Good morning. The Super Bowl really showed its whole butt in front of Tony Romo, huh? Nothing says “hey Siri when do pitchers and catchers report?” like Maroon 5 and lowest-scoring Big Game in league history.

Will Leitch looks at the current WAR leader for each team and, now that Adrian Beltre is retired, Beltre’s vacation buddy Elvis Andrus takes up the mantle in Texas.

Jamey Newberg looks back to the last time the Rangers were in a similar developmental phase to see how the 2019 team stacks up with where things were at in 2007.

MLB Trade Rumors notes that old Rangers side-slangin’ farmhand Ben Rowen has found work on a minor league deal with the Braves.

And, lastly, the A’s are getting a reprieve as the Oakland Raiders are going to ruin a different baseball stadium in the Bay Area on their way out of California.

Have a nice day!
