Where are they now?   Recently updated !

Elvis Andrus signed a minor league deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks yesterday. Which brought up the thought: Where have other former Rangers gone? The crop that led to six straight losing seasons, and a decade of futility, are all still holding on to the dream in one form or another. […]

Diego Castillo.

Last year, the Rangers signed the other Will Smith. Not the Will Smith cather, the Will Smith relief pitcher. And he seemed to be dancing on the ledge every appearance. Still, he saved twenty-two games and was valuable until he ran out of steam at the end of the season. […]

The new Core Four?

When the Yankees were dominating baseball back in the late ’90s and early ’00s, it was because of their “Core Cour.” Four players that they drafted and developed at around the same time, came up through the system, and contributed to four World Series championships in a five-year period. Derek […]

So far.

Even though spring stats are irrelevant, they do keep track of them, and it’s fun to see what people are doing. Like watching reality TV. You know it’s not real. But it’s on. The Rangers have played seven spring games, won five, lost one, tied one.  There are some notable individual […]

Rangers knock off mighty Dodgers.

It doesn’t mean a lot, but the Rangers handed the Dodgers their first defeat of the season. After signing nearly every coveted free agent and spending about a billion dollars this offseason, the Los Angeles Dodgers set out to make a statement. They ant to win the World Series. They […]

Best player on the field.

It’s one thing for the hitting coach to sing Wyatt Langford’s praises. Or his manager. But when the pitching coach walks back into the clubhouse after seeing him hit and declares, “I just saw the best player on the field,” and a whole bunch of All-Stars were on that same […]

The return of Jared Walsh.

What happened to Jared Walsh? He finished seventh in Rookie of the Year voting in 2020 while with the Angels. His numbers were pretty impressive, too. He batted .293, had an elite .971 OPS, and an OPS+ of 157. To put that into perspective, only Corey Seager and Evan Carter […]


The Rangers and Giants held a spring training game yesterday and a soccer match broke out. After nine innings, neither Texas or San Francisco could score a run in yesterday’s Cactus League game and the game ended like 99.87 percent of all soccer matches. Nil to nil.  Each team managed […]

Matt Duffy.

Spring training is a six-week tease. Its main function was to get starting pitchers built up to go nine innings, going one inning their first start then working up to three their second start, five, then seven, then nine. That plan was hatched back when starters were expected to go […]

Dunning’s new pitch.

The Rangers may not have gotten the new pitcher they need for their rotation, but in a major story that broke first on yesterday, it was reported that Dane Dunning has a new pitch.  Hey, Rangers fans, take what you can get. He won’t say what the pitch is. […]
