Well, we can celebrate Joey Gallo’s 40th home run even if we can’t really celebrate yet another loss.

The S-T’s game story says that Gallo’s high K total doesn’t change the positivity from his 40 home run season.

Elvis Andrus says that it has been a crappy season but a learning season.

Mike Minor has been shelved for 2018 because he’s the only starting pitcher we have and we don’t want to break him. Minor could be the Rangers’ Opening Day starter in 2019.

Evan Grant fields some mailbag questions about the manager situation and pulls back the curtain on why the firing happened now.

Levi Weaver tries to figure out why seven certain hitters get hit so much more than other batters.

Jon Daniels talks about the run up to the firing of Jeff Banister and what the Rangers are looking for in his replacement.

Joey Gallo’s 40 homer season in which he hit only 37 singles and struck out 200 times puts him in rare company... both in wracking up two 40 homer seasons before age 25 and in striking out so much.
