Thursday afternoon, I wrote about the Mets’ offense, and about how it’s been remarkably unclutch. It’s not the only thing that’s been going wrong for them, but it’s been a big deal, and it’s one of the reasons why the Mets feel like they’ve lost a lot of their momentum. Consider this a companion piece, as everything came out of the same research. If things were to keep...
Bawls and strikes: Rangers want Martin Perez to keep emotions in check when he dislikes umpire's calls
The Rangers would like lefty Martin Perez, who goes the mound Friday bidding for his seventh straight win, to be a little less demonstrative when unhappy with an umpire's calls.Perez said he will keep that in mind, but he said the show of dissatisfaction is aimed more at himself than the umpires. Banister said the Rangers addressed the difference between pitching with emotion and...

The highlight programs will show the Yankees' winning run coming across on catcher Robinson Chirinos' passed ball. Rangers reliever Tony Barnette was far more irritated with the walk that began the ninth inning and led to Texas' 2-1 loss on Thursday afternoon.

Pitching will be the Rangers' focus leading up to the Aug. 1 non-waiver Trade Deadline, but general manager Jon Daniels is still weighing whether there is a bigger need for the rotation or the bullpen.

Batters included Rangers teammates...

When Cole Hamels arrived in the major leagues, he had a 90 mph fastball, decent command, and what would prove to be baseball’s best changeup. That’s a few bucks short of an ace, and so, in two of his first four seasons, he produced an ERA over four and maybe was looking for something. Now, instead of having one elite pitch, the Rangers’ ace is the only starting pitcher in...
In what has become something of a growing trend over the past few years involving players and reporters, Fox Sports Southwest on-field reporter Emily Jones received a soaking Powerade bath courtesy of Texas Rangers stars Elvis Andrus and Rougned Odor following Sunday’s 6-2 win over the Boston Red Sox. The soaking spawned some criticism from MLB Network talking heads Joe Magrane...
Hoisting a Gatorade jug and pouring it all over the baseball player who provided a game-winning hit late in a game is nothing new. Bringing out a second jug and drenching a reporter is, however. The Rangers jumped out to a 3-0 lead and defeated the Red Sox with ease on Sunday, 6-2. After the game, when a sideline reporter was attempting to get an interview with Rougned Odor, he...
The Texas Rangers do not have many problems with their offense (although Prince Fielder is struggling to stay above the Mendoza Line), but there are some huge prospects waiting in the minors. The top two prospects, Lewis Brinson and Joey Gallo, each have a solid opportunity to break into the majors in the near future. With proven players planted on the major league roster, however...
It’s no secret that publicly funded sports stadiums are bad deals for taxpayers, but the new AT&T Stadium being built for the Texas Rangers is the worst. An investigative report by Brett Shipp and Mark Smith of WFAA-TV sheds some extremely disturbing light on the raw deal Arlington taxpayers are getting. Initially billed as a 50-50 deal for the taxpayers, Shipp and Smith have...
The starting rotation for the Texas Rangers looked so great a few weeks ago. Cole Hamels, Yu Darvish, Colby Lewis, Martin Perez, and Derek Holland (who has had plenty of great runs before this rough 2016 season) seemed like a perfect combination for a playoff run. Now there is a severe problem. Hamels and Perez are the only healthy pitchers left from the aforementioned group. Lewis...
On April 11, 1994, The Ballpark in Arlington, now known as Globe Life Park, hosted its first Texas Rangers’ game ever. That was barely over 22 years ago. On May 20, 2016, just over 22 years after the stadium’s first game, the Rangers and City of Arlington announced a new stadium would be built and ready prior to the 2021 season. That means Globe Life Park would host Rangers’...
If asked, any MLB manager would tell you that having a deep bench is a good problem to have. It's definitely preferable to not having enough depth, and it's probably closer to the truth to say that a team can never have too much depth than to ever say that it's a problem. The Texas Rangers' Jeff Banister certainly isn't complaining. The American League's best team is sitting comfortably...
