"The ship wherein Theseus and the youth of Athens returned from Crete had thirty oars, and was preserved by the Athenians down even to the time of Demetrius Phalereus, for they took away the old planks as they decayed, putting in new and stronger timber in their places, in so much that this ship became a standing example among the philosophers, for the logical question of things that grow; one side holding that the ship remained the same, and the other contending that it was not the same." - Plutarch

Yu Darvish is putting to rest complaints from two years ago that he is not a "gamer" because he kept losing 2 and 3 run games by hulking out and going yard.

The Rangers received three additional international signing slots in a three team deal involving Jeff Francoeur... and there is no way Jeff Francoeur is worth three international signing slots.

Gerry Fraley has some things to know about Cleveland as they come into town.

Evan Grant has some takeaways from last night's game.

Adam still needs to send me to High Desert, apparently before 2017, because I've got to see what's so awful about this place.

Adrian Beltre had his 2,900 career hit last night.

Yu Darvish's firmware upgrade included the Bonds plugin.

After looking like crap against some crap teams, it's now time for the Rangers to get their act together against some contenders.

Oh, yeah, Tanner Scheppers... remember him?

Jordan Bastian goes ahead and breaks off a little preview of the remix.

And, finally... this is just awesome.
