Good morning.

Kennedi Landry writes about the Texas Rangers downing the Seattle Mariners 10-2 on Sunday with rookies Dane Dunning and Adolis Garcia leading the way.

Sam Blum writes that the home team has returned to .500 ball but, more importantly, they’re keeping things interesting in nearly mid-May which exceeds expectations.

Stefan Stevenson writes that Khris Davis called his own shot upon joining the Rangers where he proclaimed that he will lead the club to the October promised land.

Levi Weaver explores the whys and hows of tonight’s starter Kyle Gibson turning things up a notch for the Rangers so far this season.

Landry notes that starter Kohei Arihara landed on the IL which meant that Eli White had to hang a metaphorical uey on I-35 to return to the club.

Blum looks at the candidates to grab Arihara’s spot in the rotation with Hyeon-Jong Yang, Kolby Allard, and Wes Benjamin likely gunning for the gig.

Keith Law provides his latest MLB Draft intel after a weird weekend seeking a firsthand account of Jack Leiter and Kumar Rocker.

And, Will Leitch names a player from each team that hasn’t gotten it going yet with David Dahl the obvious choice for the Rangers.

Have a nice day!
