Trading Mike Minor or Lance Lynn would only add to the disaster that is the Rangers' pitching rotation

Trading Mike Minor or Lance Lynn would only add to the disaster that is the Rangers' pitching rotation

Kevin Sherrington, sports columnist for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered your questions about the Rangers in a live chat recently. Here are some of the highlights:Question: Even though the team isn't doing well, it's got to be nice to see Joey Gallo turning the corner doesn't it?Sherrington: Especially if you're the guy who wrote in the spring that if any of the Rangers' young players have star potential, it's Gallo. Also that he'd be a good bet to play CF if it didn't work out with Delino DeShields. Not that hard to see, really. He's the best two-way player of the bunch...

Thoughts on a 16-1 Rangers win

Thoughts on a 16-1 Rangers win

Rangers 16, Royals 1 Rangers 16, Royals 1 That was fun. Outstanding outing from Lance Lynn, who went 7 IP, allowing 1 first inning run on 6 hits, with 5 Ks against 1 walks. Lynn has appeared to pitch better than his ERA has reflected this year, but he’s at least got it down to 4.94 on the season. Lynn only went 91 pitches today after 3 straight 100+ pitch outings, including 118 pitches his last time out. With the game well out of reach, Chris Woodward went with Brett Martin for the 8th and Jeffrey Springs for the 9th, each pitching scoreless inning. One of this pair could be on their...

'I had no idea of what I was experiencing': Lance Lynn looks back on 2011 World Series as Cardinals return to Arlington

'I had no idea of what I was experiencing': Lance Lynn looks back on 2011 World Series as Cardinals return to Arlington

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Another reminder of how far the Rangers are removed from their World Series halcyon days arrives on Friday.The St. Louis Cardinals come to Arlington for a three-game series, the first time they've been to Globe Life Park since Games 3-5 of the 2011 World Series. Not that anybody on the Rangers active roster would remember. With the placement of Elvis Andrus on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, the Rangers don't have a single player from the 2011 team on the active roster. They do, however, have one player who played in that World Series.It was for St. Louis.And he's got...

Saturday morning Rangers things

Saturday morning Rangers things

Saturday morning Rangers news and links Good morning, folks... The Texas Rangers were shut out by the Houston Astros last night by a score of 3-0. The S-T’s game story talks about Lance Lynn pitching well for the Rangers, but Justin Verlander being better. Evan Grant’s game story talks about the offense being shut down by Verlander. After so many close ball/strike calls went against Texas on Thursday, Chris Woodward expressed his frustration, but also said he wanted umpires to realize the Rangers hitters are more disciplined this year than in years past. The Rangers have made a series...

Offense falls flat as Rangers muster just two hits against Justin Verlander and the Astros

Offense falls flat as Rangers muster just two hits against Justin Verlander and the Astros

HOUSTON - The Rangers did not get no-hit Friday night.Thus, ends the sunny part of our story.Houston’s Justin Verlander played the part of the smothering Houston humidity, holding the Rangers to just a single in seven innings of a 3-0 Astros’ win. Each of the bottom three hitters in the Houston lineup contributed a solo homer off Lance Lynn to account for the Astros’ runs.And, of course, our story wouldn’t be complete if it didn’t include Houston right-fielder Josh Reddick of taking away a potential game-changing home run in the ninth inning. Reddick did it to Hunter Pence Thursday...

17-19 - Rangers commit terrible crime of being boring in 3-0 loss to Astros

Yawnarooni The Rangers of 2019 promised one thing through the first fifth of the season and this was that they wouldn’t be boring. Tonight they betrayed that promise as they collected just two hits and scored zero in a 3-0 loss. Player of the Game: I mean, I guess Lance Lynn? Sure. Lance Lynn and his three home runs allowed was the best Ranger tonight. Up Next: The Rangers and Astros play another game on Saturday night with the starting pitcher for Texas listed as TBD. It will probably be Drew Smyly but who knows. Houston knows who they will start and it will be RHP Gerrit Cole. First...

Thoughts on an 8-5 win

Rangers 8, Blue Jays 5 Rangers 8, Blue Jays 5 Losing streak is over. Yay! Weird outing for Lance Lynn today...he didn’t have great command today, but also had some runs on his ledger due to defensive issues behind him. Lynn started the first with two quick outs, then walked the next two batters. He got Vlad Guerrero Jr. to ground the ball to third base, but Asdrubal Cabrera simply missed fielding a ball to his left, making what should have been an inning-ending out an RBI single. In the top of the 4th, having just been given an 8-2 lead, Lynn had a weird inning. Billy McKinney led...

Thoughts on a 14-1 Rangers win

Rangers 14, M’s 1 Rangers 14, Mariners 1 I guess I could just tell you to go back and read what I wrote last night, huh? For the second game in a row, scored in the first, made it a big lead by the middle innings, and poured on some extra runs late. And for the second game in a row, the Ranger starter made in through 7 innings while allowing just a single run. Today it was Lance Lynn who went 7 IP for Texas. Lynn struggled with his command early, and it looked like he was questionable to make it through five after walking three and giving up an infield single in the first two innings,...

The Rangers' bats erupted in Seattle, but don't overlook Texas' starting pitching in series win

The Rangers' bats erupted in Seattle, but don't overlook Texas' starting pitching in series win

SEATTLE - What shouldn’t be lost in the Rangers’ offensive outburst over the weekend: The Rangers starting pitching.And at the center of the starting pitching’s success was a willingness to deviate from old norms. Namely, Mike Minor made his elite spin-rate fastball a more dangerous weapon by wielding it more strategically rather than more often. And even Lance Lynn, who has pretty much thrown fastballs and nothing else his entire career tried balancing out his pitch usage.In beating Seattle 15-1 Saturday and 14-1 Sunday, Minor and Lynn combined for 22 strikeouts and just eight hits...
