Not yet.

Remember when you were a kid and the Christmas tree was up and there were presents under the tree with your name on it and it was a few days before Christmas and those wrapped gifts were like they were just mocking you to open them but you couldn’t and […]

Prediction time.

With the start of the season just four days away, and the Rangers being done with Surprise, Arizona, for 2023, it’s time for the annual predictions.  If you recall, three wild card teams in each league make the playoffs. The teams in bold are the post-season teams.  World Series: San […]

Few surprises left.

There aren’t many surprises left in Surprise. There are so few going into any spring training. Rosters are mostly set every year. It’s not like Corey Seager has to come in and turn heads and see if he can make the team. The Rangers had their five-man rotation set beforehand. […]

Rangers farm system ranked 7th.

Jim Callis is one of the most respected experts on major league farm systems. Twice a year he ranks each team’s minor league organization. His 2023 preseason rankings are out and the Rangers are ranked seventh out of thirty. They are pretty much holding steady to where he ranked them […]

The most important start ever.

He came. He pitched. He didn’t fall apart. In the most important spring training game in Texas Rangers history, Jacob deGrom threw three scoreless innings, striking out four Mariners, and allowing just two hits. He threw three fastballs that broke 100 mile per hour. With just eight more spring training […]

It’s a deGrom day.

Every game Jacob deGrom pitches is must watch baseball. And it’s just not the usual compelling baseball reason. It’s the hold your breath and close your eyes and hope he makes it through it reason. Like a toddler holding a priceless piece of china, and all you can do is […]

Pitching? What?

Wait a second. Is this the Rangers? All this optimistic talk about pitching. This cannot possibly be the Rangers. Nathan Eovaldi is pitching pain free and hitting 99 miles per hour. Dane Dunning threw five scoreless innings. Jacob deGrom actually pitched. Eovaldi and deGrom are heading up the rotation. Dunning […]
