Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

Who had a worse weekend? The Texas Rangers or Game of Thrones writers?

MLB: Texas Rangers at Houston Astros Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Stefan Stevenson writes that the Rangers will be happy to get out of Houston after a terrible weekend.

T.R. Sullivan recaps the sweep suffered at the hands of the Astros where the Rangers’ starting pitching was especially overmatched.

Evan Grant writes that all a rebuilding team like Texas can take from a weekend like that is as an opportunity to learn from it.

Anthony Castrovince offers up the acquisitions that have made the biggest impact thus far and, as you might expect, there are Rangers ties galore.

Martin Perez made Castrovince’s list with his superlative start in Minnesota, after getting dumped by the Rangers, and he was on Kevin Sherrington’s mind as “the best story in baseball” or rather “the most Rangers story ever” as it were.

Grant ponders the semi-annual question: What if Rougned Odor just slumps forever and nothing good ever happens again?

And, lastly, Will Leitch names a team MVP for each squad at the near-quarter mark of the season with Joey Gallo getting the nod for the Rangers.

Have a nice day!
