Good morning. 2019 should prove to be an annoyingly, but ultimately necessary, transitional season for the Rangers in most ways but no other group of fans gets to see Joey Gallo swat 50 of the most aesthetically pleasing dongers every season so we’re not sweating it. Here’s to a year of bountiful progress as the franchise paves the way to the real goal: Getting things ready for Hans Crouse.
Jamey Newberg has a very calendar-flip friendly article about determining the various timelines of arrival for the prospects on the farm.
And, lastly for today, Jayson Stark offers up his highly anticipated annual Strange But True look back at the 2018 season which as far as the Rangers goes provides one final goodbye to the likes of Adrian Beltre, Bartolo Colon, and Jurickson Profar.
Have a nice 2019!
