Guilder Rodríguez Gets First Big League Hit After 1,095 Games In Minors

Baseball's expanded September rosters are mostly just useful for letting fans of non-contending teams get a glimpse of the future. But two weeks ago the Texas Rangers did something pretty cool: they called up 31 year old utility infielder Guilder Rodríguez, who had played 1,095 games with ten different minor league… » 9/22/14 10:09pm 9/22/14 10:09pm

Adrian Beltre And Elvis Andrus Continue To Be Hilarious

Adrian Beltre and Elvis Andrus, who are basically baseball's version of a buddy-cop duo at this point, put on another one of their comedy routines last night. After Andrus floated over to his right to field a pop fly in Beltre's territory, the two had a little tête-à-tête about who exactly needs to learn to stay the… » 8/26/14 9:44am 8/26/14 9:44am

Adam Dunn Pitched In A Game Tuesday Night

If there is a silver lining to a 15-0 game, it's the possibility that you might see something absurd, like watching a bear-man with 457 career home runs pitch in the ninth inning.

The Rangers Cap Off Rough Sixth Inning With Outfield Beanball

The Yankees scored seven runs in the sixth inning, the last coming thanks to this fielding miscue in right-center field.

The brush with… » 7/29/14 10:24pm 7/29/14 10:24pm

Adrian Beltre Gets 2,500th Hit, Unwanted Head Touching

Adrian Beltre collected his 2,500th hit in Tuesday night's game against the Tigers. (That's pretty impressive! He's only the seventh third baseman to reach the mark.) Miguel Cabrera was at first base to give him the ball and a quick touch on the head. Beltre, a man who hates having his head touched, did not appreciate… » 6/25/14 10:20am 6/25/14 10:20am

Miguel Cabrera Touches Adrian Beltre's Head; Beltre Flips Out

Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre hates when anyone touches his head. When someone touches his head, a switch flips, and he gets so angry. He's always been like this, and it's always been hilarious. So, when Miguel Cabrera touched his head during a break in play last night, Beltre was unsurprisingly pissed. » 5/24/14 10:00am 5/24/14 10:00am
