Texas Rangers: Behind “The Field Judge”

The punch. The Canadian crush. The throwaway. Those are the three moments that Rougned Odor will be known for in 2016. The first moment made the Texas Rangers a permanent rival of the Toronto Blue Jays, while the other two show how one player can go from hero to zero in the same contest and how unpredictable sports can be. The 22-year-old Venezuelan had as eventful of a season as...

Poll: What Should The Rangers Do With Joey Gallo?

In a piece today, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News calls upon the Rangers to commit to a path with young slugger Joey Gallo this winter. It’s a major question for Texas, with several possible strategies, so it seems worth posing the matter to MLBTR’s readers.

New Rangers stadium could cost Arlington more than expected

The Texas Rangers plan to build a brand new baseball stadium in Arlington on the promise of splitting the cost 50/50, costing the city roughly $500 million. A big swing and a miss on that estimate, says WFAA in Arlington. The original cost of the stadium was said to be $1 billion, but an investigative study by WFAA reveals the total cost of the stadium could rise to $1.675 billion...

Projecting the Offseason

Whether we like it or not, the 2016 is over for the Texas Rangers. And as such, rather than wait around on the rest of the postseason to play out, it seemed to be a good time to take a look at the projected payroll situation heading into the winter.In 2016, the Rangers opened with a payroll of $158 million, and with service-time adjustments as well as in-season trades, the actual...

The Rangers Are Facing a Difficult Winter

There’s no such thing as a good way to lose in the playoffs, but the worst way might be getting swept in the first round. It also might not, I don’t know, but it can feel so unfairly abrupt. The Rangers spent six months working on building the best record in the entire American League. It all came to an end in three games. That quickly, the mental calendar flips, and after another...

Texas Rangers blindsided in opening games of ALDS

The Texas Rangers find themselves down two games to zero in the ALDS. A generally confident and collective bunch, the Rangers must be cringing after letting Toronto push them around in both games. Looking back on the two games, the analysis is simple, one team has maintained their identity, the other has strayed from theirs. Toronto conquers opponents by hitting home runs. They did...

Even Yu Darvish Makes Adjustments

You get into a bubble sometimes. Even when that bubble doesn’t look like other bubbles, it’s there insulating you from seeing something you should see. I’m always looking for that new thing, that change, that great new pitcher, that guy overperforming his expectations. That’s the fun thing to look at! An ace, pitching like an ace again, with wipeout stuff? Huh. Somehow, that...

Texas Rangers show off new postseason menu sure to give you heartburn

Honestly, I’m fine with just a plain old hot dog or sausage and an order of fries followed by a treat of ice cream in a helmet (because I’m eight years old, apparently), but I must say I am always out on the lookout for unique stadium food to sink my teeth into. With that being the case, I wouldn’t mind placing an order for some of the new menu items being offered by the Texas...

Texas Rangers: Time for Cole Hamels to fight back

The Texas Rangers head into the postseason with home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. While playing more than half of their games at home is a special plus, they must take advantage of the opportunity and turn it into a championship. That mission begins at the top, and the Rangers could certainly use some better pitching at the top of their rotation. Despite having another...

One More Incredible Rangers Statistic

As you’re no doubt aware, it’s been a hell of a season in Texas. The Rangers own the best record in the American League, with the eighth-best run differential. They’ve destroyed their Pythagorean record, which has caused them to destroy their BaseRuns record. Much of this has been fueled by historic success in one-run games, and much of that has been fueled by historically...
