Good morning.

Adrian Beltre.

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangers' 7-6 win over the Oakland A's which came directly off the bat of Adrian Beltre.

Jeff Wilson reacts to Beltre putting him in "rewrite mode" and the Rangers back to a 3.5 game lead in the American League West.

Ryan Posner's game story focuses on Beltre as he continues to rocket past all-time greats on the HR list to further establish himself as an all-time great.

MLB.com's Jim Duquette predicts that the Rangers will acquire Chris Sale for a package that includes Joey Gallo, Jurickson Profar, and Dillon Tate.

Cash Kruth adds Philadelphia starter Vince Velasquez to the ever-expanding list of pitchers the Rangers are interested in acquiring before Monday's deadline.

On the DMN Ballsy Podcast, Evan Grant talks about which of Profar or Gallo the Rangers are more likely to include in a deal.

Wilson writes on the sad news that Prince Fielder needs another neck operation and is done for the year. Reminiscent of Matt Harrison's plight, there is speculation that Fielder's career is in jeopardy as well. One spooky note: If this is indeed the end for Fielder, he'll finish with the same number of big league home runs as his father.

Posner previews tonight's contest between the Rangers and A's with Nick Martinez getting another shot in the rotation against Sonny Gray.

Lastly...

Adrian Beltre.

Have a great day.
