MLB: Oakland Athletics at Texas Rangers Raymond Carlin III-USA TODAY Sports

Shin Soo Choo is still dealing with a sore oblique and Rougned Odor an eye infection so neither is currently capable of contributing their crappy stats to the crappy whole that is the Rangers offense.

It’s not just the offense that sucks, though, as Kyle Gibson gave up seven runs last night and the rotation not counting Lance Lynn is sporting a 7.23 ERA.

Remember the good ol’ days last week when the Rangers were a game away from .500? Well, now let’s talk Lance Lynn trades.

Sam Blum goes over a whole long list of pitchers who might be tapped to start instead of Kolby Allard in tonight’s game.

Chris Woodward might be a glass-half-full kind of guy, taking the opportunity of the Rangers being so bad to celebrate all the young players we’re going to get to watch for the rest of the season.

Last night the Rangers said “back to your regularly scheduled programming,” returning the their losing ways after a one game break from losing.

Jon Daniels said in a conference call Monday that Rougned Odor is still getting playing time because there’s no one who is currently a better option than waiting to see if he stops sucking.

Kyle Gibson said that hitting Mark Chapman in the head rattled him in last night’s game, though you’d think it probably rattled Mark Chapman even more.
