MLB: NLCS-Atlanta Braves at Los Angeles Dodgers Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Levi Weaver and Jamey Newberg have put together an amazing oral history of the acquisition of Cliff Lee and the run to the World Series for the 2010 Texas Rangers.

Jeff Wilson writes that ten years after that ‘10 World Series, Ron Washington is back in Arlington for another League Championship series.

Sam Blum writes about fans getting to watch the first baseball game from the stands in 2020 at The Shed during Game 1 of the NLCS last night.

Stefan Stevenson gathers initial Shed reactions from fans who nearly universally dunked on the exterior of the new park but seemed to enjoy the interior.

Wilson notes that Ronald Acuna Jr. is in town with the Atlanta Braves which is as good an excuse to talk about his brother, Rangers prospect Luisangel Acuna, as any.

And, Jim Callis writes that MLB officially ratified the MLB draft order with no Manfred shenanigans so the Rangers will indeed have the No. 2 overall pick. It will be the highest in the draft that the Rangers have selected since taking Tommy Boggs 2nd overall in 1974.

Be well!
