Texas Rangers: vital west coast road trip at hand

The Texas Rangers finished their home stand by sweeping the Baltimore Orioles and finishing 4-2 during the six games. The home stand started rocky with Shawn Tolleson blowing the save against the Toronto Blue Jays and being blown out in game two, 12-4. The team bounced back to win the last four games of the home stand, and they will hit the road for an 11-day 10-game road trip starting...

Rangers' reliance on Tolleson grows with each save

ARLINGTON, Texas –€“ Having earned saves in each of the last two games, Rangers closer Shawn Tolleson could have used a day off Saturday. Yet with the Rangers holding onto a 4-3 lead over Orioles, there was Tolleson again on the mound in the ninth inning. "It was a tough decision," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. "We've got to find an opportunity to get him a day or two down...

Rangers blow late lead to Blue Jays

The Rangers led 5-4 and had Tolleson, who was 25 for 26 in save...

SAGNOF Special, Week 20: SAGNOFs Lament

Here's what I don't like about SAGNOF.  Writing about crappy relief pitchers is a large part of what the SAGNOF Special is about, because Saves Ain't Got No Face sometimes means there are a lot of terrible relievers in a position to get saves.  The past week or so has been rough as we've seen Tommy Kahnle and Edward Mujica get pounded.  For that matter, the performance of the...

Bullpen helps get Rangers back to .500

ARLINGTON, Texas –€“ Short starts for a Texas starter have usually led to bad results for the Rangers given the uneven season the bullpen has had. But with a chance at winning a series against first-place Houston and an opportunity to get back to .500 for the first time in a month at stake Tuesday, the Texas bullpen rose to the occasion. Four Texas relievers held Houston scoreless...

Blown save dooms Rangers vs. Padres

ARLINGTON, Texas – Texas manager Jeff Banister said the Texas Rangers don't get discouraged by losses. Saturday night's 6-5 loss to San Diego is a true test of that. The Padres scored three times off Texas closer Shawn Tolleson, who was a perfect 13-for-13 in save chances this year, to steal the win. The Rangers haven't won consecutive games at home since June 15-16 and are 1...

Texas Rangers: Breaking down the bullpen shake-up

The Texas Rangers have had their early shortcomings this season. The offense got off to a miserable start, but has now turned it around. Starting pitching continues to be a roller coaster ride, but has seemingly been on the rise more than the fall. The one area that has struggled throughout is the bullpen. The performances have been inconsistent, the strategies towards opponents...

Tribe has no Answer for Prince, Throws Game Away Late; Rangers 10, Indians 8

The Indians climbed back from a 3-0 deficit to take a 5-3 lead, then did the same from a 7-5 deficit to take an 8-7 lead on Monday. But the Rangers eventually took advantage of two late errors by Indians pitchers to win the opener of a three-game set, 10-8. The loss ended the Tribe’s winning streak at six, but they’ve still won eight of their last 11. Carlos Santana (solo shot...

SAGNOF Special, Week 8: Heeere’s Carson!

Last week I recommended Shawn Tolleson, a player that seemed on the cusp of closerdom.  The closer's role is now his and even though they have a player in Keone Kela that is being groomed for the role (thanks for the tip, Smokey!), it is my belief that Tolleson will stay the closer until he loses the job by blowing saves, but that could be said of just about any closer.  This week...
