The last day of the year is always great for retrospective articles. Even better are the ones I don’t have to write. From Doug Miller of mlb.com, the ten best games of 2017. Enjoy. Happy New Year and, to everyone in RR3 Nation, be safe.
No matter how bleak things are in Rangersland, at least we’re not Padres fans. So far, Texas has added three really mediocre pitchers to its rotation in Mike Minor, Doug Fister and Matt Moore. But the Padres took it one step further. They just signed a pitcher who wasn’t even […]
Here’s good article written by Jeff Wilson in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram about Shin-Soo Choo and the Rangers talks of trying to move his contract. Choo has been one of the Rangers most consistent hitters. As Wilson points out, despite the pleads of poverty and the claims they don’t have […]
I always thought there was an inner competition between Joey Gallo and his two friends growing up. Kris Bryant and Bryce Harper, both have already won MVPs. Gallo, on the other hand, had not a successful major league hitter. It had to gnaw at him. It did. Here’s a great […]

Last year’s Darvish, Hamels, Perez, Cashner, and Griffin was better than this year’s Hamels, Perez, Fister, Minor, Moore. The […]
