Texas Rangers: Fight club
In the words of Indians manager Mike Hargrove (from Sports Illustrated): "Going after Nolan is like going after the Lincoln Memorial."
In the words of White Sox pitcher Jack McDowell (from SI): "The whole world stops when that guy pitches, like he's a god or something. He's been throwing at batters forever, and people are gutless to do anything about it. You can bet if it had been me out there, I would have been run."
McDowell was wrong about Ryan, of course. He wasn't a god.
He was bigger than that. At least in Texas.
