SAN DIEGO 6 weeks have passed since San Diego's Bruce Bochy took the job as Rangers manager. It's still too soon for him to get a reprieve.

When he had signed a five-year, $185 million contract with the New York Rangers, Bochy did not know whether to spray champagne, give his opening day starter

Bochy, who signed a three-year contract with the Rangers after being absent from the last three seasons, knew that the club intended to sign costly free agents

Just as the 2016–17 Rangers did when they placed $500 million on infielders Corey Seager and Marcus Semien.

Bochy felt good about it, but you realize a lot more clubs are likely to approach the individual. Consequently, you don't know exactly where you are now in relation

When euphoria hits at this point, I can't express how thrilled I was that we were able to bring him with us. I am thankful for Jacob for coming to Texas

 But I am also grateful to C. J. [Chris Young], ownership, who stepped up and helped us to recruit a rookie who was very much what we needed at that time

The Cowboys have been giving baseball fans everywhere something to anticipate. They plan to spend, they plan win, and they intend to carry that tradition back to Texas
