MLB: Texas Rangers at Seattle Mariners Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

Paul McCartney, who (I poop you not) would have played Frodo Baggins in the Beatles’ planned adaptation of The Lord of the Rings, will be playing at Globe Life Field in June.

Robinson Chirinos has agreed to a one year deal with the hated Houston Astros.

The Rangers have finalized Chris Woodward’s supporting cast.

They have also signed Rafael Montero to a minor league deal to see if he can make his way back from Tommy John and lost Chi Chi Gonzalez to Colorado on a minor league deal.

The Rangers will be “doing their homework” on Japanese pitcher Yusei Kikuchi.

Jeff Wilson says Kikuchi isn’t nearly the player that Ohtani and Darvish were but that the Rangers need pitchers.

Jayson Stark wonders what would happen if MLB killed the shift.
