Good morning.

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangers' 5-2 series-opening win over the Oakland A's last night as Texas became the first team in the American League to win 70 games.

Jeff Wilson reacts to the win and also the loss (of Shin-Soo Choo).

Evan Grant writes about Choo's broken forearm, courtesy of former terrible Ranger Ross Detwiler, and how the Rangers will try to deal with the loss of their lead-off man potentially for the rest of 2016.

In better news, the offense was shocked back to life by an Adrian Beltre grand slam in last night's win.

Ryan Posner writes about Martin Perez setting a new record for inducing double plays last night as his changeup begins to play again and Jonathan Lucroy's role in making him use it.

Jared Sandler looks back at Prince Fielder's career in his weekly wrap-up.

The DMN Ballsy Podcast gang talk about Ian Desmond's slump, Derek Holland's rehab, and Prince's retirement.

Posner previews tonight's contest between the Rangers and A's with Lucas Harrell making the start for Texas against Andrew Triggs of Oakland.

Finally, the only thing that really matters:

Have a nice day!
