Saturday morning Rangers news and links

MLB: ALDS-Toronto Blue Jays at Texas Rangers Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports


I don’t want to do links this morning.

The Rangers lost to the Jays, 5-3, in Game 2 of the ALDS yesterday.

Levi Weaver’s game story talks about yesterday’s loss being the antithesis of the team’s Opening Day win, when they won 3-2 despite getting just 1 hit.

Jeff Wilson’s game story talks about the Rangers being in a 2-0 hole after Yu’s struggles and the offense not taking advantage of opportunities.

Evan Grant has “Five Thoughts” after yesterday’s game, and says the offensive woes in the first two games have the Rangers in a bad spot.

Stefan Stevenson discusses the Rangers’ inability to cash in on opportunities yesterday.

Anthony Andro writes about Yu Darvish allowing a career-high four home runs yesterday. So does T.R. Sullivan.

Gil Lebreton says that the Jays smell blood in the water after going up 2-0.

Rick Gosselin says the team’s “never ever quit” mantra is being tested.

Jean-Jacques Taylor writes that the Rangers inability to score has them in a hole.

Nomar Mazara started instead of Shin-Soo Choo yesterday because Jeff Banister felt Mazara matched up better against J.A. Happ.

Mac Engel says that the Rangers’ attendance is embarrassing, and maybe the team should move to Dallas.

Colby Lewis will start Game 3 in Toronto on Sunday.

In minor league news, Leody Taveras and Tyler Phillips looked really good in a game against San Diego prospects.

Levi has his Baseball Texas Daily for yesterday.
