Good morning, LSB.
Really not that much out there specifically on the Rangers today, maybe the beat reporters are sick of writing about crappy offense.
Evan Grant says that the effects of Wednesday’s no-hitter may have lingered as the Rangers were shut out again yesterday in a 2-0 loss to the Yankees.
Jeff Wilson also suggests some no-hitter hangover, with quotes from Chris Woodward intimating that the team wasn’t playing as aggressively as he’d like.
Wilson also writes about the team’s rough span losing nine of their last 10 games. And into town come the 26-18 Houston Astros, btw.
Kennedi Landry writes about Dane Dunning’s afternoon, the rookie going six shutout innings in the loss.
On The Athletic Jon Bowden has some potential trade proposals with a few Rangers names cropping up.
The Athletic also has a piece up on the rampant use of “foreign substances” by pitchers.
If Corey Kluber’s no-no wasn’t enough to stick it right in your little Rangers eyeball, read about how the guy the Rangers gave up for him is doing now. One GD inning, I swear...
Will Leitch lists eight players who would fit in great in the 1980s, featuring Ranger Name.
And the Class A games are all popping off with stolen bases due to the new experimental minor league rules.
That’s all for this morning. The Rangers fire up their series with the first-place Astros tonight at 7:05. Good mornin to ya.
