BEST OF MAXIM
Mike Napoli has a history of hurting the Red Sox on the field, but he was sitting out of Wednesday's game in Texas. Whether he was sitting in the dugout or in the stands, however, was a little difficult to determine. NESN cameras spotted a fan at Wednesday night's game with a sign proclaiming his resemblance to the Rangers catcher and we have to hand it to him, he's right...
The Red Sox might have caught a break when they missed out on facing Roy Oswalt on Monday, but the Rangers' spot starter in Scott Feldman was more than up to the task of shutting down the Sox. Jarrod Saltalamacchia homered early to give Boston a lead, but it turned out to be short-lived. Mike Napoli continued his dominance of the Red Sox, homering again off Felix Doubront, who...
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Scott Feldman, starting after Roy Oswalt was scratched with back tightness, threw seven strong innings to lead the Texas Rangers to a 9-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Monday night.
Feldman (4-6) won his fourth straight decision and pitched his longest outing since throwing eight innings on June 2, 2010. He gave up one earned run and seven hits with...
Scott Feldman, starting after Roy Oswalt was scratched with back tightness, threw seven strong innings to lead the Texas Rangers to a 9-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Monday night.
Feldman (4-6) won his fourth straight decision and pitched his longest outing since throwing eight innings on June 2, 2010. He gave up one earned run and seven hits with five strikeouts.
Maybe the Sox would've had better luck with Roy Oswalt? They sure couldn't manage to score off of Scott Feldman.
Feldman was able to scatter seven hits over seven innings and the only offense the Sox managed to get across home plate came from a Jarrod Saltalamacchia home run as the Rangers destroy the Sox 9-1.
The Rangers put up nine unanswered runs, four in the third...
Today was such a strange day in baseball.
Ichiro became a Yankee … and instantly played against his former team. That would be really weird if I was a Mariners fan.
Tom Grieve announced that the Rangers broadcasters would no longer be acknowledging those who brought treats to them on air. Cookie talk has been moved to the FSSW web site. There was much rejoicing on Twitter.
ARLINGTON, Texas - Scott Feldman was sharp despite a two-week layoff and the Texas Rangers' offense came to life in Monday night's 9-1 victory over the slumping Boston Red Sox. American League West-leading Texas (57-38) is neck-and-neck with the New York Yankees for the best record in baseball, while Boston (48-49) is under .500 for the first time since June 16. The three...
Carl Crawford was pulled in the seventh inning of Tuesday night's win in favor of getting Daniel Nava some reps in the field. But Crawford is back in the in Red Sox lineup on Wednesday night, and he's hitting seven spot once again. While Crawford drops down to balance out the bottom of the Boston batting order, Pedro Ciriaco gets his second straight start at the DH and will...
While hitting isn't always a necessity in order to be a catcher, it certainly helps. When a team has a backstop who can rake at the plate in addition to sitting behind it, a position of traditional weakness can very quickly become one of power. And when looking around the American League, there's certainly no shortage of power at the catching position. Mike Napoli, who homered...

Mike Napoli continued to wreak havoc against his former team, the Angels, hitting .455 with two home runs over the weekend. That, however, translated to only one win for the Rangers.

A four-game sweep at the hands of the Athletics dampened the excitement from a sweep of the Blue Jays...
Roy Oswalt was scratched from his scheduled start yesterday for the Rangers against the Red Sox due to a reoccurance of back problems that have nagged Oswalt for most of his career. Scott Feldman started in his place, and for at least one night, Feldman didn't look like a guy who had trouble pitching in the majors this year. Against a rather strong Boston lineup, Feldman...
