ELVIS ANDRUS RUMORS & GOSSIP
ARLINGTON, Texas Making a change for change's sake almost never works, but what the Rangers have been doing for six games isn't working, either.
The Rangers lost their sixth game in a row Sunday mainly because of a stagnant offense. The temptation is to shake things up, but manager Ron Washington would rather dig in and trust that things will turn around naturally.
Well, that game sucked. Honestly, that’s about all I can say about it. But I’ll try to find a few more words.
Poor Justin Grimm. He wasn’t outstanding tonight, but he was far from the worst part to watch. He had no run support whatsoever, but he stayed on the mound into the 8th inning, taking one for the team, I guess. He gave up seven runs on 10 hits, including two...
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus has been ejected in the sixth inning after being called out on strikes by umpire Eric Cooper.
After taking strike three from Toronto starter Mark Buehrle on Friday night, Andrus yelled at Cooper from the dugout. After Andrus was ejected, a bat was thrown onto the field from the dugout.
Jurickson Profar moved from second...
Elvis Andrus' two-run double in the 7th inning turned out to be the difference as the Texas Rangers beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 on Wednesday night at historic Fenway Park.

BOSTON (AP) -- Elvis Andrus hit a tiebreaking, two-run double in the seventh inning after earlier ending a 1-for-18 slump and the Texas Rangers beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 on Wednesday night.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia doubled in a run for Boston in the eighth, but Joe Nathan pitched the ninth for his 18th save in 19 chances.
Neal Cotts (1-0) got the win despite walking three of the...
DON'T YOU DARE
After the Rangers defeated the Seattle Mariners last night by the score of 5-2, the players were celebrating in the middle of the field and it appears that infielder Elvis Andrus decided to have some fun teammate Adrian Beltre.

FUN AND GAMES
It’s must be nice being able to play for the Texas Rangers, who currently have the best record in baseball (32-17). So nice that Adrian Beltre and Elvis Andrus can clown around in the infield for a routine pop up. Beltre, who is probably the best defensive third baseman in the MLB called off Andrus several time, swatting him off while Andrus was snickering, being defiant...
ARLINGTON, Texas Elvis Andrus said all the right things about not wanting to take Ian Kinsler's spot as the Rangers' leadoff hitter. But his bat spoke even louder.
Andrus was a career-best 5-for-5 while hitting first in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Tigers.
Andrus also scored three runs, drove in two, stole two bases and was a home run shy of the cycle.
It was his second...
STINK OVER INK
Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus reportedly will miss Thursday's spring training game because a new tattoo is causing him discomfort.

Written By, Clifford Santa Monica Trading Elvis Andrus for any reason is just plain stupid. You’re talking about a player just now entering his athletic prime who has “PERRENIAL ALL-STAR” written all over him. The Rangers, potentially, have two such players under one roof–the other being Jurickson Profar, a player who most scouts feel has what it takes to be a great player...
