Is Adrian Beltre the reason for the Texas Rangers success?

Think of your favorite sports team; now, think about your favorite player on that team. Are they the face of the franchise? Are they good role models on and off the field? If your favorite team was the Texas Rangers, then chances are the player you thought of was Adrian Beltre. Beltre’s teammates and coaches are constantly singing his praises for the player he is on and off the...

Cole Hamels Got Better in the Big Leagues

When Cole Hamels arrived in the major leagues, he had a 90 mph fastball, decent command, and what would prove to be baseball’s best changeup. That’s a few bucks short of an ace, and so, in two of his first four seasons, he produced an ERA over four and maybe was looking for something. Now, instead of having one elite pitch, the Rangers’ ace is the only starting pitcher in...

Gosselin: Rangers' 10-game lead not a fluke

Columnist Rick Gosselin recently held a chat to talk all things D-FW sports. Here are some highlights:Question: What are the odds Mitch Moreland gets traded?Gosselin: I'd be surprised if Moreland is here next season. The Rangers are stuck with [Prince] Fielder and his contract, and [Jurickson] Profar has given Jeff Banister some surprising versatility. I do expect Jon Daniels to...

The soaking spawned some criticism from MLB Network talking heads Joe Magrane...

Rougned Odor drenches reporter with Powerade

Hoisting a Gatorade jug and pouring it all over the baseball player who provided a game-winning hit late in a game is nothing new. Bringing out a second jug and drenching a reporter is, however. The Rangers jumped out to a 3-0 lead and defeated the Red Sox with ease on Sunday, 6-2. After the game, when a sideline reporter was attempting to get an interview with Rougned Odor, he...

Rangers’ Injury-Riddled Rotation Suffers Two Big Blows

The Texas Rangers’ starting rotation suffered not one but two major hits on Wednesday, as the club announced that starting pitchers Derek Holland and Colby Lewis will be the newest additions to a lengthy list of injured Rangers. Holland was placed on the disabled list with left shoulder tightness, and that may explain the struggles he has had on the mound thus far in the season...

Texas Rangers: Joey Gallo, Lewis Brinson updates

The Texas Rangers do not have many problems with their offense (although Prince Fielder is struggling to stay above the Mendoza Line), but there are some huge prospects waiting in the minors. The top two prospects, Lewis Brinson and Joey Gallo, each have a solid opportunity to break into the majors in the near future. With proven players planted on the major league roster, however...

Report: Taxpayers in Arlington getting shafted on new Rangers stadium

It’s no secret that publicly funded sports stadiums are bad deals for taxpayers, but the new AT&T Stadium being built for the Texas Rangers is the worst. An investigative report by Brett Shipp and Mark Smith of WFAA-TV sheds some extremely disturbing light on the raw deal Arlington taxpayers are getting. Initially billed as a 50-50 deal for the taxpayers, Shipp and Smith have...

New Rangers ballpark could be misleading taxpayers

On April 11, 1994, The Ballpark in Arlington, now known as Globe Life Park, hosted its first Texas Rangers’ game ever. That was barely over 22 years ago. On May 20, 2016, just over 22 years after the stadium’s first game, the Rangers and City of Arlington announced a new stadium would be built and ready prior to the 2021 season. That means Globe Life Park would host Rangers’...

Rangers' Deep Bench Is A Double-Edged Sword

If asked, any MLB manager would tell you that having a deep bench is a good problem to have. It's definitely preferable to not having enough depth, and it's probably closer to the truth to say that a team can never have too much depth than to ever say that it's a problem. The Texas Rangers' Jeff Banister certainly isn't complaining. The American League's best team is sitting comfortably...

Texas Rangers heat up with 9th consecutive series win

Coming into this season the Texas Rangers lineup was full of question marks. There were rumors of an early season trade for Jonathon Lucroy. There was the ongoing saga of Josh Hamilton. There was the looming return of Yu Darvish and if the team could stay afloat until he came back, the addition of Ian Desmond, and the question of where he’d fit in? But all the questions gradually...

Rangers GM says team may look to improve bullpen

The Texas Rangers have been playing good ball this season and currently have the best record in the American League. Considering they’re in really good shape as the All-Star break approaches, you wouldn’t view them as a team with many weaknesses. They don’t feel they have many either, but one area GM Jon Daniels says the club would like to improve is in the bullpen. “The...
