No, this is not a picture of a man being attacked by a jellyfish. It’s just Rangers utility player Hanser Alberto having a good-ass time at the ballpark.
When Shin-Soo Choo went down with a calf injury, the Texas Rangers called up 21-year-old rookie Nomar Mazara to take his place in right field. Through his first 19 games, Mazara has hit .333/.386/.486 with three homers, and last night against the Blue Jays he basically won a game all by his dang self.
Triple plays are generally credited to the defense, but as we’ve seen more often than not they’re created by piss-poor base running. So here’s an example of the Texas Rangers shitting up the basepaths as they manage to get themselves into a 9-3-2-6-2-5 triple play at the hands of the White Sox tonight.
Chris Tillman had a rough night. The Orioles pulled him after he gave up 6 runs in 5.1 innings of work. That’s nothing to be ashamed of, the Rangers can really hit and they’re in their home ballpark. However this pitch to Adrian Beltre is flat embarrassing.
The Mariners opened the season with a rather odd little loss to the Texas Rangers. Since then, however, they have managed to humiliate a presumptive AL playoff team to the tune of 19 runs in their next two games.
Felix Hernandez is one of the best pitchers working today, and until this afternoon, he’d never lost an Opening Day start. Thanks in part to the King’s dominance over the past half-decade, the Mariners had a chance to become the first team since the 19th century to win ten straight openers. But the Rangers beat them…
Here’s some depressing baseball news to start your day: The Texas Rangers have signed former Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond to a one-year deal worth $8 million, and Desmond will spend the season playing in left field.
Texas Rangers pitcher Cole Hamels has sued an entertainment agency, and accused it of taking his money and not getting him VIP access to the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in return.
The Rangers held the following contest today for those who put down initial deposits on season tickets: show up to Globe Life Park and smack a ball out of it, and the Rangers would cover the rest of the cost of those tickets. One fan, Byron Anderson, crushed it over the left field fence on his third try. 20 people…
The San Diego Padres selected Matt Bush with the first overall pick in the 2004 MLB draft. He was a local boy, born and raised in San Diego, starring at shortstop and pitcher for Mission Bay. But he never got any higher than AA ball, as a string of injuries then legal problems derailed his career. He’s struggled with…
I have three thoughts on Russell Martin’s throwing error in the top of the seventh, a baseball play that I’d never before seen in my life.
Blue Jays fans’ brief but furious seventh-inning meltdown reached a low point when someone from the upper deck tossed a beer into the general vicinity of a baby. Toronto police have identified the alleged beer-thrower, and he will be brought to justice.
So much happened in that seventh inning—an inning that took 53 minutes, and even without the glow of morning-after hyperbole, must go down as one of the weirdest, wildest, and most exciting single innings ever played—that its component parts (save The Bat Flip Heard ‘Round The World) may eventually be lost to the box…
Holy shit, man! An inning after one of the wildest moments in playoff history put his team down 3-2, Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista came up and crushed a big-ass motherfuckin’ three-run homer. He then unleashed the greatest bat flip I have ever seen.
Game 5 of the Rangers-Blue Jays ALDS was thrown into chaos by a controversial play in the seventh inning.
It’s no longer the baseball preseason. Time to get your ass fired up for the regular fall season of America’s Pastime. Read all our playoff team previews here. Today, you’re getting to know … THE TEXAS RANGERS.
