Texas Rangers short stop Elvis Andrus has been known for being a bit off a troublemaker from time to time. He can often be seen trying to rub Adrian Beltre's bald head--which he hates.

Hamilton was the target...
Slowly but surely, the Texas Rangers are showing signs of improvement. The bats aren’t yet steaming, but they are definitely warming, and starting pitching has improved in terms of quality, but not quite length.

The Texas Rangers are in Oakland to open up the season against their division rivals. The A’s do not look like the same team who made the playoffs last season.
