Take your pick. While I'll Have Another will now have a shot to win horse racing's first Triple Crown since 1978 after taking home the Preakness on Saturday, Josh Hamilton has a Triple Crown on his mind as well. The Rangers outfielder enters Sunday leading the American League in home runs (18), RBIs (46) and batting average (.384) -- all by a fairly wide margin. It's still early, but if he keeps swinging a hot bat, he could finish first in all three categories. Triple Crown or no Triple Crown, though, the fact remains that Hamilton is going to get...

Josh Hamilton Needs To Do Himself a Favor and Stay In Texas

Everyone including yours truly is on the Josh Hamilton bandwagon. What baseball fan wouldn’t be? Hamilton may have his sights set on a huge pay day, but he can earn plenty of money and become even more of an inspiration if he stays in Texas for less. (Urban Christian News) “The Great Hambino” After a ‘pedestrian’ 3-for-11 effort at the plate in Houston over the...

On the Disabled List The Texas Rangers have placed their young starting pitching stud, Neftali Feliz, on the 15-day Disabled List. The Texas Rangers made an announcement via Twitter.

Lewis pitches deep, collects two RBI in win

I was wrong in yesterday’s post.  The Rangers pitchers do not hate interleague play.  At least not all of them do.  Colby Lewis looked extremely comfortable on the mound and at the plate during the weekend’s finale in Houston. Lewis pitched into the 9th inning, striking out six, walking one and allowing just one run.  Of course, that run came on a home run.  That’s Colby’s...

Rangers place Neftali Feliz on 15-day DL

Feliz was having a pretty good season after moving to the Rangers starting rotatoin from the bullpen, posting a 3.16 ERA in 42 2/3 innings. Feliz struck out 37 and walked 23 on the season, but in his last...

Murphy hits inside-the-parker in Rangers’ loss

Rangers pitchers really don’t seem fond of interleague play.  Last night, Neftali Feliz fell flat, and tonight it was Derek Holland’s turn. Holland started out pretty good.  A one-two-three 1st and then just one hit in the 2nd. The offense gave him a little run support to work with in the 3rd.  David Murphy’s inside-the-park, three-run home run was pretty exciting.  Embarrassing...

HOUSTON (AP) -- Adrian Beltre homered and drove in two runs and Michael Young broke out of a slump with two hits and an RBI to lift the Texas Rangers to a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Friday night.

Rangers 6, Astros 1

Colby Lewis allowed four hits in eight-plus innings and drove in two runs, and the Texas Rangers took a five-run lead in the first inning before coasting to a 6-1 win over the Houston Astros on Sunday.

Nolan Ryan discusses Hamilton's future

HOUSTON (AP) -- Texas Rangers star slugger Josh Hamilton insists he isn't worried about his impending free agency. Team president Nolan Ryan certainly is. Hamilton, who is eligible for free agency after this season, says he's not worrying about it "at all."

Minor Accomplishments for Week 6

A week ago, I updated Jurickson Profar with news that his hitting streak had reached 21 games.  Well, Profar’s streak has now swelled to 29, the longest in pro ball this year.  With the graduations of Bryce Harper, Mike Trout and Matt Moore, Profar takes over as the game’s top prospect and it’s not too soon to start considering how and when he fits in with the Rangers. ...
