You charge the mound because you’re furious. Because you want to hurt someone. You know you’ll be ejected, fined, suspended, but it’s all worth it for brief taste of revenge. You never do it thinking that it all might go horribly wrong, and you might wind up on the receiving end of one of the most iconic beatdowns in… »
Adrian Beltre really needs to stop doing great things, or he’s going to keep getting his head touched. And you know how much he hates that. »
This young Rangers fan got a good lesson in keeping his eyes on the game—and the value of reaction time—on this fouled-off pitch in tonight’s game against the Yankees. »
Baseball’s still on a break, so take a second to remember an unexpected feat that happened five years ago today: Bengie Molina hit for the damn cycle. »
It’s time again to check in on our favorite Rangers baseball reporter, Jim Knox. Tonight Knoxie spoke with a pair of Irish lads attending their first baseball game. They didn’t know much about the sport, but the duo did pledge to buy “every person here a good frosty fuckin’ pint of Guinness” if the Rangers made the… »
Prince Fielder rounded third base and fell in Tuesday’s game against the Dodgers. Everyone laughed at him. Even Prince had to laugh at himself. What a day.
Rangers third baseman Joey Gallo made his major league debut tonight, and I can already tell that he is going to be one of my favorite baseball players. Basically, every time he comes to the plate, Gallo swings as hard as he possibly can. This results in a ludicrous number of strikeouts, but an equally ludicrous… »
The Red Sox dared Josh Hamilton to beat them. With two outs in the ninth and the tying run on third, John Farrell issued an intentional walk to Prince Fielder to bring up the pinch-hitting Hamilton. It’s an old baseball adage to never put the winning run on base, but when the choice is Fielder (having an MVP-type… »
This happened during yesterday’s game between the Red Sox and Rangers, and it is further proof that hot dogs should always be the food of choice at baseball games. »
Josh Hamilton, who was called up by the Texas Rangers after a 12-game stint in the minors, will start for the team against the Cleveland Indians tomorrow. He will play left field and likely bat fifth. “We’re going to open our arms and give him a great big hug and welcome him,” Rangers manager Jeff Banister said of… »
Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre hit a homer last night, the 399th of his career, meaning it was time for his soulmate, Elvis Andrus, to attempt one of the most dangerous feats in the game. »
It’s official: Josh Hamilton is a Texas Ranger again. The Angels will receive “cash considerations or a player to be named later,” or, in the common parlance, nothing. They will also send along an absurdly large amount of money just to be done with Hamilton. And they deserve to lose every zero on those checks. »
Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre got worked over pretty good by Angels starter Garrett Richards on Friday night. Beltre faced Richards three times in six innings, and ended up with nothing more than three broken bats to show for it.
Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin came to the plate with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning during yesterday’s game against the Astros, and proceeded to whack what appeared to be a walk-off grand slam. Martin was probably feeling preeeeetty good about himself as he ran toward first base, until George… »
The Texas Rangers will be without the services of All-Star pitcher Yu Darvish for at least four months, as the team announced that an MRI showed Darvish sprained the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Darvish was shut down in August last season because of right elbow inflammation, but was pitching well and… »
