Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

RIP Oscar Taveras

Good morning. I know the Royals remind folks of the spunky 2010 Rangers but they're really the 2011 Cardinals and that is why you should hate them and root against them. This World Series is eerily following the '11 Fall Classic script. A split in the home field advantage city, road team takes series lead after the series moves to the other league's city, home team rattles off consecutive wins, while featuring a lefty dominating in a shutout victory, to move to a 3-2 series lead. Now the series goes back to Kansas City...Missouri. You know what else is in Missouri? St. Louis. It all makes sense. Go Giants! Avenge us.

I apologize in advance for the following.

The only thing out there today is this lengthy chat session with local curmudgeon Gerry Fraley. So I will briefly lift my Fraley link embargo to note this nugget of info from Fraley where he predicts that Triple-A pitching coach wizard Brad Holman will end up as the pitching coach for the Rangers in 2015.

So, there you go. Enjoy your day. Go Cowboys.

P.S. Feel free to fire Gerry Fraley any time now, Dallas Morning News.
