Did the Texas Rangers Have a Successful Season?

The Texas Rangers lost the World Series in 2010 and 2011. Then they lost a wild card game, missed the playoffs with a 91-72 record, and finished in last place in the AL West. Yu Darvish was lost for the season and a team with a rotation of question marks lost its biggest source of confidence. Of all the years to bet on the Rangers, 2015 didn’t seem like a good one. While most...

Rangers' Derek Holland on Jose Bautista: ‘I don’t like him’

Texas Rangers pitcher Derek Holland didn't hold back while launching a blistering criticism of Jose Bautista during a recent appearance on KRLD-FM 105.3, calling the Toronto Blue Jays right fielder a "tired act." Holland's disdain for Bautsita is hardly surprising since he and his teammates were on the other side of not only the Blue Jays slugger's game-breaking home run in a...

WATCH: Prince Fielder wipes out trying to climb over dugout railing

Agility is not a trait that Texas Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder possesses.
