MLB: Texas Rangers at Minnesota Twins Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Jeff Wilson recaps the Rangers’ 2-0 loss to the Minnesota Twins as they ran face first into a dominating Jose Berrios.

T.R. Sullivan writes that Bartolo Colon was a hard luck loser as the Rangers lost for the first time in a week.

After reaching base for a 37th consecutive game, Evan Grant writes that Shin-Soo Choo deserves to be an All-Star, traded to a contender, and/or both.

Kevin Sherrington writes that the Twins throwing at Jurickson Profar for stealing a base in the fourth inning of a game Minnesota ultimately had the winning run at the plate in the ninth inning is further proof that the “unwritten rules” of baseball are stupid.

Wilson reacts to the latest from the Rangers from over the weekend and ponders who could be considered untouchable in the coming weeks.

Sullivan has a trade deadline primer where the Rangers have an eye toward the future and many veterans available to deal.

Wilson writes that the Rangers could trade Adrian Beltre, sure, but they also value him because he’s, you know, one of the 25 best baseball players to ever live.

Despite the willingness to keep Beltre, Nick Cafardo writes that you can add the Braves and Red Sox, along with the Phillies and Indians, as teams interested in acquiring the future Hall of Famer.

Grant notes that Joey Gallo is having statistically a nearly identical season as the one he had last season.

And, lastly, Jamey Newberg writes the story of the ball from Jose Trevino’s first baseball big league hit.

Have a nice day!
