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

MLB: Houston Astros at Texas Rangers Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Evan Grant has the latest from Jon Daniels on the Rangers and the fate of Sam Dyson, Mike Napoli’s back, and Cole Hamels’ return.

Matt Fisher writes that with the AL West all but out of reach, the Rangers can still set their sights on a Wild Card berth.

Jeff Wilson writes that the next 40 games or so will determine if those Wild Card hopes are attainable or if the Rangers should sell.

Grant writes that Jeff Banister at least still believes that the Rangers can turn things around.

In case you forgot why everyone is all but conceding the division, Joseph Ursery recaps the weekend sweep at the hands of the red hot Astros.

T.R. Sullivan profiles the new and improved and recently married Elvis Andrus who is sporting an .825 OPS and will be a father later this summer.

Fangraphs’ Eric Longenhagen has the Rangers selecting prep SS Mark Vientos in his Mock Draft of the first round of the MLB Draft.

Anthony DiComo and Sullivan tag team a preview of tonight’s interleague opener between the Rangers and Mets with Dillon Gee facing his former team in his first start for his hometown team.

Adam Grosbard explains how those zany Oakland bleacher creatures trolled Jose Bautista yesterday. (Hint: It involved a red No. 12 jersey.)

And, lastly, get a load of these dipshits.

Have a nice day!
