Good morning. Remember when Nolan Ryan tersely left his cushy position with the Astros over blatant nepotism? Fun times.
Sam Miller ranks all 30 teams based on their 2019 goals with the Rangers falling under the only a bit disappointed category for losing 80+ games again but enjoying big seasons from Mike Minor and Lance Lynn and contention for far longer than anyone expected.
Fangraphs’ Ben Gawlowski attempts to find homes for the top free agents with the Rangers being the best fit for Anthony Rendon, a sentiment that is hard to argue on paper at least.
Will Leitch sets out to name the most likely next MVP for each team and correctly lists Joey Gallo for the Rangers while lauding him for his first half efforts in 2019.
And, finally, Jamey Newberg lists prospects No. 12 to 6 in his series to name the top 72 Rangers farmhands.
Have a nice day!
