Good morning.

Nomar Mazara penned his story for MLB in his own words using a second language because he’s chill like that.

Joseph Ursery recaps the weekend series win against Detroit and also has a few sprinkles of first-hand Connor Sadzeck thoughts.

Yu Darvish’s worst start of the year was enough for Evan Grant to say: Sign him (and bring Otani, too).

Jeff Wilson writes that Matt Bush is pitching more frequently now because the Rangers are winning more games. Or, maybe the Rangers are winning more games because Matt Bush is pitching more frequently?

ESPN Deportes’ Enrique Rojas writes that Adrian Beltre is showing progresa en su recuperación.

Rangers fans descended upon T.R. Sullivan’s mailbox and he was gracious enough to answer their questions.

Last year it was the one-run wins and subpar run differential, this year, those pesky sabermetric stats still have a bone to pick with the Rangers despite the fact that Texas is 4-7 in one run games and have underperformed their Pythagorean W-L by a game. The Rangers just can’t seem to win (except for, you know, all the winning they do).

Sullivan previews Andrew Cashner’s Fenway Park debut in tonight’s opener against Rick Porcello and the Red Sox.

And, lastly, just as you would have predicted, the The Ballpark was named the most vegan-friendly ballpark by PETA.

Have a nice day!
