Good morning.

Jeff Wilson wonders if MLB and the players will emerge from their bubble to find that no one really cares if there’s a baseball season in 2020 anyway.

Evan Grant shares the all too familiar tale of Tampa Bay pitcher Colin Poche who received a warning from police while his black friend was shot dead.

T.R. Sullivan lists the top five relievers in Rangers history with the only man to ever strike out Alex Rodriguez to send the Rangers to the World Series topping the list.

Levi Weaver ranks the ten best seasons by a designated hitter in Rangers franchise history and there’s way more Brian Downing than you might expect.

Speaking of DHs, Shin-Shoo Choo is still one of the best as Jim Bowden has him tenth on his “Bowden Big Board.”

Sullivan notes that it’s Nelson Cruz and Adrian Beltre week for Rangers television rebroadcasts.

We all know that Nolan Ryan was a 12th round draft pick, right? Well, as Jake Kaplan and Tim Britton write for The Athletic, it turns out that he wasn’t and the 1965 draft was just bat guano.

And, finally, the DMN congratulates the person who hit the first home run in Globe Life Field history, a high school graduate.

Be well!
