Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

The natives are getting restless - Brandon Wade

The Rangers are the furthest back in the AL West standings that they've been since April 26 2010

I don't want to talk about it.

Unfortunately for local writers, it's their jobs to talk about it.

Therefore, Todd Wills provides the Rapid Deflation to the Rangers' 7-2 home sweep loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.

Master Tesfatsion recaps the game. I assume from the headline that he writes about Derek Holland receiving zero run support. I didn't read it because I'm trying to be nicer to myself.

Jeff Wilson's game story is about the Rangers getting swept by the Blue Jays at home, and losing six consecutive baseball games, while scoring four times in the entire four game series.

Behind the DMN paywall, Kevin Sherrington writes that the Rangers should try wearing thongs to break out of their slump. I'm not kidding.

Anthony Andro writes that the Rangers held a closed-door team meeting after yesterday's game to address the June Swoon. The team was tight-lipped about what was said during the meeting so I can only assume that they discussed thong color preferences.

Gil LeBreton has more on the team meeting where he gives the impression that Ron Washington wasn't gentle with his words yesterday.

Behind the DMN paywall, Gerry Fraley notes that the A's come to town next in what could be a season-defining series for both teams.

In a DMN chat answer, Evan Grant examines why he believes the Rangers are not sweating the misfired acquisition attempt of Justin Upton last winter.

Tesfatsion's Notebook covers Mitch Moreland beginning a rehab assignment today, Jurickson Profar's position on having no position, and Justin Grimm on slowing down the game.

Wilson has notes on Profar's first start at third base yesterday, Mitch Moreland eyeing a Friday return, and Jeff Baker receiving a cortisone shot as the Rangers hope to avoid putting him on the disabled list.

Finally, MLB.com's Cash Kruth (surely a real name) previews tonight's Rangers vs. A's contest. We'll see Nick Tepesch take the mound against Dan Straily and hopefully the night won't end in resignation and sighs.
