Texas Rangers Week 21 Recap: Sliding Down Hill

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Last week was bad.

Season record: 60-64

Week 21 record: 1-6

Series record: 15-15, 10 splits

The Rangers won just one game this week. A week that could’ve easily been a series win and a series split ended up as a sweep and a series loss.

Texas has now skidded below .500 after taking until the final game to figure out Toronto’s horrible pitching and never quite being able to hold Minnesota’s bats at bay.

It seems as though when the pitching was holding...

The dog days are here

Good morning.

T.R. Sullivan writes about Sunday’s 6-3 loss that saw the Rangers get swept by the Twins over the weekend.

Jeff Wilson recaps the loss where it was virtually nothing but oppressive heat and depressing defense from the Rangers in the sweep.

The DMN’s Chuck Carlton has quotes from skipper Chris Woodward following the sweep on how this rough stretch is as an opportunity to learn.

Among Sullivan’s notes is an...

An uneventful day on the farm

Not a whole lot of note today in the Rangers Minor leagues

One of the quieter days we have had on the farm this year, despite all the U.S. affiliates being in action;

Frisco’s C.D. Pelham threw a scoreless inning while allowing a walk, as he continues to show improvement after his miserable mid-summer stretch. Leody Taveras had a single, and Yonny Hernandez had a single and a double.

For Nashville, Wei-Chieh Huang...

60-64 — Bad defense, bad bats burst Rangers bubble

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Texas loses a winnable game and ends up being swept by the Twins

This is one of those games where if the team were in contention, we would be lamenting that it was one that should have been won that was given away. Playing out the string while out of contention, it’s just another disappointing loss, highlighted by a misplayed fly ball resulting in two runs allowed and a questionable strike zone leading to three more.

Player of the Game — Shin-Soo Choo...

Rangers Memories: Josh Hamilton and the 2008 Home Run Derby

2008 was a year of transition for me. I had just moved back to Texas from Arkansas where I had spent the last two years with my girlfriend. Those two years were painful as there was no Rangers baseball to watch. The Cardinals ruled in Arkansas. Oh, the irony in that just dawned on me. […]

With the Texas Rangers honoring Josh Hamilton tonight, a game in a season that doesn’t matter much felt like it mattered even less as the telecast was peppered with highlights from better times to make for a nostalgic feeling (Hamilton stopping to hug Nelson Cruz might be the closest we ever get to 2011 closure) for a time that is most definitely gone but very long from...
