RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Choo is finally playing like the guy the Rangers paid for

Shin-Soo Choo Rangers – Photo Credit – Keith Allison Please do not be fooled by the last two games by the Texas Rangers. I know they have scored 25 runs in the past two contests versus the New York Yankees, but no way can they be for real. Right? Well, think again. Yes, they still rank tenth in the American League in runs per game but that is only due to the fact that they started...

Can Yu Darvish Become The Greatest Ever Japanese Import?

Major League Baseball has had some extremely talented imports from East Asia over the years. Masanori Murakami was the first to feature as part of an exchange in the mid-1960s and, since then (albeit with decades in between), there have been more and more players from Japan who have graced the diamonds of the USA. As the sport continues to grow and produce high-level athletes...

Texas Rangers vs New York Yankees series preview

The Texas Rangers will go to New York and face the Yankees in a three-game weekend series. The Rangers enter the series 18-23 and 8.5 games behind the first-place Houston Astros. The team has been playing better as of late, but one aspect of the game is always off. Either the offense is shut down, the starters do poorly, or the bullpen cannot close out the game. The bullpen has improved...

Texas Waves It's Magic Wandy, Sox Lose, 3-1

(AP Photo)After dropping another low-scoring game at home to the pathetic Texas Rangers, the Red Sox are now proud owners of the worst run differential in the American League (-35).

Texas Rangers: A breakdown of Prince Fielder’s quietly great start

An American League leading 54 hits, top 20 in the league in RBI, and second in the league with a .348 batting average. No I am not talking about Mike Trout or Miguel Cabrera. I am talking about Prince Fielder. The big man has put forth some remarkably loud numbers in a seemingly quiet fashion so far in 2015. Fielder has placed himself among the MLB’s top hitters this year, but...

Adrian Beltre hits 400th homer, gets head assaulted

On Friday night, Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre hit the 400th homer of his criminally underrated career. After the homer, Beltre came back to the dugout, and was congratulated by his teammates…who then proceeded to touch the hell out of his head, a pet peeve of Beltre’s that has resulted in numerous tiffs with Elvis Andrus in the past.

Joey Gallo Is Coming…Soon

The meteoric rise of 21-year-old Texas Rangers third baseman Joey Gallo over the last year has been one of the most fascinating story lines in dynasty fantasy baseball leagues.

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.
