We would be watching the Texas Rangers open the 2020 season in Seattle right about now but then, well, you know...
So instead, Fox Sports Southwest is re-airing some games from last season at the times the real games would have been played beginning with the rubber match of last year’s season-opening series against the Cubs.
After getting blown out on Opening Day, the Rangers bounced back to beat old friend Yu Darvish in the second game to set up a matchup between also old friend Cole Hamels and newly-signed Lance Lynn in the finale.
It’s not live, fresh, new baseball to usher in the brand new season, but it’s something. And heck, it’ll be nice to see The Ballpark again.
