Texas Rangers Week Three Recap + Series Preview

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports Looking back at the week that was, and forward to the series against the M’s starting this evening Season record: 6-8 Week 3 record: 3-3 Series record: 1-3, 1 split Well would you look at that! Not just a series win, but a sweep! In all seriousness, if the Rangers didn’t win the series against the Angels, that would’ve been pretty damning for them, considering how atrocious the Angels have beenthis season. It wasn’t unexpected that the Rangers got swept by Oakland, as the A’s came in as playoff favorites and have started off hot this season. The...

Texas Rangers Week Two Recap

Texas Rangers Week Two Recap

Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports A split at home followed by losing two of three at the Bay Season record: 3-5 Week 2 record: 2-3 Series record: 0-2, 1 split The Rangers winning one game per series isn’t ideal nor is it gonna get them very far in this extremely condensed season, even though technically they’re in fourth place because the Angels have two more losses. In taking the last game of each series this week, the Rangers looked like a different team in their wins as compared to their losses. Other than in the two wins, the bats have been cold and the defense has been...

Texas Rangers Opening Weekend Recap

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Not the best start to the season Season record: 1-2 Week 1 record: 1-2 Series record: 0-1 It’s gonna up to the pitchers to keep the Rangers head above water, especially in a shortened season, and based off the first series of the season, they might have to drag the rest of the team to the end. Yes they’re playing 60 games this season, and compared to normal seasons, every game really feels like it counts. Even the first week’s worth. Where usually we have a full month before we can truly judge a team, we don’t have that luxury this season. Players...

2020 Texas Rangers Opening Series Preview

2020 Texas Rangers Opening Series Preview

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Opening Day — Better late than never It’s the end of July and we finally get to see Opening Day at the new ballpark! Who would’ve thought we’d get here? The Texas Rangers will open the 2020 season against the Colorado Rockies, their “interleague rival” according to MLB who decided when it came to interleague play teams would play their rival six games out of the 20 games. Since Oakland and San Francisco and the Dodgers and Angels are natural rivals, it kinda ruined for the rest of the West but here we are. Now we’ve already seen these two teams...

Do results/stats matter in the 2020 season?

Do results/stats matter in the 2020 season?

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Should we pay any attention to the numbers from a weird 60 game season? With the potential 2020 season getting closer, I’m curious to know what the thoughts are on this season and its relevance in the overall scheme of franchise histories and individual player’s performance. Does this season need an asterisk next to it. With just 60 games — less than half the season — to be played, do the stats truly add or take away value for a team or player? If a 2019 playoff team just absolutely tanks, does it feel the same as if they tanked in a 162 game...
