Happy spending.

Five new uniforms. Five? Really? A primary home uniform for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday home games. An alternate uniform to wear only for Friday home games.  An alternate uniform to wear only for Sunday home games. A primary road uniform. An alternate road uniform for special road games. […]


Future Rangers?

More than fifty players became free agents after Monday’s non-tender trade deadline. They reached a point where their past performance was going to dictate they get a raise in arbitration to a predicted dollar level their current teams don’t want to pay. Here are ten that fit the Rangers, or […]


Keeping a prospect too long.

Ex-Rangers all-world can’t-miss number-one superstar-in-waiting prospect Jurickson Profar is now a Padre.  It will be his third team in three seasons. He will fight for playing time at second with another former Rangers, Ian Kinsler, who is on the second of a two-year deal he signed with San Diego last […]


Rangers Team of the Decade.

Looking over MLB.com’s list of Ten Best Players of the Decade, and seeing as there is no actual Rangers news, it seemed a Rangers Team of the Decade was in order. Going around the diamond, Rangers of the Decade are: Starters:Yu DarvishCole HamelsMike MinorCliff LeeColby Lewis Bullpen:Joe NathanNeftali FelizMike AdamsJake […]


Top ten of 2010s.

With nothing else to talk about, MLB.com is now coming up with lists. Their latest is the list of the ten best players of the 2010 decade. Adrian Beltre made the list, reminding Rangers fans how lucky they were to see him pay day in and day out. It was […]


Orlando is dreaming.

A few days ago, sports executive Pat Williams, who was responsible for Orlando landing an NBA team in that central Florida town in 1989, announced he plans to bring major league baseball to Orlando as well. He wants to call it the Orlando Dreamers. I hope baseball doesn’t expand. There […]


The Kyle Gibson era.

Last season, thirty-two-year-old righthander Kyle Gibson went 13-7 (good) with a 4.84 ERA (not great) and a WHIP of 1.444 (not good at all). Those numbers pretty much mirror his career numbers. In his seven major league seasons, all with Minnesota, Gibson has been good at times and not so […]


Thanks.

On this Thanksgiving Day, there’s a lot to be thankful for. I’m thankful for baseball.  It’s a cliché to say that bad baseball is better than no baseball but offseasons are tough. Without games to watch, it’s six months of darkness. While the baseball being played by my hometown hero […]


Just another punk.

Ugly news about former Ranger Sam Dyson. He is being investigate for domestic abuse against his girlfriend, who has since left him. There is no excuse for this type of behavior. And no sympathy for the abuser whatsoever. He has yet to be charged with anything. MLB is in the […]


Team of the year.

Seemingly an effort to drum up excitement in what looks to be another uneventful offseason, MLB has started a campaign where fans can vote for the All-2019 Team. The Rangers have two players eligible: Mike Minor and Lance Lynn.  Not surprisingly, the baseball minds who put together this list didn’t […]
