MICHAEL KIRKMAN RUMORS

Texas Rangers: can they win with an all right-handed pen?

The Texas Rangers opened the 2015 season by breaking one of the cardinal rules of baseball.  Texas had zero left-handed relievers on their opening day roster.  In an era which is ruled by matchups and disposing of a team on a batter to batter basis, this is practically unheard of.  The Rangers must have seen this coming after the departure of lefties Neal Cotts and Robbie Ross...
