For the first time since the 2012 season the Texas Rangers are returning to the MLB postseason. That year they made it as a wild card team. This year they are the division champs.

Can the Texas Rangers avoid another late season letdown?

The collapse of the Texas Rangers in the ninth inning of Saturday’s game was one of the most gut wrenching performances they have ever shown. Only one game in their history is worse than this game and that is game six of the 2011 World Series when they came one strike away from being world champions not once, but twice. However, this failure to win reminded me of a more recent...

Texas Rangers: Epic collapse places team in difficult situation

Down 5-1 in the 5th inning, up 10-6 in the ninth, this was a game which held no certainty. Three outs away from clinching the division title, the Rangers went to closer Shawn Tolleson for the fifth consecutive day. Erick Aybar stepped up to the plate and knocked one just over the right field wall for a leadoff home run. Next up, Cole Calhoun crushes one deep into the right field...

Catch by Stubbs preserves huge win for Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas –€“ As ugly as Tuesday night's game against the Detroit Tigers was at times, the final out was a thing of beauty for the Texas Rangers.

Texas gun show: Watch young Rangers fan kissing his biceps

A young Texas Rangers fan and his parents had some fun at the ballpark Monday night when the boy flaunted his biceps for the cameras and/or for his own amusement. It's all about confidence and this kid (wearing an Ian Kinsler shirt, so he's loyal, too) clearly has it as he went for Round II even while sitting on his mother's lap. Turns out the boy's uncle is a cameraman and he...

Adrian Beltre on Hitting

There is no one single way to be good at baseball, which is part of why it’s so amazing. Just last week we peeked into the mind of a man with one of the lowest swing rates in baseball when we asked Joey Votto how he does it. And this week? Let’s ask Adrian Beltre. “I’m probably the opposite,” Beltre laughed when he heard Votto’s name. “I’m thinking swing first and...

Race for the AL West: Texas Rangers are in good shape

With the season coming to a close and Sunday’s game between the Houston Astros and Texas Rangers being the last home game for the Astros, I believe the Rangers will take the division championship. The Astros are horrible on the road and will have six road games to end the season, and the Rangers will play seven home games to end the season. The Houston Astros will struggle to hang...

Elvis Andrus, Adrian Beltre Remain Conspicuously Delightful

Besides the fact that they’re natives of Latin America and play baseball and haven’t died ever, Elvis Andrus and Adrian Beltre are basically carbon copies of mid-century comedy duo Burns and Allen. What the footage here — from, like, five minutes ago — what the footage here reveals is another installment in their ongoing series of amusing scenarios. In this particular case...

JABO: The Attempted Reinvention of Elvis Andrus

There’s no simple explanation for why the Rangers are in first place in the AL West. I mean, there kind of is, if you accept “they have the best record” as an explanation, but for explaining that record — it’s complicated. And the Rangers, of course, didn’t even look like a fringe contender for months. They’ve mostly come on strong since the All-Star break, and some...

Today, We Spell 'Redemption'... R-A-N-G-E-R-S

Yes, that's a less-than-effective "Anchorman" inspired title, but the message gets across.  It's a stranger than fiction kind of story, given the Texas Rangers' 2015 season being a strangely accurate parallel to San Diego's favorite 1970s newsman. Ron Burgundy's rise from devilishly-handsome mustachioed man who cared only for Border Terriers and fine scotch, to disgraced...
