the Rangers are] wanting to go out and better their team. They've already beaten us with what they had. I don't doubt . . . that we can beat them on a given day. But that does show something that they're going out and doing that."

    They're wanting to go out and better their team . . . .

    Carlos Beltran, on being traded to Texas on Monday: "The feeling is that I've got to go there and help. Help as much as I can. . . . It's fun, honestly. . . . Every game that you play is a meaningful game and you try to continue to win ballgames and increase that lead."

    Win . . . .

    Jonathan Lucroy, as part of his lengthy and awesome comments to ESPN about his own trade to the Rangers: "Texas made a sacrifice to bring me in. They gave up some good prospects. By making that sacrifice, they're telling me they need me here to win.

    "When a player's on a team, wherever it is, you want to have that wanted and needed feeling. It makes you feel like you're part of something. We aren't in the playoffs yet, but we have all the pieces. I'm already falling in love with this roster. We have two players in our lineup who are Hall of Fame guys: Adrian Beltre and Carlos Beltran. Those two dudes are unbelievable. I'm honored to play with them, and I know I'm going to be a better baseball player being around them. I've only played on the road for Texas, but I can't wait to play a home game.

    "When I step to the plate there, I'm going to take it all in. I'm going to take all of this in. I know I had nothing to do with the Rangers getting to where they are now, but I want to have a lot to do with finishing the job."

    Yeah, so, all of that . . . .

    In the five games Texas has played since the Beltran and Lucroy/Jeremy Jeffress trades, the Rangers have scored only 11 runs.

    Beltran and Lucroy have driven in seven of them.

    Seven of 11.

    Those two are hitting .324/.343/.765 in 35 trips to the plate, with four homers.

    Last night: 5 for 8, with two Lucroy homers and, together, all three runs driven in to pace the Rangers' 3-2 win over Houston not to mention the beast work Lucroy did blocking and framing and throwing all night, in a game in which 15 Astros reached base and 13 hitters stepped in with runners in scoring position.

    And for good measure, Jeffress threw the biggest inning of the night, punching out Alex Bregman and Jose Altuve and getting Carlos Correa to roll out to second in the bottom of the seventh inning, nursing a 2-1 lead.

    Texas 3, Houston 2 shouldn't bother the Astros, though or at least their GM since neither the loss nor the club's trade deadline inactivity does anything, evidently, to endanger keeping their window "open for as long as possible and hav[ing] as many shots to go to the playoffs as possible."

    As long as you're comfy kicking the can, wholly indifferent to the fact that your window's actually already open.
    Yes, I hate the Rangers. But as long as Lucroy is behind the plate, I will watch them.

    Default Lucroy gives a helping hand (or house) to an old coach

    Thought this one was pretty good, and not a surprise to Cajun fans.

    'We didn't think twice about it': How Rangers' Jonathan Lucroy helped a former college coach during Louisiana floods

    By Evan Grant , Staff Writer

    CINCINNATI -- Typical of any player new in town, Jonathan Lucroy spent his first few days with the Rangers working on housing arrangements.
    Typical of Lucroy, it had nothing to do with him.
    Instead, Lucroy capped off a crazy 10-day stretch by pushing back from a video scouting session in Arlington to pick up the phone, call his wife, Sarah, and together they quickly decided to offer up their home in Lafayette, La., to a former college baseball coach who had been displaced by historic flooding.

    "This is not just a place for him to spend his offseasons," University of Louisiana assistant coach Anthony Babineaux said Wednesday having just left the Lucroy home for his office. "He comes to games. He is involved with the school. He is involved with the community. That's just who he is."
    Lucroy, who grew up in Florida, ended up at ULL in 2005 after a late scholarship offer, one of the few he got from a Division I school. He met Sarah there, had a daughter and never left.
    On Aug. 11, two days after Lucroy landed in Texas, the clouds rolled in across south Louisiana, and it started to rain. It rained real hard, and it rained for a real long time.
    By the next morning, water was starting to enter homes in Lafayette. Several thousand families were eventually displaced, including that of Babineaux, a south Louisiana native who is used to flooding, but said he'd never seen anything in his hometown like what took place.
    By early morning on Aug. 12, the water was above the baseboards in his home. It eventually rose to two feet. The family picked up what it could, packed up what it had and went to a friend's home. By that afternoon, though, water was approaching that home.
    Babineaux's wife, a former ULL softball player, had received an offer from her old coach, who lives in Baton Rouge, to stay at her Lafayette home. Just as the Babineaux family, including two daughters ages 9 and 12, was about to head for that house, they received a call from the old softball coach. Water was about to flood her home in Baton Rouge and she'd need to -- she was embarrassed to say -- rescind the offer.
    Just as they hung up, Lucroy called. A former teammate made him aware of what was going on with Babineaux family. Lucroy, in the process of preparing for a game against Detroit, processed things, went back to watch some more video, but found it impossible to concentrate.
    "It was bothering me," Lucroy said. "They've been really good to me. I called my wife. We didn't think twice about it.

    "The place and the people mean a lot to me," he added. "They are hard-working, blue-collar people. I'm from a blue-collar family. There is nothing but swamp all around them and they made a place to live out of it. I believe in the people."
    The Lucroys have also gotten involved with the relief effort through their church, though Sarah has handled much of that.
    The water has since receded from the Babineaux home, but the dry wall has been removed and the house is basically down to studs. Making it livable again will probably take until November -- Thanksgiving is the hope.
    For the time being, they will stay at the Lucroy home. The Lucroys won't need it before October, and they hope, not until November.
    And when he gets home, typical of Jonathan Lucroy, he's as likely to check on the Babineaux house before he checks on his own.
