Sunday a.m. Rangers things

Sunday morning Rangers news and links

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Rangers can advance to the ALCS today.

Crazy, isn't it?

Jeff Wilson writes that the Rangers want to close out the Jays at home, and avoid having to go back to Toronto.

T.R. Sullivan writes that the Rangers need to avoid a letdown now that they are up 2-0.  Sullivan has three keys for the Rangers to finish off the Jays.

Josh Donaldson got into it with Keone Kela yesterday, but Kela says he isn't changing the way he pitches.

Kela says, in regards to Donaldson being upset about what he felt was a quick pitch, that he (Kela) will throw the ball whenever the hell he wants.

Jake Diekman turned things around after a June demotion to the minors by "pitching angry."  Evan Grant, meanwhile, says that Rougned Odor's May demotion helped him get his swagger back.

T.R. Sullivan has a story on Rougned Odor, and has background coming from a baseball family.

Jason Beck writes that Josh Hamilton and Prince Fielder are the Rangers "sleeping giants" right now.

For some reason, in the middle of the playoffs, the DMN has decided to talk about whether the Rangers should move to downtown Dallas.

The S-T's notes talk about Derek Holland starting Game 4, Keone Kela's comments yesterday about his altercation with Josh Donaldson, and Tanner Scheppers' finger.

Sullivan's notes talk about Adrian Beltre's status, Kela, Delino DeShields, Robinson Chirinos, and Rougned Odor.

The DMN has notes on Martin Perez starting today, Chirinos, and Beltre's back.
