MLB: Houston Astros at Texas Rangers Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning. Umpires, amirite?

Wesley Dotson writes that the Rangers lost 8-7 in yesterday’s baseball game. You don’t need nor want the details but suffice it to say, it involved a balk and superhuman umpiric incompetence.

Levi Weaver scored quotes from the villains of yesterday’s loss where the umpires basically try to gaslight everyone with their J.R. Smith-level of recall of the moment. You know, standard umpire nonsense.

Stefan Stevenson writes wow what a wacky game lol how fun but I’d honestly be down to see the Rangers play just one normal game of baseball this season.

T.R. Sullivan notes that the Rangers are expected to announce the signing of top draft pick Cole Winn and others in the next few days.

Doug Fister was DL’d with being old and having a knee yesterday so Stevenson wonders if it’s time to bring up Yovani Gallardo.

Jamey Newberg writes that Jon Daniels gets the rare and unique opportunity of rebuilding the same franchise he already built once.

And, lastly, John Paschal writes about the charm, frustration, and suspense that comes when following the Schrodinger’s baseball provided by MLB Gameday.

Have a nice day!
