Tuesday Morning Texas Rangers Update

The latest news and notes on the American League leading Texas Rangers

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning. The Mariners really want to reach the postseason for the first time since 2001. The Rangers don't particularly care about what the Mariners want.

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangers' 6-3 series-opening win over the Mariners with Yu Darvish picking up the win to send Seattle back to third place.

Jeff Wilson reacts to the win with thoughts on Darvish dealing, a soft September schedule, and the Carlos Gomez experiment.

Ryan Posner writes about Carlos Beltran breaking out of his recent funk in a big way as he led the bats with three hits and a towering home run.

Evan Grant writes that Darvish passed another post-surgery test by throwing 110 pitches in his win last night and now the Mariners have to face Cole Hamels tonight.

ESPN's Mark Simon takes a look at the pitch selection Darvish is using to succeed especially since his second return from the DL in July.

Grant writes that while the Rangers wait for Carlos Gomez to click at the plate, they've seen him impact games in other ways.

Various notes from Posner include quotes from Jeff Banister on Sam Dyson's spotty command of late and the skipper isn't worried.

Finally...

Imagine how boring and pointless it must be to be a fan of a team that doesn't have Adrian Beltre on it.

Have a nice day!
