Saturday morning Rangers news and links

Good morning, fellow fans of the 2016 A.L. West champs...

Jeff Wilson’s game story talks about Cole Hamels and Adrian Beltre leading the way in the clinching win.

T.R. Sullivan’s game story also is about the big dogs leading the Rangers to a division-clinching victory.

Evan Grant has his “Three Takeaways,” and says yesterday was the perfect way to clinch.

Levi Weaver writes about the 2016 Rangers, and their journey to the title.

Kevin Sherrington says this team is the best prepared of any Ranger team for October baseball.

Richard Justice says the Rangers took an “unorthodox path” to the division title.

Jean-Jacques Taylor writes that it is World Series or Bust for the Rangers, and that it took three months for Jeff Banister to determine if the team had the intangibles to win in October.

The Rangers’ goal now is to clinch home field advantage throughout the playoffs, after celebrating with champagne (and ginger ale) last night.

Tanner Scheppers’ stock is rising, and Derek Holland’s stock is falling...

Mac Engel thinks Jeff Banister should be named Manager of the Year for a second straight season. Oddly, he has a line in there about Mike Maddux not being brought back because of money, which isn’t consistent with my understanding, but wouldn’t be a Galloway Jr. column without some shade thrown at the front office...

Shin-Soo Choo had a quality batting practice session yesterday, and wants to return for the final series of the season next weekend.

Sullivan has a story on Jeremy Jeffress returning to the Rangers after being in rehab the last month.

Jeffress apologized to his teammates before yesterday’s game.

Evan writes about Jeffress and Andrew Faulkner being back on the active roster.

The flight to Oakland featured the traditional rookie dress-up.

Levi Weaver has his Baseball Texas Daily notes.

The S-T’s notes talk about Shin-Soo Choo, Tony Barnette, Andrew Faulkner, and James Jones.

The Rangers’ website notes hit on Choo, Barnette, Faulkner and Jones, as well.
