Maybe that would have been the case if Tanner Scheppers could have avoided the big inning, as Houston scored five times in the fourth inning Saturday. Maybe that would have been the case if Alex Rios wouldn't have run the Rangers out of...

Alex Rios vs. Shin-Soo Choo, which Ranger would you rather?

While neither Alex Rios or Shin-Soo Choo have been with the Texas Rangers for long, each factors significantly into the team’s offense for 2014 and each will find themselves as an ‘OF2′ on most fantasy baseball teams this year as a result.

Player Profile #36: Alex Rios | OF | TEX

I’ll never understand why Alex Rios isn’t a more sought-after commodity. He’s finished each of the last two seasons ranked 16th overall, and aside for an awful 2011 season, he’s been money in the bank every year of his career. He’s topped 30 combined HR and SB in seven of the last eight years and he’s topped 40 in five of the last six. When it comes to balanced counting...

The mood around the south side got a little more jovial today when it was announced that the White...
