Boxscore Breakdown #156: Unappreciated – Rangers 2, Angels 1

This was supposed to be Fan Appreciation Day, but it didn’t quite work out that way, did it? Not only was it the lowest attended home game of the year for the Angels, but the Halos themselves didn’t do much to show their appreciation. Oh, sure, there was probably some in-park stuff that the PR team did and showed on the big screen, but the performance on the field left this reviewer...

Boxscore Breakdown #155: Weaver Believer – Angels 8, Rangers 5

Weaver went and did it again. He pitched well and did so with that little extra notch of velocity. After his previous start, I thought it might’ve been a fluke, but he was able to repeat and sustain the change in this one. After the game, he claimed it came from his shoulder feeling healthy and returning to more of a three-quarters arm slot. This isn’t the first time he’s alluded...

Rangers Rumors: Colby Lewis may return next season

It's no secret that the Texas Rangers have had a miserable season, and much of it has had to do with the low quality of starting pitching. The Rangers will almost certainly be looking for pieces to add to their rotation in the offseason. Other than Yu Darvish, Colby Lewis started the most games for the Rangers, as the team used a league-high number of pitchers during the season...
