Breaking news.

And now, some earth-shattering news. Yesterday, MLB Network Radio passed along an exclusive report from the New York Post that the Texas Rangers are interested in Jordan Montgomery. I sincerely hope you were sitting down when you read that. Or, that you don’t have a heart condition. If so, and you […]


For the first time in our lifetimes, Rangers fans can be thankful for the Rangers winning it all. There were so many bleak years. So many Rougned Odors and Tanner Scheppers and Mark Clarks and Chan Ho Parks. But those have faded into the past and Rangers fans can finally […]

Beltre on the Hall ballot.

Nathanial Lowe at first, Jonah Heim at catcher, and Adolis Garcia in right. The only other team in the American League with […]

Fans flock to celebrate the Rangers.

An estimated crowd of 500,000 jammed into a postage-stamp size section of Arlington surrounding the Rangers ballpark yesterday to celebrate the Rangers winning their first-ever World Series championship.
