MLB: Houston Astros at Texas Rangers Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Evan Grant writes that the Rangers could add to the 2019 team before the trade deadline but they should make sure they stick to their long-term plan.

Jeff Wilson writes that the 2009 Rangers were in a similar boat as the team ten years later which could provide a clue as to what this year’s squad might do at the deadline.

T.R. Sullivan checks in with the latest Rangers notes including the likely return of Hunter Pence beginning tonight.

Fangraphs’ Eric Longenhagen chimes in with his thoughts on the prospect for prospect trade the Rangers and Rays made last week.

Sullivan answers Rangers questions in his latest mailbox and apparently really doesn’t think the team should sell.

The Levi Weaver Wire takes a look back at all the news from the last week including what a split against the Astros means and how Texas might handle the trade deadline.

Grant’s Rangers’ Stock Report is high on a troika of starters and down on Asdrubal Cabrera’s summer slide.

And, finally, the folks at MLB dot com led by Richard Justice conducted a Cy Young poll and it seems like Lance Lynn and Mike Minor are splitting the Texas vote.

Have a nice day!
