He finished 7 innings on only 80 pitches, and while he didn't walk anyone, he also didn't...

Computers (Still) Don't Like The Rangers

Listen, I like projections. I like playoff odds. I like what computers have to say, because computers are the closest we can get to objective truth in baseball. There, I'm guilty.The fact is that computers haven't been impressed by the Rangers over the last couple of years. They still are not impressed. Before the year I wrote that FanGraphs and PECOTA projected the Rangers at 81...

Griffin be the most pleasant surprise of the season from a Rangers perspective?Fraley: Has to be. He has the same exact record, ERA and innings as Cole Hamels.

Texas Rangers: The power of music is with A.J. Griffin

The Major League Baseball season is a taxing one; 162 games to be exact. Even though the 2016 campaign just kicked off, MLB players are already looking for an outlet to help them through the grind of the season. For pitcher A.J.

Texas Rangers: The return of Yu Darvish

The Texas Rangers can expect a big boost on the mound this coming May or June in the form of Yu Darvish. So far this season, the Rangers have not been shy in showing that they are capable of winning without the All-Star, but Darvish brings something to the table that no other Ranger pitcher can; seven different pitches.

How should the Texas Rangers handle a soon-to-be crowded outfield?

Not too long before the season’s start did the Rangers appear to lack outfield depth. Now it seems they are too deep, or at least they will be soon. The recent injury to Shin-Soo Choo opened the door for top prospect Nomar Mazara to get his feet wet in the big leagues.
