MLB: San Diego Padres at Texas Rangers Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Chris Woodward showed more reflection than you may have expected in regard to his suspension, saying that just because he didn’t think swinging on 3-0 in a blowout was the right thing to do doesn’t mean it was the wrong thing to do.

However, the written MLB rules trump the unwritten old school rules, that’s just how it goes.

Mac Engel says the Rangers shouldn’t get their fee-fees hurt because Fernando Tatis, Jr. did his job.

Evan Grant looks at the reaction from around the baseball world to Monday’s brouhaha.

Levi Weaver took a look at the Rangers offense and says that while they’ve been bad they shouldn’t have been this bad, and suggests maybe an increase in the number of defensive shifts and a deader ball in 2020 may be playing a role.

The DMN’s Edward Egros also looked at the Rangers’ wOBA and xwOBA and wonders why the team isn’t living up to expectations.

The Rangers want you to be able to enjoy fine ballpark cuisine in the comfort of your own home.

Mike Minor has no idea what he’s doing wrong.

Elvis Andrus and Rougned Odor are also not setting the world on fire and both sat for the first time in 161 games.

Still, sitting the middle of the infield didn’t stop the Padres from picking up another victory and another grand slam.

Mike Minor says that he has to get better, although strictly speaking that isn’t exactly true.
