Elvis Andrus and the Texas Rangers walk off

Yesterday, while bugging a friend of mine to come hang out instead of watching his favorite MLS team play, I received the following text message: “Please!

As George Carlin once said while comparing football and baseball, “Football is rigidly timed,...

Garza bunny ears Holland for team photo

ARLINGTON, Texas - There's no questioning Texas starter Matt Garza's intensity. Garza's the guy who ripped Eric Sogard's wife on Twitter after her husband bunted on him in Oakland.

The Official All-Time PED All-Star Team

With the recent MLB steroid scandals, now seemed an appropriate time to create an All-Star team comprised of the best baseball players to ever take steroids. As a disclaimer, I should note that a couple of these players were never technically proven to have used PEDs, but the writing is on the wall. I mean, does anybody really believe Barry Bonds didn’t use PEDs? Anyway, without...

Beltre delivers again as Rangers beat Astros 4-2

Rangers escape 5-4 after pitching falters late vs. Astros

Derek Holland reached deep into the file of Things That Should Never Happen in the seventh inning Wednesday night.
