Good morning.

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangers' 3-2 walk-off win five different ways because last night's game was loaded with basically everything.

Jeff Wilson reacts to the Rangers dropping the Magic Number to 3, and Martin Perez's showing, while relaying his fear of being demoted from Platinum to Gold.

T.R. Sullivan writes about Jeff Banister getting the boot from last night's game, along with Mitch Moreland earlier in the evening, because MLB still employs human genital wart Joe West and knockoff truckstop t-shirt Muppet Kerwin Danley.

Ryan Posner makes Mike Scioscia seem tolerable for the first time in his entire life (besides the time his tragic illness made us smile) by getting him to talk about how Adrian Beltre is rad.

Stefan Stevenson has notes and among them is one on how the Rangers plan to handle their aces in these final two weeks of the season.

Sullivan writes that Shin-Soo Choo is eyeing an ALDS return if all goes well as he ramps up his rehab from a forearm fracture last month.

Speaking of fractures, Richard Justice writes about the contenders who have dealt with injuries the most this season. Spoilers: The Rangers have been hit pretty hard.

Posner previews tonight's game between the Rangers and Angels with A.J. Griffin looking to shrink the Magic Number against Anaheim's Daniel Wright.

Per Jason Whitely of WFAA, the folks against the new stadium say the announcement that The Ballpark won't be bulldozed is a load of hogwash, hooey, and/or horsefeathers.

Finally, Adam Grosbard writes that Matthew McConaughey took time out of his busy pensively driving in luxury vehicles schedule to bring his Just Keep Livin Foundation message to local youths via the Rangers.

Have a nice day!
