The latest news and notes on the back-to-back American League West Champion Texas Rangers

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Dallas Mavericks Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning. In our post-truth world, by an alternative facts reality, I’m happy to announce that the Rangers won the 2011 World Series.

As Adam Grosbard writes, the Dallas Mavericks did a nice and held a ceremony for Pudge Rodriguez. Pudge’s Hall of Fame presence then helped the Mavericks send the LA Lakers to their worst loss in franchise history.

Stefan Stevenson writes about the six Rangers already committed to participating in the World Baseball Classic this spring.

Anthony Castrovince lists the ten most surprising moves of the offseason which is littered with Texas Rangers both new and former.

In an ESPN Insider post, Jim Bowden writes that the Rangers are a team with a hole to fill before Spring Training and the man to fill it is Mike Napoli (or Chris Carter).

Jonathan Mayo continues to list the top ten prospects by position with Andy Ibanez coming in as the 6th best second base prospect just behind former Rangers prospect Travis Demeritte.

Finally, baseball hasn’t expanded in nearly 20 years. Fangraph’s Travis Sawchik looks at what a post-expansion world would look like if MLB added a couple of teams.

Have a nice day!
