The Particular Upside of Robbie Ross

Toward the end of the day on Tuesday, the Boston Red Sox and Texas Rangers swapped Anthony Ranaudo and Robbie Ross. It doesn’t immediately seem like a trade of much consequence: Ranaudo’s a prospect with diminishing sheen, and Ross is coming off a pretty ugly experience as an attempted big-league starter. And, probably, it won’t […]

Brandon Beachy has finalized a deal with a mystery team?

Brandon Beachy. Photo Credit: Getty Images. Yes, it’s odd. A deal is supposedly finalized for right-hander Brandon Beachy, and we know the player but not the team? It’s just not the way your average free agent signing is usually reported. Apparently the news of the deal is true though. The deal was first reported by Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities on Saturday. The...

The Texas Rangers Turn The Page On 2014

The Texas Rangers held their annual banquet “celebrating” the 2014 season this past Friday, a day before holding their annual FanFest this past Saturday. This effectively marks the organizations official transition from 2014 to 2015, even though all Rangers fans turned the page on 2014 in about July last year. This transition affords us a perfect opportunity to digest what the...

Relief help still a focus for Rangers

The Texas Rangers addressed their needs for starting pitching and catching help last week. The priority now is finding some more relievers. "The bullpen is an area we'd like to add if we can," Texas general manager Jon Daniels said. "We've only got three left-handed relievers coming to camp in (Robbie) Ross, (Alex) Claudio and (Michael) Kirkman. It might be a situation where we've...

FG on Fox: The Decline of Yovani Gallardo

On Monday, while the world was reacting to the news of Max Scherzer‘s signing, the Texas Rangers made a nifty little trade, acquiring Yovani Gallardo from the Milwaukee Brewers for three so-so prospects that they probably won’t miss too much.

Report: Rangers acquire Yovani Gallardo from Brewers

Adding to what was a questionable starting rotation, the Texas Rangers have acquired veteran Yovani Gallardo from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for a trio youngsters.

Player Profile #131: Elvis Andrus | SS | TEX

Since breaking into the majors in 2009, Elvis Andrus has tallied the sixth-most PA in baseball with 3,974, or 662 per season. If you start the counter from 2010, his second season, Andrus is tops among all. That’s what happens when you play every day batting leadoff for what has mostly been a prolific offense. I say mostly because whatever dreck the Rangers were trotting out last...

Daniel Bard Is Poised For A 2015 Comeback

(Texas Rangers Photo)There was a time when Daniel Bard was viewed as the heir apparent to then-closer Jonathan Papelbon. As an elite set-up man who routinely hit triple digits on radar guns, Bard was expected to be a productive member of the Red Sox pitching staff for years to come. Then, in 2012, injuries began to cause bizarre wildness. Physical issues morphed into psychological...

Daniel Bard Working Hard To Make Comeback In 2015 After Shoulder Surgery

Daniel Bard is on the comeback trail. When we last saw Bard in Major League Baseball, it was 2013 and the wiry right-hander was struggling with his control with the Boston Red Sox.
