Good morning.

Jeff Wilson has reactions to the Rangers embarrassing themselves in St. Petersburg against the Rays.

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangers’ 8-4 loss to essentially the worst team in baseball (or maybe the second worst team in Florida?).

T.R. Sullivan writes that another Martin Perez stinker was the main culprit for last night’s shameful display.

Wilson writes that Bartolo Colon handed everyone the blueprint on how to do it on Sunday night but that Perez came out on Monday and jammed a bunch of popsicle sticks together and then drank all the glue.

Perhaps fittingly, while Perez was metaphorically falling on his face, Jurickson Profar was literally doing so and is now in MLB’s concussion protocol because the one single pitching prospect and one single position player prospect we all pinned our hopes on for half a decade can now be linked together as our punishment for daring to have sports desires, dreams, and expectations.


Weaver writes about Renato Nunez.

And, lastly, Brad Townsend announces that it’s officially the worst time to be a sports fan in the DFW.

Have a nice day!
