Texas' Young shows signs of improvement

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington has been adamant that he won't be sitting Michael Young in favor of any young players while the veteran tries to find his swing. "Before the season is over, he's going to do something grand," was Washington's line. For Young, though, "grand" means consistency. It's only a week, but the Rangers are starting...

Q&A: Roy Oswalt, Evolution of a Career

Much like the old gray mare, Roy Oswalt isn’t what he used to be. That doesn’t mean the 35-year-old right-hander is ready to be put out to pasture. He can still be an effective pitcher, he simply can’t be ridden as hard as he was from 2001-2010. During that period, Oswalt was a 200-innings-a-year workhorse who twice won 20 games, captured an ERA title, and represented the Astros...

Dave Barnett will return to announce a North Texas football game

In great news it appears that Dave Barnett will be returning to the booth in November to announce a North Texas football game. This is fantastic to hear after a scary rambling incident earlier this summer during a Texas Rangers game left many concerned for his career and more importantly his health. Barnett is a Mean Green alum and in the past has called college football games...

Joe Nathan- One of the Best

Joe Nathan is one of the best closers in MLB history.  I know, that probably surprises you.  He's converted 90% of save opportunities over his 12 year career, only blowing 32 saves.  His career ERA is 2.85, WHIP is 1.10, and he has 50 W to go along with his 291 SV (currently ranked 25th all-time).  As a typical closer, he strikes out better than a batter per inning (826...

Rays try to bounce back from loss to Texas

Four of the five meetings between the Texas Rangers and Tampa Bay Rays over the last week-plus have either been decided by one run or in extra innings. There's little reason to expect any less than another exciting matchup when two teams hoping to make a run in October conclude their season series Sunday at Tropicana Field. Texas took two of three against Tampa Bay from Aug...

Rangers 5, Royals 4(10)

Josh Hamilton and Adrian Beltre hit back-to-back homers in the fourth to help the AL West leaders overcome a 3-0 deficit.

Rangers 4, Rays 2(10)

Rookie Jurickson Profar hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the 10th inning, helping the Texas Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-2 on Saturday night. Geovany Soto had a two-out double to deep center off Kyle Farnsworth (1-4). Profar then made it 3-2 when he drove in pinch-runner Leonys Martin on his hit past a diving Carlos Pena down the first-base line. Texas took a 4-2 lead when...
