Michael Lorenzen makes his Rangers debut tonight against Detroit. Since starting the season 6-2, the Rangers have reversed course and gone 2-6 their next eight games. Two losses to Houston, two to Oakland, two more to Houston. It’s been a lack of offense, no clutch hitting, very little power, bullpen failures and, just when they needed another great start from the usually dependable Nathan Eovaldi, he gives up five runs in six innings. Right now nothing is working. And their best starter to date, Cody Bradford, just went on the IL with a back injury. It’s the oldest adage in baseball: You can ..read more

Andrew Heaney walked four and allowed four hits in 4.2 innings of frustrating pitching. It’s easy to blame yesterday’s loss on a bullpen collapse. After all, that’s exactly what happened. Andrew Heaney was in trouble all game, walking Astros, giving up hits, loading the bases. While he was able to get out of it, he wasn’t even able to get through five innings, being pulled from the game with two outs in the fourth inning, with the Rangers up 2-1. Jacob Latz came in, allowed the tying run to score. Then in the seventh, Jose Ureña allowed seven runs to score to bury the Rangers. But the real cul ..read more

Angel Hernandez historically awful.

Umpire Angel Hernandez has no concept of the strike zone, calling three pitches far out of the zone strikes on Wyatt Langford. Welcome to the major leagues, Wyatt Langford. You will have the best facilities. You will have the best training. You will have the best accommodations. You will have the worst umpire in the history of umpires—major league, minor league, college, high school, little league or pee wee league. Angel Hernandez is a disgrace. He had disappeared from umpiring for a year, recuperating from back surgery. He was unable to recuperate from blindness and ignorance. The Internet i ..read more

In Jon Gray’s best start of the year, he struck out nine and gave up just one run. What happened to the Rangers offense? Remember when it was thought the Rangers were going to bludgeon their opponents with a lineup that was stacked one through nine? That hasn’t happened lately. Since beating Houston in the second game of the four-gamer 7-2, the offense has pretty much gone cold. They got two hits on Sunday against the Astros, not getting their first hit until the sixth inning, scoring only once in their 3-1 loss.  The next game they got five runs, but they were a gift by the Astros emerge ..read more

Cody Bradford tips his cap to the crowd after being removed from the game with two outs in the seventh. Who is the best pitcher in baseball? Who is 3-0 after three starts? Only one pitcher. Cody Bradford. Other pitchers are 3-0, but they’ve had more than three starts. Tyler Glasnow, Shelby Miller, and Luke Weaver. But the Rangers fifth starter, who seemed to be on the bubble, has had three great outings to start the 2024 season. Last night’s gem broke a frustrating three-game losing streak. Bradford pitched 6.2 innings, giving up one unearned run, striking out seven. More than anything, though ..read more

Where to ship Jose Leclerc for a few months. Royal Caribbean has The Ultimate World Cruise. It’s a four-month excursion that takes you around the globe, to some of the most remote parts of the world.  Imagine that: four months at sea, visiting eleven natural wonders of the world, more than sixty countries.

Josh Sborz winces after throwing his eighth pitch in the eighth inning. Josh Sborz walked off the field last night with two outs and two strikes on Jose Altuve under his belt. He felt something in his shoulder and he left the game. Yesterday was a harsh day for pitchers. The Cleveland Guardians announced their ace righthander Shane Bieber will need to undergo Tommy John surgery. Then, a few hours later, the Atlanta Braves announced the same thing with their ace Spencer Strider. Earlier in the week the Miami Marlins learned their young starter Eury Perez would need Tommy John surgery. The Red S ..read more

Adolis Garcia signs title, officially owning the Houston Astros.A MESSAGE FROM THE OFFICER OF THE COMMISSIONER OF MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL In a surprise move, Texas Rangers right fielder Adolis Garcia announced he is heading a group of investors who have purchased a 100 percent ownership interest in the Houston Astros. “Owning the Astros is something that I started thinking about last October,” Garcia said through an interpreter. “I made the final decision before yesterday’s game while the Astros were in town.” Garcia notes the final papers were signed in the second inning of yesterday’s 10-2 win ..read more

Last season’s golden boy, Evan Carter, is hitless in 2024. The season started last Thursday. The season arrives today. The Astros show up to The Shed for four games starting tonight. They’ve started off slow, winning just two of their first six, continuing their playoff trend of not winning at home. Their bullpen, which was called the best in baseball, has blown four saves already. They’ve become the 2023 Rangers. The old adage in baseball is you cannot win the division in April, but you can lose it. Like most adages, it makes no sense and must have been written by someone crazy as a loon. The ..read more

Nathan Eovaldi leads a Rangers rotation that has earned three of the four Rangers victories. The season is a week old. The Rangers have played two series. Two series in the books. Two series wins in the books. They are 4-2, on pace for 106 wins. A few things of note. One, Nathan Eovaldi hasn’t missed a beat. He’s started two games with one win and one no decision, given up two runs, and is pitching like an ace. Jared Walsh appears to be the steal of the offseason. All he did his first two years in the big leagues was hit and hit and hit. So much so, he displaced a legend in Albert Pujols. Over ..read more
