Good morning, folks...

If you are curious about why the Rangers have seemed wedded to Logan Forsythe, even before his recent hot streak, Evan Grant explains that from the time he was hired, Chris Woodward lobbied for Forsythe, saying he’s great at picking up pitchers’ tells, as well as being able to help get buy-in from his teammates on some of the analytical and technological things the team is adopting.

Joey Gallo says the stats he focuses on are OBP and OPS, but Adrian Beltre thinks he can be a .300 hitter with time.

Evan Grant has a new Evan Help Us column up that, among other things, makes a guess at what a Gallo extension would look like.

Levi Weaver writes that Lance Lynn has seen increased success in his recent starts while changing his pitch selection.

Stefan Stevenson writes that the Rangers have exceeded expectations so far this season by scoring a lot of runs.
