Through 81 games the Rangers are 45-36. Didn't expect this at all, but they are playing great ball. Interested to see what happens when Pence comes back, who will get sent down or cut. Rumor is C

I didn't think it was possible, but only 4 games back from that other Texas team. Wow. 

Why in heavens name would the Rangers sign a 42 yr. old left fielder instead of Willie Calhoun. The guy has no pro, or College experience what-so-ever. Geez, does anybody know anything about the guy.

Although, he does have 3 hr, and 11 RBI, somewhere.

Rangers lose their first game of the season to the Cubs 12-4. Is that a sign on how the Rangers season will be? ;(

Rangers have a lot of rebuilding to do, I don't follow the Rangers but do they have a good farm system maybe hope for the future?

Not according to most ranking services.  I've seen them as high as #16 by Bleacher Reports and others ranking in the in low to mid 20s. They are in a tough spot

Rangers get a big win. Delino teed off on that grand slam today. Cabrera is a stud too. Offense is showing good at bats right now. Pitching could be worse. Lol

Great way to start off the season. I have no issues with the lineup, but obviously the pitching isn't good as usual. 

The Cubs are no slouch so I was impressed with this weekend.

It may be just me, but it looks like Hunter Pence has introduced a large dose of adrenaline into this team. Choo  better kick it up a notch or Pence might just beat him out of his starting job. Jon Daniels better find some starting pitching, or it's gonna be a long year.

Last night is the type of game the Rangers almost HAVE to win if they are going to even think about being in contention for game 162+. When this pitching staff only gives up 2 runs, you've got to capitalize on it. Instead the Rangers offense produced 1 run on 2 hits and had ZERO at bats with RISP. That's terrible.

Couple of things:

I've been impressed with some of the Rangers pitching so far, considering the amount of no-namers they have in that pen. Shelby Miller did well last night.

I've been waiting since the day he signed his big contract that got him a horse for Odor to start playing up to it. He's to the point now where he's showboating hit by pitches. I'd like to see more production from him.

Elvis Andrus is my favorite Ranger.

The offense was much better last night. Pitching wise...there is only one way to go for the starting rotation. They have been ugly. No way in hades the bullpen holds up having to throw 5 & 6 innings a night.

knock on wood...yes, the Rangers are being patient at the plate (even Odor and Gallo)...and Cabrera has been really NICE so far! they fight til the end in every game.

man the @Rangers just spit the bit this weekend against Trout and the...well pretty much Trout, but that plenty. when you're putting guys on base in front of the best player on the planet and putting them on a tee for him...good things don't happen for YOUR squad.
