Chris Woodward made a controversial decision in sitting Shin-Soo Choo on Opening Day. Kevin Sherrington says he is quite different from his predecessor.

Elvis Andrus used “Baby Shark” as his walkup music, and then went 3 for 4 with a homer, so get used to “Baby Shark.” Gerry Fraley thinks Elvis could be back to hitting with power this year.

Yu Darvish feels like he “grew up in Texas.”

Kyle Bird claimed the final spot on the Rangers’ Opening Day roster when it was set yesterday morning. Connor Sadzeck was designated for assignment.
