Good morning. I hope JD and AJ had a friendly wager on last night’s game and now the Rangers get to sign one of Preller’s hidden cache of Latin 16 year olds.
T.R. Sullivan’s summer intern Wesley Dotson recaps the Rangers 7-4 come from behind victory over the Padres last night.
Stefan Stevenson reacts to the win and notes that the bullpen once again came through with four scoreless innings as they remain the most reliable unit on the squad.
Saad Yousuf’s game story focuses on the comeback but also the necessity to come back after Cole Hamels missed a chance to pad his trade value.
Matt Fisher writes that the Rangers have had a good week in the win column even as the front office is perhaps eyeing the trade deadline.
Levi Weaver writes about the impact of Joey Votto on Shin-Soo Choo — and Choo’s impact on Votto — as Choo is having among his best seasons.
Dotson quotes skipper Jeff Banister as believing that Choo should make the All-Star team this season.
Mike Leslie notes that it wasn’t just the Rangers out there raking last night as a trio of Dallas Stars, uh, stars were blasting BP dingers before the game.
And, lastly, The Athletic’s excellent hockey scribe Sean Shapiro writes that it wasn’t much of a surprise to see Jamie Benn, Stephen Johns, or Ben Bishop take so easily to swatting dongs as they each come from baseball backgrounds.
Have a nice day!
