    The Rangers play 76 games against their in-division rivals. If those teams are weaker, then yes, its a factor towards a better record.

    You don't like it when we list statistics, okay fine. I'll...
  2. Rangers Off Season: What do you think?

    Its been quiet to say the least. I'm not one for blind optimism, but not spending money and making a few shrewd trades could go a long way to reestablish relevance for the Rangers.

    Newest Ranger: Anthony Ranaudo

    Picked up today from the Red Sox for Robbie Ross. Ross has more experience and success in the majors but Ranaudo was a top 3 prospect in the Red Sox organization as recent as last year with sterling...

    Even Newer Ranger: Carlos Corporan

    Trade went through this morning. Astros get Akeem Bostick, the Rangers 2013 2nd rounder whom they took because he would sign below slot. Bostick isn't a prominent prospect (I couldn't find him ranked...

    The core started to get older, so the team tried to re-tool. We still need to see this team fully healthy before we can say if that was successful or not.

    Yasmani Thomas

    Here's a good article on FanGraphs describing this new Cuban defector:

    Even though the team is looking for a corner outfielder with power...

    I think he thought he owed the fans an explanation of why he walked away. Because the team is mired in an atrocious season, some might think that the resignation was the ownership's version of a...

    I have no issue with you disagreeing with me, but I think your dislike of JD is a personal issue, because the facts just don't back it up. He made a few really terrible deals, sure (the Soriano deal,...

    Price is expensive. He's getting paid $14mm this year via arbitration and has his last arbitration year left still. Its almost for sure that he makes $20mm, maybe more, in 2015 and then asks for a...

    Rios wasn't dealt because the intention is that the Rangers compete next year and the weakest part of their team is the outfield. I will be very surprised if Rios's option is not picked up unless...

    Completely agree. In fact, this rotation is concerning me quite a bit. Darvish has a tendency to pick up those "general soreness" type of injuries and miss a start or two. I think Perez is incredibly...

    Second basemen have one of the steepest curves of decline of any other position. If he takes care of his body he can be a good player into his mid to late 30s, but the precedent is very much in the...

    Kins will see more fastballs in that lineup, and he's a good fastball hitter. But the main reason why I think his power numbers will go up, while his peripherals will go down, is because he will have...
