Texas Rangers


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. […]


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.

Nil-nil.

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 […]


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 TexasRangers.com 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. […]


Spring opening day.

It’s the first day of the spring exhibition schedule, what has lately been come to be called the Cactus League. Players in Texas Rangers uniforms go up against players in Kansas City Royals uniforms. For many, it’s the only time they will ever get to wear a major league uniform. […]


Knizner.

When the other catcher on your team is Yadier Molina, you have to resign yourself to knowing you will be the backup catcher. That was Andrew Knizner’s fate as a catcher coming up in the Saint Louis Cardinals minor league system. And when Molina retired after the 2022 season, he […]
