Texas Rangers: Where is the offense?

The Texas Rangers entered Sunday’s game owning a team batting average of .201, ranking dead last in the American League. Texas’ nine home runs rank 13th in the AL, and their 41 runs scored ranks 9th. The season is only two weeks old, but the Rangers offense is not progressing the way they would expect. Injuries are not to blame, the club opened the year almost completely healthy...

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...

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

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.
