Nick Martinez: Ranger Under the Radar

When the Texas Rangers and Boston Red Sox square off tonight, most of the starting pitcher attention will be focused on Boston’s Eduardo Rodriquez.

On the same day the team suffers a sweep at the hand of the Minnesota Twins the team has announced they have acquired 28-year-old Carlos Peguero from the Texas Rangers for cash considerations. The move serves as a quick summary of the type of season the Red Sox have had thus far. During Spring Training, Boston...

Are the Texas Rangers contenders or pretenders?

If you had been running the Rangers in a video game, you probably would have started the season over again following the March and early April they endured this year. The injuries that occurred in rapid succession would make even the most ambitious GM sweat. Unfortunately for first-year manager Jeff Banister, there was no reset button and they were stuck starting the season with...

WATCH: Texas Rangers Slugger Prince Fielder Laughs His Butt Off After Beating Pick-Off Attempt

Prince Fielder has been on fire of late. The Rangers slugger killed the Indians Sunday going 3-5 with a double and a home run, three RBIs, and three runs. Not a bad way to follow up an 8-for-14 with three home runs, a double, a walk and nine RBIs series performance against the Yankees. So the hefty slugger had every reason to be in the zone against the Indians.That being said, even...

SAGNOF Special, Week 8: Heeere’s Carson!

Last week I recommended Shawn Tolleson, a player that seemed on the cusp of closerdom.  The closer's role is now his and even though they have a player in Keone Kela that is being groomed for the role (thanks for the tip, Smokey!), it is my belief that Tolleson will stay the closer until he loses the job by blowing saves, but that could be said of just about any closer.  This week...

Shin-Soo Choo Rangers – Photo Credit – Keith Allison Please do not be fooled by the last two games by the Texas Rangers. I know they have scored 25 runs in the past two contests versus the New York Yankees, but no way can they be for real. Right? Well, think again. Yes, they still rank tenth in the American League in runs per game but that is only due to the fact that they started...

Can Yu Darvish Become The Greatest Ever Japanese Import?

Major League Baseball has had some extremely talented imports from East Asia over the years. Masanori Murakami was the first to feature as part of an exchange in the mid-1960s and, since then (albeit with decades in between), there have been more and more players from Japan who have graced the diamonds of the USA. As the sport continues to grow and produce high-level athletes...

Texas Rangers: A breakdown of Prince Fielder’s quietly great start

An American League leading 54 hits, top 20 in the league in RBI, and second in the league with a .348 batting average. No I am not talking about Mike Trout or Miguel Cabrera. I am talking about Prince Fielder. The big man has put forth some remarkably loud numbers in a seemingly quiet fashion so far in 2015. Fielder has placed himself among the MLB’s top hitters this year, but...

Adrian Beltre hits 400th homer, gets head assaulted

On Friday night, Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre hit the 400th homer of his criminally underrated career. After the homer, Beltre came back to the dugout, and was congratulated by his teammates…who then proceeded to touch the hell out of his head, a pet peeve of Beltre’s that has resulted in numerous tiffs with Elvis Andrus in the past.

Joey Gallo Is Coming…Soon

The meteoric rise of 21-year-old Texas Rangers third baseman Joey Gallo over the last year has been one of the most fascinating story lines in dynasty fantasy baseball leagues. He’s the most polarizing prospect in the game today. A 6-foot-5 slugger who boasts more raw power than a nuclear reactor, Gallo’s top of the scales, light-tower power inspires almost as many believers...

Adrian Beltre’s dislike of having his head touched has reached legendary, mythological heights. If he’s ever elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, it should be mentioned on his plaque.
