Rangers Injury Update: Matt Harrison hoping to throw in January

Game won't be the same without Washington

ARLINGTON, Texas --€“ When things were going bad for the Texas Rangers and doubters were being critical of his team, manager Ron Washington liked to refer to his team as a submarine. He'd always say the club would resurface and there would be plenty of room for people to jump back on board the Rangers. Let's hope Washington resurfaces soon too.

Most overpaid players in MLB

Rangers' successful road trip gives hope amid injuries

Under the circumstances, I think it's fair to say the Texas Rangers just returned from a wildly successful 11-game road trip. All hope appeared to be lost in the aftermath of season-ending injuries to pitchers Matt Harrison, Martin Perez and first baseman Prince Fielder. Instead the Rangers suddenly have a foothold in the AL West. They are on the verge of catching the slumping Angels...

Series Preview: Angels vs. Rangers vs. Red Uniforms

For years, the Rangers have, as far as I can remember, almost exclusively worn their red alternates against the Angels (moreso in Arlington than Anaheim). What I haven’t ever gotten a satisfactory answer to is if that is just coincidence or if they do that on purpose in some sort of weird mindgame that only Ron Washington is actually playing. This has vexed me for years because...
