55-69 - Big inning proves to be enough for Rangers in 6-4 win over Anaheim

55-69 - Big inning proves to be enough for Rangers in 6-4 win over Anaheim

The Angels tried to Ranger the Rangers but the Rangers would not be Ranger’d Remember last night’s game when the Rangers allowed a bunch of early runs and spent the rest of the evening clawing their way back only to heroically triumph over the hated Angels in the end? Tonight’s game was kind of the opposite of that with Texas scoring five runs in the second innings as they batted around. Afterward, it was the Angels who starting to chip away at the lead over the rest of the game until they were within a run and ready to force feed the Rangers a taste of their own medicine. However,...

Why Rangers may join ranks of those experimenting with 'opener' rather than a 'starter'

ARLINGTON - Necessity brings The Age of Experimentation to the Rangers pitching staff.For openers: "The Opener."A confluence of circumstances may make Saturday the perfect time for the Rangers to join the growing ranks of teams trying out a non-traditional approach to handling a traditional starter's duties.Most significantly, among those circumstances: An attempt to rebuild Martin Perez. Originally scheduled to pitch Sunday on five days' rest, Perez could pitch on Saturday. He just might not start. Instead, the Rangers could start a reliever for the first inning, then bring Perez in to pitch...

Pablo Aranguiz shows he's ahead of the curve in debut with FC Dallas; Reto Ziegler suspension upheld

It could have been a disastrous debut. Pablo Aranguiz had never played a minute in MLS, but FC Dallas coach Oscar Pareja felt confident enough to bring him off the bench in the 62nd minute of a league match against the Seattle Sounders.In one of the league's toughest environments, on a turf field no less, the Chilean instead had a strong start to life in North America in a debut that hinted at a quick adaptation to MLS."The fans truly surprised me. I didn't think there would be that many people there," said Aranguiz, who signed with FCD in July from Santiago-based Union Espanola. "You rarely...

Three players the Cowboys may not have space for on the 53-man roster

Three players the Cowboys may not have space for on the 53-man roster

With the regular season nearing, the Cowboys will have tough decisions to make. These three players may not fit on the final 53. All in all, it was a successful night for the Dallas Cowboys last Thursday on the road against the San Francisco 49ers. Oddly enough coming out as losers of the matchup, the Cowboys were winners because they walked away from their first preseason game without injury to any of their main players. However, they also surpassed expectations when the first and second units were on the field. In the first-team offense’s only series, Dak Prescott looked comfortable...

The self-realization of Delino DeShields: Now older, he suddenly sounds wiser

ARLINGTON -With age comes wisdom.Delino DeShields turned a bit older Thursday and on Friday, sporting a wrap on his newly-fractured right middle finger, sounded a whole lot wiser.In what has become a disjointed season, DeShields, who turned 26 Thursday, landed on the disabled list for the third time Friday the victim of a fastball that kept running in on him during an abortive bunt attempt a night earlier. It caught just enough of his finger to cause the fracture. The Rangers recalled Drew Robinson to replace DeShields.Just another in a litany of misfortune in a painful and forgettable year....

Tyler Seguin should follow Jamie Benn, not Drew Doughty, when negotiating his new contract

Drew Doughty signed a massive contract extension with the Los Angeles Kings for $88 million over the next eight years. Tyler Seguin is going to be signing his own extension before too long, but he would be risking a significant amount of money by following the structure of Doughty's contract. Jamie Benn's contract is a much better model for Seguin to follow.Benn's contract guarantees him a significantly higher percentage of the money he signed up for than Doughty's deal because Benn's deal is effectively buyout proof. Benn is getting most of his salary, especially towards the end, in signing...

2018 Cowboys unofficial depth chart 2.0: Dorance Armstrong still third-string, Randy Gregory listed

Number two! The Cowboys got their preseason started last week with a great performance in San Francisco. We’ll get to see them in AT&T Stadium for the first time this season when they host the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday. As it’s the second game of the preseason the starters will likely play more, how much is obviously to be determined. Whatever the case we’ll be watching way more than just that, and now that we know the depth chart for this game we know somewhat in what order we’ll be watching it. Per the Cincinnati game gamebook, here’s this week’s depth chart. Offense WR:...
