Texas Rangers record better than the numbers

The Texas Rangers have struggled early on. After 10 games, they are 4-6 and only a game behind the Oakland Athletics who are 5-5. The AL West is the only without a team over .500. They could be 5-5, if George Springer had not made a circus catch to rob the Rangers of a game-winning grand slam. That spectacular catch sent the game into extra innings and resulting in a Rangers loss...

Texas Rangers: is Anthony Renaudo going to be productive?

Anthony Ranaudo earned his first starting nod in a Texas Rangers uniform yesterday against the Los Angeles Angels. The 6’7” righty had a rough day at the office, giving up six runs in just an inning and a third, and walking two batters in his team debut. He fooled no one. The Angel hitters laid off the curveball and forced Ranaudo into hitter count after hitter count. His line...

Injuries Strike the Texas Rangers Yet Again

In what can only now be described as a comedy of casualties, the Texas Rangers added a few more injuries to their growing list in 2015. During Friday’s home opener starting pitcher Derek Holland left the game after the first inning with  tightness in his pitching shoulder. Holland never looked quite right during his one inning of work as his fastball  never topped 90 MPH. Also...

Video: In two swings, Adrian Beltre goes from foolish to fearsome

We already know that Adrian Beltre has a tremendous sense of humor, as demonstrated by how he’s reacted over the years to teammates and colleagues rubbing his head. The Rangers third baseman again displayed his (un)willingness to laugh at himself after spinning himself to the ground on a swing-and-miss at an Evan Scribner curveball. Swinging so hard that he drops to a knee is...

Prince Fielder wipes out after misplaying routine popup (VIDEO)

Prince Fielder had no problem doing squats with teammate Rougned Odor on his shoulders. But for some reason, he just could not catch a popup—which should have been a routine play for any first baseman—during Wednesday night’s game against the Athletics. Fielder had time to get under the ball and make the play. But he misjudged where it figured to land, and this was the result...

Watch: Russell Wilson hits batting practice home run for Texas Rangers

Russell Wilson has hit a career .229 in the minor leagues but somehow you get that feeling that if was as good at baseball as he was football…that he would be on the diamond full time.

The silver lining to Yu Darvish's injury

Yu Darvish is probably going to require Tommy John surgery. As Jeff noted yesterday, this is a blow to the Rangers already slim playoff odds, and now our projections have them as perhaps the worst team in the American League. After last year’s debacle, the team was hoping for a big bounce back, but that […]
