Texas Rangers to Call Up Manny Ramirez After the All-Star Break?

In a recent radio interview team president Nolan Ryan was asked about...

Rangers’ Colby Lewis ready to resume rehab assignment

The Texas Rangers have already sent right-hander Colby Lewis out on rehab assignment twice this season. Neither stint in the minors ended with an activation from the disabled list.

Report: Manny Ramirez Won’t Join Texas After All-Star Break, Not in Rangers’ Imminent Plans

In eight games for the Triple-A Round Rock Express, Manny Ramirez has done just about everything within his power to show that he deserves another look in the big leagues. Unfortunately, Ramirez’s best may not be good enough. In those eight games, the 41-year-old outfielder/DH has hit three home runs, slugging an even .600 with a .964 OPS. However, the reason that the Texas Rangers...

Rangers closer Joe Nathan plays cup drums during All Star Game (VIDEO)

Things can get quite boring out in the bullpen while sitting around awaiting your turn.  They sure did for Rangers closer Joe Nathan during Tuesday’s All Star Game.  Instead of listening to Yankees legendary closer Mariano Rivera coach up Blue Jays reliever Steve Delabar, he had better things to do. He wanted to sit there and beat on his cup.  At least I hope he was wearing a cup.

Rangers may call up Manny Ramirez

Get ready for it.  The once revered, not reviled, Manny Ramirez could soon get a call-up from the Texas Rangers.  Texas signed Ramirez to a minor league deal after he had success playing overseas.  Ramirez has twice tested positive for banned substances leading to his exile and overseas play.  But now he's back, and he's dangerously close to donning a Major League uniform...

How Hot Is This Rangers Fan At The All-Star Game?

This isn’t one of those sarcastic, rhetorical post when the girl is just completely out-of-control out. At first glance, I thought this Texas Rangers fan [in the red, with giant cans] was super hot. I was actually going to write a whole article how she was the true MVP of the 2013 All-Star game. Than I saw this GIF from @CorkGaines The more this animation loops, the more her...

Joe Nathan gets unexpected save

''I didn't know I was coming in to close until I was...

Verlander no-hits Texas until 7th, Rangers lose

DETROIT (AP) -- Justin Verlander held Texas hitless until the seventh inning, and the Detroit Tigers backed their ace with three home runs in a 5-0 victory over the Rangers on Sunday.

Rangers drop another one in Detroit

I don’t remember ever being this relieved to see the All-Star Break.  Although I probably say that every year, this year I really mean it.  Between the injuries and the fatigue that seems to have infected the remaining players lately, I’m ready for my boys to have a break.  I need one too. The Rangers were nearly no-hit today in Detroit. Not really a surprising statement,...
