Boxscore Breakdown #80: Bigger in Texas – Angels 8, Rangers 2

Everything is bigger in Texas, even the Angels offense. They hadn’t scored more than four runs in a game since June 19th, then they go and double that up in one game. If I didn’t know better, I’d say they were motivated by the presence of a former teammate or maybe the absence of a certain executive.

Rangers suffer worst shutout loss since 2003

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Two things that were apparent in the first 81 games of the season for Texas are still evident in the second half of the season. The Rangers struggle to hit against left-handed pitchers and they can't win in their own division.

Texas Rangers designate Neftali Feliz for assignment

After Friday night’s loss to the Los Angeles Angels, the Texas Rangers designated Neftali Feliz for assignment.

Series Preview: Angels vs. Rangers vs. Josh Hamilton

It is time to get back to playing baseball. We are all privy to the tumultuous off-field drama the Angels players have been subjected to over the course of the last week.

Home of Texas Rangers Slugger Adrian Beltre Burglarized; 2011 AL Championship Ring Stolen

Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre hates it when people rub his bald head, but many of his teammates like to do it anyway; especially short stop Elvis Andrus. Whatever his anger level is while getting his head rubbed probably pales in comparison to how he was willing when he learned his house was robbed.The crime happened last Thursday; during the morning hours after he had...

Texas Rangers: The good, the bad, and the ugly

The Texas Rangers have been all over the map this season. A questionable start in April, to a white-hot May, and now an abysmal stretch in June, the Rangers have been the definition of inconsistent.

Prince Fielder trips over first base in latest base path misadventure (video)

Prince Fielder isn’t the most svelte baseball player — not that there’s anything wrong with that — which in turn means he isn’t the most agile nor is he the most fleet of foot. But in the past week or so, he has stumbled through two bouts of comical baserunning misadventures. The most recent one,...Read More The post Prince Fielder trips over first base in latest base...
