The first thing that comes to mind when Rangers fans think of no-hitters is that guy sitting somewhere near the dugout, the fireballer who pitched seven of them before moving into the front office and becoming the team's president and CEO. They certainly don't think of Nelson Cruz, Josh Hamilton and the rest of their potent offense.

Rangers star Hamilton hampered by groin injury

Texas Rangers star Josh Hamilton says his lingering groin injury is getting a bit worse. The slumping slugger strained his left groin about two months ago. He says that if this were the regular season, he'd probably be on the disabled list right now. Hamilton spoke Thursday before Game 2 of the World Series against St. Louis. He went 0 for 4 in the opener as Texas lost 3-2...

What's become of Josh Hamilton?

ST. LOUIS When Nelson Cruz is blasting six home runs in the ALCS, it's easy to look past what's going on with center fielder Josh Hamilton. It's not like he's disappeared in the postseason, but he certainly hasn't been himself. Hamilton went 0-for-4 in Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday and looked overmatched against the Cardinals' long-in-the-tooth...

Josh Hamilton Hopes Baseball Fans Avoid Red Sox Drama, Tune In to World Series

It's pretty evident that Major League Baseball wants the Red Sox and Cubs to wait until the World Series is over to announce any sort of deal regarding Theo Epstein. They're not alone on that front, as one of the game's best players is hoping the focus stays on the Fall Classic. Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton is hoping that baseball fans everywhere will tune out the...

Cruz comes up short and so do Rangers in WS opener

Nelson Cruz sprinted over to the foul line, desperately trying to run down Allen Craig's tailing liner. The right fielder came up just short, and so did the Texas Rangers.

Josh Hamilton Uses Just For Men To Make Sure His 'Stache Is Not Trash

We're slightly baffled by the box of Just For Men hair color spotted in Josh Hamilton's locker by reader Patrick. (For the record, mustache & beard, medium brown.) Hamilton is usually clean shaven, so perhaps it's one of the scads of promotional products sent unbidden to athletes every day? Unless...can you huff hair dye? More »

Home field should serve Rangers well

The Rangers may or may not have been staring into the abyss with three outs to go on Thursday night, teetering toward an 0-2 World Series deficit, but don't ask them to dwell on those dark images. The American League champs understand only that the Fall Classic looks infinitely more promising, now that they've got home field advantage, a forecast of warmer weather in Texas...

Who's the #2 Redbird?

I have an odd theory about why the Texas Rangers, despite their current 0-1 hole, at least seem like a better baseball team than the St. Louis Cardinals.Point #1: I think it's pretty clear who, given complete health, the best player on each team is. Albert Pujols (duh) and Josh Hamilton -- in fact, in the past couple of years, both have staked various claims on best player in...

World Series Game One

[Box Score] [C70 At the Bat] [Dallas Morning News] [ESPN Dallas] I turned the game on last night for a while because baseball history was being made.

For me, that moment was finding out that Arthur Rhodes was being paid a measly $1,000 dollars by the St. Louis Cardinals and $1.1 million by the Texas Rangers. The same...
