Jeff Banister is Hurting the Rangers in Year 2

 First, a disclaimer: Yes, I realize the Rangers are 28-21, and within a game of first place in the AL West. This isn't about that. It's about a baseball club that could probably afford to play a little better in order for the positive results to continue. If you're wrapped up in things like pitcher-batter matchups or Manager of the Year awards, this isn't for you. If that rubs...

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara Crushes Longest Home Run Of The Season In Win Over Angels

This is one of the reasons why I love baseball. Not because home runs are cool or anything like that, but because every year there are players that the average fan has never heard of that comes out of nowhere to become an absolute beast.

Josh Hamilton needs knee surgery, is out for season

Normally, news about a part-time player who hasn’t yet appeared in a game during the 2016 MLB season might not be worth a story. But when that player is a former American League MVP and five-time All-Star who once signed a five-year, $125 million contract, it’s probably worth noting when his season is over. For Josh Hamilton, the 2016 season never really began. The outfielder...

Remembering Rougned Odor’s Big Adjustment

After the scrum was gone, after he’d answered all the difficult questions about his punch heard around the baseball world, after he’d deflected and postponed and shrugged, after he slumped into his seat and sighed, Rougned Odor looked up and saw me coming. To his credit, he raised his eyebrows for the coming question, ready for another round. He was relieved when I asked him...

It’s been a quarter-century since voters agreed to pay for Globe Life Park (1991), which doesn’t seem all that long ago, but the team may be playing in a new stadium soon.
