Good morning. So, hey, there will be real baseball played this week.
T.R. Sullivan writes that the Rangers made a majority of their roster decisions yesterday with a few choices still left to be decided before Opening Day on Friday.
Jeff Wilson writes about the whittling of the roster and how surprises such as Leody Taveras and Wes Benjamin are still battling for spots.
As part of the season preview for the Dallas Morning News, Kevin Sherrington writes that baseball’s back and it’s pretty weird.
Evan Grant has a prediction for which 30 Rangers players will make the 2020 Opening Day roster.
Sam Blum writes that the Rangers are hoping noticeable swing adjustments will help Rougned Odor avoid his annual season-ruining slump.
A roundtable of writers at the DMN make some predictions on what we could see from the Rangers in 2020.
Blum writes about how Chuck Morgan will handle the in-stadium experience at The Shed when the park will be empty aside from, you know, the Major League Baseball game.
Grant breezes through a prediction of the win/loss record for each month of the 2020 season for the Rangers.
Sullivan has notes on Mike Minor’s future in Texas, Todd Frazier’s position, and a controversial victory for the Dallas Black Giants.
And, lastly, a bunch of folks offered their full season predictions at the DMN. No one thinks the Rangers are going to win the World Series but no one thinks the Rangers will finish below .500.
