The horrible, awful, terrible season is finally over! And we we’re lucky enough to see the Rangers end it with a three game winning streak against the in-state and all of MLB’s rival, the Houston Astros.

Ron Roenicke has been fired as Boston Red Sox manager after one season

The Boston Red Sox fired manager Ron Roenicke yesterday. Roenicke, who was the bench coach for the BoSox under Alex Cora in 2018-19, was named as manager after Alex Cora resigned (and subsequently received a one year suspension) as a result of his role in the Houston Astros’ 2017 sign-stealing scandal.

The Red Sox did not come into 2020 bearing high expectations, with the team...

Thoughts on an 8-4 Rangers win

Rangers 8, Astros 4

Rangers 8, Astros 4

Well, that’s it for the Texas Rangers in 2020. It was an awful season, one of the worst, in terms of winning percentage, in team history. I guess if you are going to have an awful season, better it be in a weird, abbreviated season than a full 162 game season. On the flip side, this was a season where .500 ball would have gotten the Rangers into the playoffs, so it is kind of especially disappointing that...

Rangers end tough 2020 season with something they haven’t had in years: a priority on young players

I’m not sugar coating anything, the Rangers 2020 season ends, and I think I speak for a lot of us in saying that it’s mercifully over. The club ends with the second-worst record in MLB at 22-38.

22-38 - Rangers say goodbye to 2020 with 8-4 win over Astros

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

See ya next year

The Texas Rangers scored eight runs and the Houston Astros scored four runs.

That’s all folks!

Rougned Odor bashed his way to a couple of dingers and the Rangers ended their season on a three-game winning streak which saw them even up their season series with the Houston Astros.

Unfortunately, the run differential tiebreaker goes to the Astros so the Silver Boot will remain in Houston. A devastating blow, no doubt, but the weekend wins...

Jeff Mathis ended his 2020 (and possibly his career) on a high note, going deep for 3 runs to put the Rangers ahead on at bat where he was supposed to lay down a bunt.

Shin Soo Choo still thinks he has something to offer in 2021 and hopes 2020 wasn’t his swan song.

Although if he plays next year, Choo probably won’t be wearing a Ranger uniform.

Chuck Morgan was honored by the Rangers during the game yesterday after 3000 consecutive games as the...
