Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

The latest news and notes on the American League best Texas Rangers

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning. Do you want revenge on the Blue Jays or would you rather make Buck Showalter sad?

Levi Weaver recaps yesterday's finale which essentially amounted to a spring training game in October as the Rangers prep for the Postseason.

Jeff Wilson reacts to Sunday's regular season finale while thinking about Baltimore or Toronto and the possible playoff roster.

T.R. Sullivan writes that the Rangers are focused on winning rather than hoping for any particular match-up as they await their ALDS opponent.

Jared Sandler makes his playoff 25-man roster prediction with Delino DeShields as the odd man out.

Sullivan takes a look at the ALDS roster options and what the Rangers are pondering ahead of announcing their plans.

Gil LeBreton writes, however, that though the Rangers have three days to finalize their roster, they shouldn't get too cute about it.

Evan Grant writes that with the possibility of playing the Blue Jays in the ALDS again this season, it's a good time to look at how Elvis Andrus used last October's letdown to fuel his turnaround 2016 campaign.

Stefan Stevenson has a month-by-month breakdown of how the Rangers traversed the American League to return to the playoffs this year.

Anthony Castrovince has some preliminary playoff predictions and sticks with the Rangers as his American League Champion pick.

Among other notes, Stevenson writes that the adorable left-side-of-infield duo of Elvis Andrus (.302) and Adrian Beltre (.300) each finished the season with batting averages at .300 or better.

Finally, here's the MLB Postseason schedule (times not yet determined but you can bet that the Rangers will play at a time that pisses you off).

Have a nice day!
