Except...

The Texas Rangers did not get their first win of the season until Friday night against Oakland. That is bad, but not as bad as how they have lost. They could be 3-1 if Sam Dyson had not wilted against the Cleveland offense. Unfortunately, the South Carolina product has given up eight earned runs in a combined inning of work. On Opening Night, he allowed three earned runs to give...

As a result, it’s been worn by only eight players in baseball history, as...
