World Series Preview: Texas Rangers vs. St. Louis Cardinals

It’s almost here, and this year, things will be different. The Rangers are going to win the World Series. It’s a bold prediction, I know.

The Rangers are One Win from the World Series


My little sports heart is going to need a cigarette and three months off (aka the Cowboys’ season) after this Rangers playoff run is over. Last night’s game was just another episode of the Nelson Cruz show, running concurrent with the Mike Napoli show. Those two guys both made huge plays that are getting overlooked because of their 11th inning ...

Rangers Win in Grand Fashion

I think it’s safe to say Nelson Cruz is out of his slump. With two home runs in Monday afternoon/night’s game, including the first walk-off grand slam in MLB postseason history, Cruz is now 4 for 7 with three home runs and six RBIs in the ALCS. This is after he hit just 1 for 15 in the ALDS, and ...

Rangers extend lead over Angels, Must Keep Winning


After a 5-1 loss on Monday to the Tampa Bay Rays, the Rangers division lead dropped to 2.5 games over the Angels. However they extended that lead back to 3.5 Tuesday night, thanks in part to C.J.

Rangers Control Their Destiny


A 4-0 win tonight over the Boston Red Sox has given the Rangers control of their season.
