In effort to jump-start offense, Rangers move Shin-Soo Choo back to the top

In effort to jump-start offense, Rangers move Shin-Soo Choo back to the top

OAKLAND, Calif. - The Rangers had intended to make use of Shin-Soo Choo's on-base skills to freshen up the bottom half of the batting order. It took only four games for them to change their mind.The injury to Delino DeShields left the Rangers without a true leadoff man. The Rangers experimented with Elvis Andrus there for two games, but Andrus has been the team's best hitter and the Rangers would like to give him more opportunities to hit with men on base. So, it's back to Choo."I need the on-base in front of our best hitter right now," manager Jeff Banister said. "Right now, it's all hands...

1-3 - Rangers win finale just kidding April Fools got you no they totally lost 8-2

Easter is canceled It’s the fourth game of the year and I’m already just kind of shrugging. The bottom of the order went 0-fer again until Drew Robinson hit a solo home run in the bottom of the eighth. *shrug* In fact, hitters three through nine went a combined 1-for-23 with ten strikeouts with only Adrian Beltre and Rougned Odor reaching via walks before Robinson’s homer. *shrug* Ryan Rua went 0-for-3 with three Ks as the Rangers opted to sit Shin-Soo Choo against a right-hander for Rua. *shrug* Rua, here because the Rangers don’t think Willie Calhoun is ready defensively, fumbled...

2018’s Most Improved Ranger -- Shin Soo Choo

2018’s Most Improved Ranger -- Shin Soo Choo

The aging on base machine appears to have another valuable season with the bat left in him. Opening day is finally here and the Texas Rangers have a peculiar situation on their hands. The Rangers chances of making the playoffs are generally assumed to be low and the statistical projections seem to support that thought. The long story short? The Rangers need to find value where there wasn’t much last year in many different places. The obvious answer for significant added value is from the young position players taking leaps forward, but what if I told you the most sizable improvement in...
