Surprise, Ariz. — Four score and seven years ago.
Wait. This is about baseball.
The Rangers need to score more like they did last year,
Texas got a new leadoff hitter, Shin-Soo Choo.
That makes Elvis Andrus happy.
"It will make things easier for me," Andrus told KETK. "I can bunt. I can hit behind him."
"It's going to be really good," Andrus added. "Try to get on base and let the guys like Prince and Adrian and Rios do the rest."
Prince Fielder, Adrian Beltre and Alex Rios have the big bats.
But they do not have the big beard.
That belongs to Andrus.
Along with his preseason smile.
