Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

The latest news on the Rangers and home field advantage

Jim Cowsert-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning. It's comforting to know that in 2015, Angels fans have now gone to sleep sad about a loss for their favorite team as many times as we have for ours. That's the true pennant race.

Katy Clarke recaps the Rangers' 5-3 win and sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays over the weekend.

T.R. Sullivan's game story notes the unlikely huge contributions from Ryan Stausborger on Sunday as he filled in for Josh Hamilton against a lefty.

Jeff Wilson writes about the Rangers winning their seventh straight home game as they continue their weird season which is inexplicably in the thick of a pennant chase.

Anthony Andro writes that the Rangers have flipped the script by winning 10 of 11 at The Ballpark in a season where the struggles at home have been a major storyline.

Sullivan writes about Yovani Gallardo making in-game adjustments on the mound when he didn't have his best stuff yesterday.

Wilson has notes on the injured catcher duo, Mike Napoli's return, Josh Hamilton's status, and more on Derek Holland's attempt to join the rotation this week.

Football writer Rick Gosselin writes that this week will determine if the Rangers can make to playoffs or not as they must show that they've learned their lesson when it comes to beating bad teams.'s Greg Johns previews tonight's opener against the Seattle Mariners as Cole Hamels gets his third crack at winning one with the Rangers.

Lastly, Fangraphs now has the Rangers with a 1.1% chance of winning the World Series! I'll take it. That's almost as good of a chance as the Giants which basically means the Rangers are like a coin flip to win the whole thing.

Have a nice day.
