Report: Phillies, Rangers talking, but not close on Cole Hamels trade

Philadelphia Phillies left hander Cole Hamels was on the trading block all offseason, and that status remains unchanged as we near Opening Day. While no deal has materialized, this much is clear: Hamels is available. When the Texas Rangers lost Yu Darvish for the season after Tommy John surgery, they became, perhaps, the most viable option to acquire Hamels. Jon Heyman of CBS...

Texas Rangers: an American League Dark Horse in 2015?

The Texas Rangers are coming off a horrid 2014 season.  Last year’s 67-95 record has caused most experts to lose faith in the team entering 2015, justly so.  However the past is the past, and just like every team in mid-March, the Rangers are approaching the new season with extreme optimism.  The makeup of most 67 win teams generally includes a lack of talent, or a lack of experience...

2015 Texas Rangers Team Preview

When you describe the 2014 Texas Rangers, one of my favorite expressions comes to mind: the perfect storm. That best describes the Rangers of last season, a season that had high expectations after some bold moves made in the prior offseason. I admit, I had the Rangers winning the AL West last season. I loved the trade for Prince Fielder and thought the signing of Shin-Soo Choo would...

The silver lining to Yu Darvish's injury

Yu Darvish is probably going to require Tommy John surgery. As Jeff noted yesterday, this is a blow to the Rangers already slim playoff odds, and now our projections have them as perhaps the worst team in the American League.

Too Many Questions for the Texas Rangers

As we get closer to the beginning of baseball season, the team that intrigues me most of the 30 is the Texas Rangers. From 2010–13 they were one of the better teams in the league, winning 90 games or more in four consecutive seasons. They punched a ticket to the World Series in back-to-back seasons, 2010 and 2011, only to lose them both. In 2012 it wasn’t as painful, surely...
