RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Blue Jays showing interest in their former outfielder Alex Rios

In an interesting twist, the Blue Jays are showing interest in their former player Alex Rios, according to sources. Rios is one of the best hitters in a thin market for middle-of-the-lineup batters, so it shouldn't come as a surprise Toronto, with three key injuries hurting them now, would check in. Yet, it is a bit ironic since the Blue Jays were thrilled in 2009 when the White...

Yu Darvish Pushes for a Six-Man Rotation

Yu Darvish and Masahiro Tanaka, old friends and rivals from both the Pacific League in Japan and the American League, met in the tunnel underneath Yankee Stadium on Monday afternoon and chatted. The men have much in common. Both were highly successful in Japan, and both converted that into success in Major League Baseball. The big difference now, though, is that while Darvish has...

Colby Lewis Acts Like He’s Five, Accuses Baseball Player Of Trying To Raise His Batting Average

The Texas Rangers are in the middle of a bit of a rough patch — they’re 39-59 and are in last place in the AL West. Yup, they’re worse than the Houston Astros.

Seeing this, Rasmus...

Adrian Beltre Tries To Scare Birds Off Field, Fails Miserably (Video)

Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre is usually successful scaring other players away when they try to touch his head, but he was no match for two small birds on Saturday. Nobody, not even Beltre, could control the two bold birds who wandered onto the field at the Rogers Centre in the eighth inning of the Rangers’ game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Colby Lewis rips Colby Rasmus for seemingly no reason

You’d think a 34-year-old pitcher in the middle of his ninth Major League season would know basic baseball by now, but apparently that’s not the case. Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis took exception to Blue Jays outfielder Colby Rasmus bunting for a hit in the 5th inning of their game Saturday. Lewis told MLB.com, “I told […] The post Colby Lewis Needs to Learn the Game of Baseball...

Texas will keep its biggest stars, but markets strong for Rios, Soria

The Texas Rangers are conducting a sale of some premium players and are involved in discussions concerning very good players, such as re-emerging bullpen talent Joakim Soria and .300-hitting outfielder Alex Rios. But stars Yu Darvish and Adrian Beltre and very likely even cornerstone shortstop Elvis Andrus, too, won't be going anywhere. Teams have called about all three big...

Holland explains bullpen game called ‘Fart Bottle Roulette’

Day in, day out, game after game, relief pitchers spend a lot of time waiting around for the chance that their name might be called while sitting on their butts in the bullpen. The relievers, save for a couple of catchers and a coach, pretty much spend the entirety of games in isolation, separated from […] The post Derek Holland provides details of Rangers bullpen game called ‘Fart...

Still plenty of reasons to watch the Rangers

The chances of the Texas Rangers making a run at anything other than mediocrity in the final 67 games of the season are slim. The gambling site Bovada has the Rangers chances of winning the World Series at 750-1. Texas isn't even listed by the site for American League West odds. But that doesn't mean there's not a lot at stake for Texas over the final two-plus months...

WATCH: Rangers C pitches, showcases filthy changeup

It’s always fun when position players come in to pitch in MLB games. And on Thursday night, we were treated to such a feat in the Angels-Rangers matchup. Entering the top of the ninth inning, the game was out of reach, with Los Angeles leading, 15-4. This seemed like a perfect time for Rangers catcher Chris Gimenez to make his first major league appearance as a pitcher. And he...

Texas Rangers slugger Prince Fielder may not have what one considers the prototypical physique of a world-class athlete, but the proof is in the pudding, no pun intended. Let’s just say that the Greeks probably would not have carved Fielder out of marble when envisioning the ideal male human form. Still, despite his portly frame […] The post Here’s Prince Fielder nude on the...
