Ian Kinsler isn’t too happy these days. After being traded to the Detroit Tigers, Kinsler wishes the worst on the Texas Ragers. Kinsler is quoted in ESPN The Magazine “I hope they go 0-162, I got friends, and I love my friends, but I hope they lose their ass.”
According to the Freep Tigers twitter account Kinsler wasn’t pleased with the story. “I’m not happy about it. The story was written for drama and taken a little out of context. But it is what it is.” he told ESPN. Kinsler did not hear about the story until several hours on after because he was on flight. “It’s a matter of telling a joke, to be honest with you.” Kinlser will have to defend his world when the Tigers take on the Rangers in a four game series opening on May 22.
