Fangraphs’ Tony Wolfe writes that the weirdo Rangers signed one of the strangest free agents in recent memory in an eccentric match perhaps made in peculiar heaven.

At The Athletic, Keith Law covers the recent barrage of moves made by Texas — baseball’s busiest team, as expect.

David Schoenfield takes on the task of naming the biggest star that each team has traded. Did you know the Rangers once had Alex Rodriguez?

Be well!
