Good morning.

T.R. Sullivan recaps yesterday’s 8-5 finale loss to the Angels which saw Kyle Gibson follow up his CGSO last week in Houston with a dud.

Stefan Stevenson notes that the Rangers gave up their eighth grand slam in 2020 in just 54 games played which is one off the franchise record from when, you know, they played 162 games.

Sullivan has notes on Chris Woodward not being interested in losing for a better draft pick, some injury updates, and how Greg Bird has impacted Josh Jung.

With Texas currently a game “up” on teams for the second worst record in baseball, Evan Grant writes that even though Woodward hopes to “screw that all up” in the final week, he can still see development without Tim Bogar-ing things.

Levi Weaver writes that the Rangers didn’t win in 2020 (and in fact they were officially eliminated from consideration for the basically everyone gets in playoff tournament yesterday), so they’ve gone young in the final month of the season and are finally actually interesting to watch.

And, lastly, according to Ken Rosenthal, some industry folk think Jon Daniels might be on the hot seat this offseason.

Be well!
