Tuesday Morning Texas Rangers Update

The latest news and notes on the American League West Champion Texas Rangers

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning. Tonight we find out who gets to come to Arlington to take their beating in the ALDS.

Jeff Wilson writes about the ever-evolving roster that led to a second consecutive division championship for the Rangers this season.

Evan Grant writes that perhaps the Rangers have a competitive edge when it comes to finding the right people.

Richard Justice writes that this season might be Jon Daniels' finest as he's further cemented his legacy as the guy who changed the way you perceive the Rangers.

T.R. Sullivan has quotes from Daniels about how proud he is of the whole franchise for their efforts this season.

Mike Petriello has a position-by-position preview of tonight's American League Wild Card Game which will determine the ALDS opponent for the Rangers.

Rangers fans were unsurprisingly dismayed by MLB giving the American League's top seed the shaft with the early ALDS games (not to mention Joe West's umpiring crew) but considering the Rangers have only ever been given the early games when they've made the playoffs this decade, it was entirely predictable.

Cliff Corcoran lists each Postseason team's MVP with Adrian Beltre named the most valuable Ranger.

Stefan Stevenson's notes include items on the Rangers still trying to determine of Shin-Soo Choo is ready and Adrian Beltre saluting the Arlington faithful.

Per David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Braves are interested in Ron Washington for their open manager position. Good luck, Wash.

Sullivan writes about the four Rangers remaining from the 2010 World Series team and how the only thing left for them to accomplish is getting a ring.

Dozens of ESPN experts have made their playoff predictions and *gasp* several of them think the Rangers will win the whole dang thing.

Finally, Landon Haaf looks at the new concession menu items the Rangers are unveiling for the playoffs which includes a tamale stuffed with a hot dog.

Have a nice day!
