Angels score two runs on Rangers wild pitch

There was so much that went on in this play during Tuesday night's Rangers-Angels game.

Extensions and Injuries: Colby Lewis Gets a One-Year Extension From Rangers

Offering a contract extension to an injured player is a risky proposition.  It gets more risky when we're talking about baseball contracts.  In football, a team can essentially tear up a contract, void it, and start over if they don't like what they see from someone or if that player can't perform.  However, contracts in baseball are guaranteed.  Aside from incentive...

Rangers can’t rally after Angels plate eight in 4th

I’m just going to come right out and say it — tonight’s game sucked.  OK, so the whole thing wasn’t terrible, but all I can really remember is that 4th inning.  That’s really the only inning that mattered in tonight’s game. Down 1-0 heading into the 3rd, the Rangers fired back with a Mike Napoli home run, a Mitch Moreland single and an Ian Kinsler two-run shot.  They...
