Rangers Week(s) in Review — 5/29/12


(Photo Credit: Brandon Wade/AP) The last two weeks have been very meh for the Rangers. They’re 8-6 (including last night’s win over Seattle) since May 14th. That week (the week of the 14th), Ron Washington decided to hold the first of several “rest weeks” for several players.

Rangers’ Week in review — 5/15/12


(Photo Credit: Patrick Smith/Reuters) After losing three consecutive series, the Rangers got back on track in a major way this past week. The Breakdown Josh Hamilton is the big story here. If you haven’t heard (aka you’re sports oblivious), Hamilton rocked Balitmore’s world, hitting six home runs in the four game series. That’s not what’s most impressive though. Four of ...

Pudge Rodriguez Retires as a Texas Ranger

In the first of what will be a weekly segment throughout this baseball season, I want to discuss something I said in my Rangers Preview a few weeks ago: Meanwhile, after Josh Hamilton’s relapse in February, I’m getting the feeling that this will be his last season in a Rangers uniform.

Yu’s Shaky Start Ends Up Working Out


He wasn’t overhyped, nor is he a bust. It’s been one game, so let’s just all chill out. After a 42-pitch, 4-run first inning left Rangers nation a little concerned, the $111.7 million investment, Yu Darvish, recovered. He threw the next four and two-thirds innings in 68 pitches, allowing only one run. He recovered so nicely, that he received a ...

Texas Rangers Season Preview


This is arguably the greatest day of the year. The Texas Rangers begin their defense of the AL Crown, and look to get back to the World Series for the third straight season (and maybe they’ll just win the damn thing this time). I’ll probably never fully recover from the beating my sports heart took during Game 6 last October. ...

For baseball fans, these few hours before the first games provide time to sit and catch our collective breath after what has to be the greatest playoff stretch (Game 162-World Series) most of us will ...
