Adrian Beltre is gone.

This is the first time I’ve written those words on LSB. It took me a long while to muster the courage to do this. Adrian Beltre is one of my favorite earthlings, and I will miss seeing him on the field (who else will jog in place right after a pitch comes a bit too close?).

Jeff Banister is gone and the Chris Woodward era is upon us. The 42-year-old takes the reigns of his first MLB managerial job...

Sullivan: Rangers to sign RHP Lance Lynn

You wanted pitching so here’s some pitching

It’s said to be a rather surprising three-year arrangement with a strong $30M guarantee, with MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand adding the financial details on Twitter. Last winter, Lynn seemed in line for a significant, long-term deal before he settled for a pillow contract with the Twins. After turning in middling results in the ensuing campaign, it did not seem likely...
