JABO: What the Rangers Got In Sam Dyson

Thursday in Toronto, you might’ve noticed that it was Sam Dyson, not Shawn Tolleson, called on to close out the Blue Jays. Or maybe you didn’t notice — neither is exactly a household name — but understanding the usual dynamics of the Rangers bullpen is understanding a key team component that allowed them to charge to the playoffs. For the first few months, that bullpen was...

Texas Rangers: Jeff Banister for Manager of the Year

The Texas Rangers are officially the American League West champs. The heavily overlooked team which had a less than two percent chance to win the division prior to August 1st has proved us all wrong. It took some serious grit to accomplish the division title, not only did the Rangers overcome much adversity from 2015, but also adversity that carried over from 2014. Texas had the...

Jays seek to solve Gallardo in Game 1 of ALDS

TORONTO (AP) Pitching against the powerful Toronto Blue Jays can sometimes feel like suffocating, because it is hard to come up for air. ''You can't let up,'' Texas Rangers closer Shawn Tolleson said a day ahead of Thursday's AL Division Series opener. ''There's no getting past one guy and taking an exhale. Definitely, that poses its challenges. It's not an easy lineup to just pitch...

MLB Network doesn’t get much Game 162 chaos, but makes the most of the season’s final day

Game 162 was almost a bust. On Saturday afternoon, the Angels and Rangers were battling in Arlington. If Texas won the game, they would clinch the AL West, and the Angels would be eliminated from the playoff race if the Astros were able to beat the Diamondbacks on Saturday night (which they did). This would be a nightmare scenario for MLB Network. On Sunday, the network planned on being...

4 moments that changed the 2015 baseball season

It could have been one of the most memorable comebacks in Los Angeles Angels history, but instead it will go down as a mere footnote.

Texas Rangers: Epic collapse places team in difficult situation

Down 5-1 in the 5th inning, up 10-6 in the ninth, this was a game which held no certainty. Three outs away from clinching the division title, the Rangers went to closer Shawn Tolleson for the fifth consecutive day. Erick Aybar stepped up to the plate and knocked one just over the right field wall for a leadoff home run. Next up, Cole Calhoun crushes one deep into the right field...

Rangers collapse costs it chance to clinch

ARLINGTON, Texas – The signs were all there Saturday for what was supposed to be a celebration of the first America League West crown for the Texas Rangers since 2011.

Texas couldn't protect a four-run lead in the ninth inning against Los Angeles as the Angels...

That the Texas Rangers enter play Wednesday just one game behind the Houston Astros for first place in the AL West is remarkable considering they've stayed in the race this long without ace Yu Darvish (at all) and without Derek Holland for much of the season (until recently). It's also a strong endorsement of the efforts of first-year manager Jeff Banister, who's done a great job...
