The last great Rangers season in what might be the last Rangers season for a while. SIXTH-INNING MAGIC. Last night’s game proved a few things. This Rangers team is for real. It’s special. It’s hard to beat even when you think you have it pinned to the mat. And there […]

June 15, 2019.

As we find out today how long this aberration of a season is going to be because neither side was willing to budge one inch in negotiations to bring back baseball for anything resembling a real schedule, it’s interesting to see that last year I wrote about how flush with […]

Play ball.

So, where are we and how did we get here? On Saturday, the players’ union said, enough is enough, we demand you set the schedule by Monday, tell us when we are to report and let’s get this thing going. It wasn’t a happy day. Yes, there will be baseball. […]

This came out of a funny headline in the paper. A SPEEDING CAR. A brilliant headline in the Arizona Republic got picked up by every news source in America and made the rounds in social media yesterday: Even funnier, who saw this speeding locomotive called the Texas Rangers undefeated road trip coming? […]

Draft, day two.

The MLB draft continued, and concluded, yesterday. The Rangers selected four more players. Report cards for the draft starting to come in. The team that ended with the worst grade of all from CBS Sports? That would be our very own Texas Rangers, who earned the only D of the […]

Ranked at number 32 by MLB Pipeline, the Rangers […]

Remember when Jurickson Profar was something? Remember when the Rangers owned the Astros? the videos of baseball change quickly. A RETURN TO NORMALCY. One day after the Houston Astros earned a rare win over the Texas Rangers, things were back to normal in Arlington. The Rangers were back to beating […]

This is when Gallo first came up. Third baseman Adrian Beltre was injured so they called up Gallo to play third. He went 3-for-4 with four RBIs and a home run in his first game. He ended up the season hitting .205 with an OPS of .717. GALLO WATCH. Let’s […]

Hard to believe but, at one time, not that long ago, the Rangers had the best record in the American League and were the cream of the crop. TALENT ON DISPLAY. Houston Astros save-blower Ken Giles claimed that his team had more talent than the Rangers, and that it had no business […]

June 7, 2015.

Texas began 2015 like they ended 2014. Mainly, a lot of bad baseball. But they slowly turned it around. THE NEW TEXAS RANGERS. It might be time to stop mentioning April. That Rangers team is gone. Both figuratively and literally. The April team was a bad team that was playing […]
