MLB: Texas Rangers-Globe Life Field Tours Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Tim Cowlishaw writes about The Shed sitting around with no baseball being played in it as Major League Baseball tries to get a season going.

Jeff Wilson writes that fans are worried about the future of baseball if MLB and the MLBPA can’t come together to put on a season in 2020.

T.R. Sullivan notes that you can now take a tour of The Shed and see some shadow boxes of Rangers greats which sounds like a good time if, you know, the whole world wasn’t a disaster right now.

Evan Grant writes about the 37 minor leaguers that the Rangers released on Monday which included three pitchers that appeared in the majors for Texas.

Levi Weaver lands Nolan Arenado, Yordan Alvarez, and a couple of good Texas Rangers in a draft of the best 40 players from the West divisions in both leagues.

Sullivan continues to rank the top five of each position in team history and somehow doesn’t name Kenny Rogers as the team’s best left-handed starter (nor second best, nor even third).

Mike Piellucci’s simulation of a Rangers season over at The Athletic has Texas in Wild Card spot at 32-27 through nearly 60 games despite the fact that simulated Mike Minor and Lance Lynn are a combined 4-11 so that just goes to show how bizarre an extremely short season could be.

And, finally, despite the fact that it seems like the Rangers opt for Texas-born players a lot, Jonathan Mayo names John Danks as Texas’ best “hometown” draft pick.

Be well.
