Odor reportedly rejected extension offer from Rangers

Right hooks notwithstanding, Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor has had a fantastic year. With 16 home runs and 46 RBIs on a .275/.296/.491 slash line in the first half of the season, Odor has flashed tremendous power for a middle infielder and has helped Texas to a comfortable lead atop the AL West.

Gregory Polanco and the search for consistency

Last year on the Fourth of July, I sat on top of the right field wall at PNC Park and talked quite a bit to my dad about Gregory Polanco.

Gregory Polanco easily retires Trevor Cahill on a 9-3 putout

Usually when we see 9-3 putouts, a catcher or pitcher is running, the right fielder is playing shallow, and uncorks a laser beam of a throw to retire the baserunner. And on Tuesday in Pittsburgh, that’s exactly what happened when Gregory Polanco gunned out Trevor Cahill, who wasn’t even running hard to first.

Either way, Polanco’s mishap Friday on the final play of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ walk-off loss to the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field was a sight to behold. Matt Szczur lifted a fly ball to right field in the bottom of...
