I guess it’s spring training for the players, too

MLB: Texas Rangers-Media Day Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning. The Rangers followed up their 9-1 Spring Training-opening loss to the Royals with a 10-1 loss yesterday to Milwaukee. Team MVP Carlos Tocci accounted for all of the runs with a solo home run. Only 217 more days to go!

Levi Weaver writes a really dope article about Joey Gallo’s never-ending quest to silence the inner doubt demons and be better at baseball which will definitely not be polarizing on the Internet just because the words Joey and Gallo are used right there in the headline.

T.R. Sullivan writes that Rangers prospect Taylor Hearn has a family background in rodeo, not baseball.

Richard Justice thinks the Rangers are one of the five teams that could end up being better than the current perception so we have that going for us.

Sullivan’s notes from Sunday include one on how Nomar Mazara’s revamped swing and approach made its Spring debut yesterday.

And, lastly, Mac Engel took a break from his provocateur day job to report that the Rangers are considering lowering the prices of their concessions at the new ballpark. Hell, Engel even included an extra note on Joe Palumbo’s spring debut like a real, actual sports writer.

Have a nice day!
