Holland was 'very upset' with how Rangers' season ended

The Texas Rangers surprised many in 2015, winning the AL West despite having ace Yu Darvish on the shelf all season due to Tommy John surgery. The work carried out by newly-christened Manager of the Year Jeff Banister in his first season in Arlington was impressive, but the club failed to preserve a 2-0 series lead in the ALDS, ultimately losing to the Toronto Blue Jays in five pressure...

Farewell or welcome back to Yovani Gallardo and Colby Lewis in Texas?

The Texas Rangers’ starting rotation was somewhat of a crapshoot in 2015. With Tommy John surgery striking both Yu Darvish and Martin Perez, Texas was left scrambling for adequate arms that could keep them from drowning early. The team entered the 2015 campaign with a rotation led by Derek Holland, followed by Yovani Gallardo, Colby Lewis, Ross Detwiler, and Nick Martinez. Derek...

Rangers' Derek Holland on Jose Bautista: ‘I don’t like him’

Texas Rangers pitcher Derek Holland didn't hold back while launching a blistering criticism of Jose Bautista during a recent appearance on KRLD-FM 105.3, calling the antics of the Toronto Blue Jays right fielder a "tired act." Holland's disdain for Bautista is hardly surprising since he and his teammates were on the other side of not only the Blue Jays slugger's game-breaking...

Rethinking The Starter: A (Im)Modest Proposal

It's October 12th, Game 4 of the ALDS, and Rangers' starter Derek Holland just got chased by the Blue Jays. En-route to getting pulled after the second-inning, Holland conceded a bunt single and two home runs in the first, but what if he didn't have to? What if, instead of Holland, one of the Rangers' better relievers―let's say Sam Dyson―pitched the first inning and Holland...

Blue Jays push ALDS to Game 5 with 8-4 victory over Rangers

Among the many reasons that the Toronto Blue Jays were viewed as a favorite to win the AL pennant (at least among the staff here at The Outside Corner) was their lineup’s ability to crush opposing pitching. Playing the role of Wile E. Coyote underneath a piano dropped from the sky in Monday’s Game 4 of the ALDS was Rangers starter Derek Holland. Toronto jumped on Holland right...

Holland undoes 'Wild Thing' haircut in effort to stop personal slide

Texas Rangers left-hander Derek Holland made headlines in early September by sporting a haircut similar to the one worn by Charlie Sheen's Ricky Vaughn in the 'Major League' films. Sheen even met Holland during a series in Anaheim for a photo-op. However, a string of rough outings by Holland has inspired him to do away with the 'do.  Apparently, as he told Evan Grant of the Dallas...

Despite 'terrible' Sunday, Rangers' Holland guarantees he'll be 'ready' for Astros

Texas Rangers left-hander Derek Holland had the type of outing on Sunday that might ordinarily be cause for alarm. He was erratic in his start against the Seattle Mariners, leaving in the fifth inning having thrown more balls (49) than strikes (43) on the day.  By his own admission to Evan Grant of the Dalls Morning News, Holland was 'terrible' - but he wasn't feeling the effects...
