MLB: Oakland Athletics at Texas Rangers Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

T.R. Sullivan has a roundup of FAQ’s, like “what’s the deal with Rougned Odor” and “what’s the deal with the terrible production from the number three hitters?”

Kolby Allard had a really good outing, defying the odds, and the Ranger offense did whatever the opposite of defying the odds might be by wasting it.

Chris Woodward says he might have been quicker to pull Kolby Allard if he hadn’t been taking a no hitter into the sixth.

While much of the sports world took a deep breath to focus on racial injustice, the Rangers decided that the best way to campaign for the end of systemic racism in policing is by not scoring any runs and committing a bunch of errors.

There was some discussion about whether the last night’s would be played, but after talking it over with Taylor Hearn, Willie Calhoun, Tony Beasley, and Callix Crabbe the Rangers decided to go ahead and play if the A’s decided not to boycott.

Speaking of which, Kevin Sherrington asks what difference does it make that a bunch of star athletes are willing to stop playing to point at the flames?

Shin Soo Choo could finally be traded in what could be his final season in the league.

The Ranger offense might not make it to the World Series but their shiny new park might.
