MLB: Texas Rangers at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

T.R. Sullivan recaps the 4-3 victory over the Astros which allowed the Rangers to inexplicably sweep Houston.

Jeff Wilson reacts to the winning weekend the Rangers had in Houston which culminated in a sweep on Sunday.

Levi Weaver writes that yesterday in Houston was a blast from the recent past but now it’s time to face the reality of the trade deadline for a team out of contention.

Evan Grant writes that Keone Kela and the Rangers are ready for the trade deadline to pass so the smoke can clear.

Sullivan notes that Kela is in fact the Ranger garnering the most attention on the trade market as we near the deadline.

Wilson writes that Kela is aware of the rumors surrounding him as it is entirely possible he’s thrown his final pitch as a Ranger.

Jamey Newberg looks and the ins and outs of the timing of the Cole Hamels trade to Chicago.

Mark Townsend writes that perhaps soon, if a team presents the Rangers with a compelling offer, Adrian Beltre will have a tough decision to make.

Grant opines that Delino DeShields’ return after a brief demotion is the latest haphazard episode from an incoherent season for the Rangers.

Congrats to former Ranger Vladimir Guerrero for gaining baseball immortality in Cooperstown yesterday.

And, lastly, the Rangers had some well-earned fun on their flight to Arizona yesterday by playing music-themed dress up.

Have a nice day!
