Good morning. The Rangers are back in Texas but they can’t quite fully shake off the stink of National League baseball just yet as the Dodgers are in town for a series. I remember a noteworthy thing that happened the last time these two teams played...
Jeff Wilson spent yesterday’s day off for the Rangers trying to determine who might see a cup of coffee call up when rosters expand in a few days.
One of those likely coffee drinkers is Yohander Mendez who Evan Grant writes has gotten his life back on track after an embarrassing demotion two months ago.
T.R. Sullivan tries to answer the age old question of why the Rangers can’t develop a pitcher in his latest mailbag column.
Grant shares with us an article from the DMN SportsDay Style magazine about Joey Gallo and his roots in Las Vegas.
Cubs writer for The Athletic Sahadev Sharma ponders the mystery of why Cole Hamels has been so good with Chicago when he sucked so horribly there the last few weeks with Texas.
And, Will Leitch picks one player from each team that he thinks is the most overlooked and names Rougned Odor for the Rangers when he should have picked Jose Leclerc. Rougie’s got plenty of eyes on him, whereas nobody outside of Arlington seems to have noticed that Leclerc is one of the game’s most filthy, unhittable pitchers.
Have a nice day!
