Fan is short for fanatic. We’ve seen evidence of this numerous times over the years. Getting your favorite player tattooed somewhere on you is popular. Having players from your favorite team painted on your car has been done as well. Now we’re apparently at having a player’s likeness shaved into your head, like [...]

AROUND THE WEB
We’ve seen fans get images of their favorite athletes shaved into their hair before (see here and here), so it’s not like it’s such a big deal that this guy got Rangers catcher Mike Napoli’s likeness shaved into his head. Still, you have to admire a person’s level of fandom that they’d be willing to walk around in public with a Napoli haircut for the month or so that...
The Texas Rangers have placed catcher Mike Napoli on the 15-day disabled list with a left quadriceps strain.
The Rangers also have recalled catcher Luis Martinez from Triple-A Round Rock to replace Napoli on the roster. The moves were announced before their game Saturday night against the Detroit Tigers.
Napoli started in his first All-Star game back in July and is hitting .223...
Texas Rangers right fielder Nelson Cruz left Friday night's game against Detroit because of lower back stiffness.
Cruz appeared to get hurt in the seventh inning when he dived in an attempt to catch a ball hit by Austin Jackson. The ball bounced in front of Cruz, then over his glove and rolled to the wall as Jackson rounded the bases for the first inside-the-park home run of...
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Texas Rangers right fielder Nelson Cruz left Friday night's game against Detroit because of lower back stiffness.
Cruz appeared to get hurt in the seventh inning when he dived in an attempt to catch a ball hit by Austin Jackson. The ball bounced in front of Cruz, then over his glove and rolled to the wall as Jackson rounded the bases for the first inside...
One way to look at how a pitcher attacks hitters is to look at what the pitcher throws in two-strike counts. In two-strike counts, pitchers often try to put hitters away with a breaking ball, induce weak contact with a sinker, overpower hitters with an extra-hard fastball, or throw a changeup with a bit of extra screw action.
I hadn’t seen Yu Darvish pitch in quite some time,...
According to a report from Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas, Texas Rangers catcher, Mike Napoli has indeed been placed on the 15 day DL due to what the report is calling a left quad sprain.
The report also indicates that Luis Martinez will be called up from the minor league ranks to fill Napoli’s roster spot. Martinez has had zero at bats this season in the majors. Newly acquired...
61-52, 2nd place, 1 game behind CWS, tied for WC lead
Despite allowing too many baserunners (10 in 6 innings; the Rangers had at least one base runner in every inning), Scherzer’s too many strikeouts got him out of one jam after another, and then Dotel and Valverde impressively shut the door on a 6-2 Tigers win.
Today’s match-up looks to be the most favorable of the series...
In a trend that began last postseason, the Texas Rangers have had little trouble beating the Detroit Tigers.
They seem poised to continue that success now that Scott Feldman is suddenly pitching dominant ball.
Feldman looks to win his seventh straight decision in Friday night's series opener between the AL West-leading Rangers and visiting Tigers.
After a day off following...
A shaky bullpen, runners left on base and a hapless offense doomed the Tigers in their 2-1 loss to the Texas Rangers Saturday night.
After getting the bases loaded with one out in the top of the ninth the Tigers once again failed to get the go-ahead run across home plate as both Boesch and Peralta simply couldn’t get the job done.
In the following half inning Tigers reliever Brayan...
The past 2 seasons the Texas Rangers have been the AL’s representative in the World Series. The Rangers have lost both of those World Series. This offseason it seemed that the rival LA Angels were tired of watching the playoffs and decided to do something about that by throwing huge money at Albert Pujols and CJ Wilson. The Rangers countered the Angels huge moves...
