Robinson Chirinos and Chris Martin will be participating in a series of exhibitions in Japan pitting players from MLB against all-stars from Nippon Professional Baseball.

Gerry Fraley asks if the Rangers may be zeroing in on a managerial candidate and then decidedly doesn’t answer that question.

Alex Cora says that the Red Sox won the whole thing because they put the ball in play, unlike certain unknown players whose names rhyme with Snowy Cowhole and... well, I can’t think of something that rhymes with Rougned Odor.

The Rangers will be interviewing Twins’ bench coach Derek Shelton for the managerial position.

Evan Grant just penned a column comparing Jon Daniels to that blonde wearing the fun hat that says “come find me!’ in the match.com commercials.

T.R. Sullivan notes that the Rangers appear to have not been completely satisfied with their original list of managerial candidates.

That uncertainty has sources saying that Dodgers third base coach Chris Woodward and Red Sox bench coach Ron Roenicki are going to be interviewed, as well.

Levi Weaver has an outside-the-box suggestion as to who the Rangers should hire to replace Jeff Banister.
