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

NOLAN RYAN RANGERS

Good morning.

Stefan Stevenson relays the sadness expressed by the Rangers over the tragic deaths of Yordano Ventura and Andy Marte.

Jon Heyman looks at the top remaining free agents with Spring Training right around the corner and links Texas to Mike Napoli and Chris Carter.

T.R. Sullivan names the inking of Nolan Ryan as the best free agent signing in team history as it is the event that put the franchise on the map. (I’d argue that the Adrian Beltre signing wins, however, as Beltre went from Scott Rolen to inner-circle Hall of Fame-level after signing with Texas while Ryan had his best years with two franchises we don’t even like.)

Samuel Hale worries that the Rangers played it too safe when reorganizing the TV broadcast booth this winter.

At Fangraphs, Eno Sarris spoke with the newest Hall of Famers — including our man Pudge — about the adjustments they made to make their game Cooperstown-worthy.

Cliff Corcoran lists five baseball things that he can’t wait to see this year, even though I have a difficult time believing anyone is truly excited about the World Baseball Classic.

And, lastly, check out this article from Sullivan to learn more about a concert Eric Nadel is holding to benefit homeless teenagers in the area.

Have a nice day!
