It does not appear as if Ian Kinsler will get a contract extension before first pitch on Opening Day. The Rangers have been talking to his agent Jay Franklin about a deal in recent days but it does not appear as if they will beat Kinsler’s self-imposed Opening Day deadline.
But Kinsler was still able to wax poetic about Opening Day: “The biggest thing is we want to put on a good show in front of a packed house. Win or lose, you want to put on a good show and play your best baseball. Opening Day is the best day of the year. The regular season is such a long season, to finally kick it off is exciting..,the planes, flags, people, you get the smells of the ballpark, cotton candy and hot dogs mixed together, it gets the juices flowing.”
