Josh Hamilton left his ever lasting impression on Safeco Field's center field wall last night. Alex Liddi hit a bomb to center field and Hamilton a terrific defender, who has robbed many people of extra-base hits in the past, did the same to Liddi. Hamilton ran straight into a padded center field wall, but clearly not padded enough to save Hamilton from being a little banged up after the catch. The Texas Rangers magangement must have been holding their breath after Hamilton hit the wall, as Hamilton is one of baseball's most injury prone players. The 2010 AL MVP has...

Neftali Feliz: Messing with a Good Thing

In the 2012 season, few players have disappointed on the Texas Rangers roster: Yu Darvish is a stud (2.98 xFIP in his last six starts), Adrian Beltre apparently lied about his age (he’s 10 years younger than previously believed), and Josh Hamilton is using a Game Genie and is 7 homers away — so, like a week away — from matching his 2011 home run total. In the Rangers Machine...

Feliz says he expects to remain a starter

While the Rangers are focused on how they will replace injured RHP Neftali Feliz in the short term, there is also this to consider: What will they do with Feliz when he returns? Feliz, speaking for the first time since he was diagnosed Monday with a sprained elbow ligament, said through an interpreter that "in my mind," he will go back to the rotation when healthy....

Blue Jays-Rangers Preview

The Texas Rangers have been unusually quiet at the plate lately and might have trouble ending that trend against Toronto's Brandon Morrow, who is coming off his second shutout in four starts. Josh Hamilton and the Rangers will try to begin breaking out of their offensive slump Friday night when they open a three-game home series against Morrow and the Blue Jays. Hamilton leads...

The True Red and Blue: Tim

Today’s an off-day.  This means no Rangers baseball.  I need the break and so do the boys. This season, I have decided to use off-days as a time to introduce you to some of the great people I’ve met because of the Rangers and social media.  These are people I watch every game “with” via twitter.  I’ve tried watching without my Twitter family, and let me tell you it’s...

Feldman fails in Seattle

With Neftali Feliz out until at least the end of June, Scott Feldman had a chance to step up and show the team that he could be dependable.  Unfortunately, he did not accomplish that today. He had two good innings, but they weren’t enough to overshadow the other bad ones.  Despite issuing three walks in the 2nd, he managed to get to the 5th inning with the Mariners leading 1...

Rangers 3, Mariners 1

Elvis Andrus lined a two-strike pitch into the left-center field gap for a two-run triple, Josh Hamilton made two tremendous catches in center field and added an RBI double, and the Texas Rangers snapped Seattle's win streak at four with a 3-1 win over the Mariners on Tuesday night. While Hamilton continues to scuffle at the plate, his defense in the outfield remains suburb...

Alex Liddi and the Greatest European Players Ever

Yesterday, Alex Liddi hit a grand slam, which the AP noted was “the first major league grand slam by an Italian-born player in half-century.” That actually understates the true rarity of Liddi’s accomplishment: as a matter of fact, Liddi is only the second Italian-born player of all time to homer in the big leagues, since utility infielder Reno Bertoia retired in 1962 with...

A must-see Home Run Derby

The Home Run Derby contest has gone much the way of the NBA Slam Dunk contest or the NFL Pro Bowl. It's losing its popularity that it once so gloriously carried in the 1990's. Thankfully for Major League Baseball, once every few years, they get an unforgettable performance from someone like Josh Hamilton that revives the luster of this once great exhibition of herculean...

Harrison shuts down Seattle in Rangers' win

SEATTLE (AP) -- Elvis Andrus lined a two-strike pitch into the left-center field gap for a two-run triple, Josh Hamilton made two tremendous catches in center field and added an RBI double, and the Texas Rangers snapped Seattle's win streak at four with a 3-1 win over the Mariners on Tuesday night. While Hamilton continues to scuffle at the plate, his defense in the outfield...

2012 MLB Analysis: Know Your Enemy AL West

Seattle gains ground May has not been kind to the AL West. The division has a 43-44 record in May, with just Oakland and Los Angeles enjoying winning records.

A must-see homerun derby

GIFcap: Darwin Barney & David DeJesus Combine For Lulz + Alex Liddi Does It Solo

Alex Liddi demonstrates why you can’t just stick an infielder in the outfield. Plus, the Cubs combination of Darwin Barney and David DeJesus provided a candidate for fail of the year. Brought to you courtesy of Jaymes Langrehr. My favorite part was DeJesus holding up his glove like he was Link and the ball was
