Tuesday Morning Texas Rangers Update

Only a week until we’ve got new baseball photos to choose from!

Good morning.

T.R. Sullivan writes that the Rangers enter Spring Training as the underdogs which is just the way the Rangers like it.

In the second part of his issues to resolve series, Evan Grant writes that the Rangers need more Ks and also less Ks.

Jeff Wilson continues his look at each position with a stop at DH where Shin-Soo Choo is expected to get most of his at-bats.

The Rangers signed Darwin Barney to a minor league deal and Grant makes the evolution joke but refrains from the Purple Dinosaur references.

The Rangers land three on Fangraph’s top 100 prospects list but don’t worry, there are still things to get mad about like the fact that they didn’t rank Hans Crouse No. 1 — or, at all — and Leody Taveras is all the way down at No. 86.

And, lastly, Richard Justice gives us ten dark horse Cy Young candidates and includes Matt Moore. Seeing as the Rangers have never had a pitcher win the Cy Young, and Matt Moore was among the worst full time starters in baseball last season, that horse might be dark enough to capture every photon of light in the known universe.

Have a nice day!
