Rangers survive war of attrition in Game 1 vs Blue Jays

First, it was Adrian Beltre in the third. Then, it was Josh Donaldson in the fifth. Finally, it was Jose Bautista in the ninth. Those three superstars all left the Rangers’ 5-3 win over the Blue Jays in Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday, and what we know about this series could be turned on its head. David Price looked human for Toronto, perhaps the first time since his trade from...

Beltran, Beltre and the greatest active players without a ring

Carlos Beltran‘s season ended last night in the same way it’s ended in each of the last 18 seasons he’s spent time playing Major League Baseball: without a championship. Beltran, one of the greatest postseason hitters of all time, with 16 home runs and a 192 wRC+ in 223 plate appearances, did what little he could against Dallas Keuchel, producing one of the three New York Yankees...

The Rangers found themselves in quite the quandary after their monumental collapse during Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Angels.

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...

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...
