Adrian Beltre and Elvis Andrus Can’t Get Enough of Prince Fielder’s Dance Moves

After a disappointing, injury-plagued 2014 season, Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder is back in form and showing signs of his old self.

Watch: Elvis Andrus must touch Adrian Beltre’s head after home run

Adrian Beltre’s dislike of having his head touched has reached legendary, mythological heights. If he’s ever elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, it should be mentioned on his plaque. (Someone needs to rush the podium and go for a head-rub in Cooperstown too.) One reason that we haven’t forgotten about Beltre’s bizarre hang-up, that it continues to live on in baseball lore...

Elvis Andrus Messed With Adrian Beltre’s Head (Again)

It hasn’t been a great start to the 2015 season for Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre — offensively, at least. The slugger entered Monday slashing just .236/.274/.386 with three home runs and eight RBI. However, the slugger did show some signs of life in the power department tonight against Royals lefty Danny Duffy, blasting career home run No. 399. Expectedly, Beltre was...

The Texas Rangers are headed in the right direction

Slowly but surely, the Texas Rangers are showing signs of improvement. The bats aren’t yet steaming, but they are definitely warming, and starting pitching has improved in terms of quality, but not quite length.

Will Elvis Andrus Rebound in 2015?

The Rangers number two hitter hit just .263 with an on-base percentage of .314, both career lows.

Since breaking into the majors in 2009, Elvis Andrus has tallied the sixth-most PA in baseball with 3,974, or 662 per season.

I say mostly because whatever dreck the Rangers were trotting out last...
