Jonathan Lucroy had a chance to play in the World Series this year.He didn't know it at the time, of course, when the Milwaukee Brewers had agreed in principle on a trade that would have sent him to Cleveland this summer, a deal that fell through when Lucroy used a clause in his contract to veto the trade.Instead of going to the Indians and winning the A.L. pennant, Lucroy was traded...

The punch. The Canadian crush. The throwaway. Those are the three moments that Rougned Odor will be known for in 2016. The first moment made the Texas Rangers a permanent rival of the Toronto Blue Jays, while the other two show how one player can go from hero to zero in the same contest and how unpredictable sports can be. The 22-year-old Venezuelan had as eventful of a season as...

In a piece today, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News calls upon the Rangers to commit to a path with young slugger Joey Gallo this winter. It’s a major question for Texas, with several possible strategies, so it seems worth posing the matter to MLBTR’s readers. Though he’s still just 22 years of age, and continues to carry jaw-dropping power potential, Gallo wasn’t deemed...

The Texas Rangers plan to build a brand new baseball stadium in Arlington on the promise of splitting the cost 50/50, costing the city roughly $500 million. A big swing and a miss on that estimate, says WFAA in Arlington. The original cost of the stadium was said to be $1 billion, but an investigative study by WFAA reveals the total cost of the stadium could rise to $1.675 billion...
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) General manager Jon Daniels expects more postseason chances for the Texas Rangers to pursue that elusive World Series title. While the Rangers lost in the AL Division Series to Toronto for the second consecutive year, this time getting swept, Daniels said Tuesday that he doesn't buy into any contention that there could be a shrinking window of opportunity...

There’s no such thing as a good way to lose in the playoffs, but the worst way might be getting swept in the first round. It also might not, I don’t know, but it can feel so unfairly abrupt. The Rangers spent six months working on building the best record in the entire American League. It all came to an end in three games. That quickly, the mental calendar flips, and after another...
Prior to Game 3 of the ALDS between the Blue Jays and Rangers, one Canadian politician was extremely confident the Blue Jays would end the series on Sunday. A few hours before game time, Toronto councillor Norm Kelly sent a tweet directed at the Rangers with a photo of a brunch of brooms, indicating the Blue Jays would sweep the Rangers. .@Rangers pic.twitter.com/uCzNU0DnDk ...
The Texas Rangers find themselves down two games to zero in the ALDS. A generally confident and collective bunch, the Rangers must be cringing after letting Toronto push them around in both games. Looking back on the two games, the analysis is simple, one team has maintained their identity, the other has strayed from theirs. Toronto conquers opponents by hitting home runs. They did...
You get into a bubble sometimes. Even when that bubble doesn’t look like other bubbles, it’s there insulating you from seeing something you should see. I’m always looking for that new thing, that change, that great new pitcher, that guy overperforming his expectations. That’s the fun thing to look at! An ace, pitching like an ace again, with wipeout stuff? Huh. Somehow, that...
There not surprisingly remains considerable animosity on the behalf of Texas Rangers fans toward Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista. And before the teams squared off in Game 1 of their ALDS series Thursday, Rangers fans had the opportunity to “punch” Bautista via a cardboard cutout. Originally appearing on reddit, photos surfaced on social media of fans replacing the...
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Yu Darvish ended his first season with the Texas Rangers starting a postseason game. The right-hander from Japan hasn't pitched in October since that wild-card game in 2012.After missing the 2015 season recovering from Tommy John surgery, Darvish will make his AL Division Series debut Friday when he starts Game 2 against the Toronto Blue Jays."It's a great...

The Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays are about to rekindle their newfound rivalry, and the Texas media is in on it. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram challenged Blue Jays star – and center of controversy – Jose Bautista with their Thursday morning sports headline.

Honestly, I’m fine with just a plain old hot dog or sausage and an order of fries followed by a treat of ice cream in a helmet (because I’m eight years old, apparently), but I must say I am always out on the lookout for unique stadium food to sink my teeth into. With that being the case, I wouldn’t mind placing an order for some of the new menu items being offered by the Texas...
The Texas Rangers head into the postseason with home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. While playing more than half of their games at home is a special plus, they must take advantage of the opportunity and turn it into a championship. That mission begins at the top, and the Rangers could certainly use some better pitching at the top of their rotation. Despite having another...
As you’re no doubt aware, it’s been a hell of a season in Texas. The Rangers own the best record in the American League, with the eighth-best run differential. They’ve destroyed their Pythagorean record, which has caused them to destroy their BaseRuns record. Much of this has been fueled by historic success in one-run games, and much of that has been fueled by historically...
