The Rangers' recent success has caused an exponential growth in the fan base. Before 2010, when the Rangers were typically out of the division race by August and the Cowboys are getting started with their preseason OTA's and workouts, the Metroplex became pretty lukewarm to the Rangers.
Now in October, fans chant for the Rangers in the Cowboys' stadium. The Rangers' fans have suddenly begun to live and die by the team. It's been great for ticket sales and revenue, obviously.
The last thing fans need is a C.J. Wilson import. No one cared or believed that Wilson was a knife fighter, could land a 757 or had 3 iPads. Darvish doesn't need his Twitter to become a topic of discussion. He needs to embrace the fans, be humble and win games. That isn't too much to ask is it?
There is going to be national attention on every game this year but Darvish needs to make sure he is keeping the Texas fans happy first.
