The Rangers come in having lost 4 of 5, all of them close contests - including two that saw the Rangers give away 9th inning leads. The good news is that several Rangers have found their power recently, but the bad news is that the team is leaning too much on the HR. The lineup is populated with some young pieces so the focus should be more about their results and less about reaching .500 or second place.

On the mound we've got Gray, Hearn, and Dunning. The Guardians seem to be in the same boat as the Rangers, so this series is hard to predict, especially with the bullpen being so chaotic.

6:00 start times for all 3.

By the way, did you speak to Woody about how to move a runner from 2nd to 3rd with 0 outs?

Should've gone Spiders.

Woody said I need more skins on the wall before my input is accepted.

Woody could use more skins on the wall too.

This is the fastest player on every team

Rangers: Eli White, OF
Key Stat: 30.0 ft/sec sprint speed
His incredible catch against the Rays this week caught all the headlines, but it’s worth remembering you have to be as fast as he is just to get to that ball in the first place.

It's not a strange name, it's a stupid name. I refuse to call them that. Instead I call them the Cleveland Baseball Team. This is what I think of every time I heard their dumb name.

There was team called the Cleveland Spiders from 1889 to 1899. The Spiders would have been a better name.

Fangraphs definitely marches to the beat of a different drummer.

No Blaine Crim, Bubba Thompson, Zak Kent, Steele Walker, or Chase Lee

The Rangers ACL team has part of their roster live on its website. So far only 2 OF listed. I am looking forward to following Yeison Morrobel.

The two biggest international signing are in the DSL and they are on separate teams as the Rangers field two teams in the DSL. Anthony Gutierrez and Jose De Jesus.

Prospects Live came out with it's latest mock draft and they too have us taking Jackson Holliday. They have Termarr Johnson going 7th.




I really hope the group-think on this is wrong.

They have Ivan Melendez going at 73.
