Texas Rangers RHP Tanner Scheppers was not available in Friday’s extra-inning loss to Cleveland because he was dealing with the after-effects of being attacked by “several young males,” on a street two blocks from the team hotel Thursday night.

Scheppers said he was out getting food Thursday night when he was attacked and “sucker-punched.” He did not recall the time, but did contact the police. A report was not filed after Scheppers said police told him it was unlikely that anybody would be apprehended.

Is this how the Dallas PD keeps its crime stats down?

There might be video footage, etc. around and they should at least pretend to investigate it. He's young and fit, but what are they going to say when these thugs kill some older innocent victim? There's no point in the police investigating because they might not find the thugs? Heck, that's true in any case, but you still have to investigate.

Let me guess:

His assailants were returning home from buying candy and a drink at a local convenience store and thought this creepy ass cracka was following them and were fearful and were forced to strike first for their own safety.

Do I have the Trayvon strike first rule right.

My husband is scheduled for surgery at Cleveland Clinic next month, and we live several hundred miles away. This is going to require me to stay at a hotel for about a week, and walk to the hospital. I’m thinking of cancelling and looking for a safer hospital.
