At this point of the offseason, only one team has shown a legitimate interest in free-agent starter Yovani Gallardo. It seems fair to assume that the Baltimore Orioles are serious about signing the right-hander, accepting the loss of their first-round pick.

Finding Yovani Gallardo’s Company

Why the Texas Rangers will play in the 2016 World Series

When crossing the borders into Texas, two things are made certain; the heat, and how seriously we take our baseball. It seems like every direction you look there’s a baseball field with a pickup game in progress, or a father and son playing catch in the front yard.
