The Mother’s Day Texas Rangers lineup against the M’s

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Texas Rangers Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Texas Rangers lineup for May 9, 2021 against the Seattle Mariners: starting pitchers are Dane Dunning for the Rangers and Justus Sheffield for the M’s.

Can the Rangers win this series against the hated Mariners, and snap the “get to .500” curse? Can the Rangers, for the second day in a row, knock out of the game early a pitcher acquired by the M’s from the Yankees in the James Paxton trade? Can the Rangers make their mothers happy, or will they disappoint them, like that time in 3rd grade when I came home with an A on an assignment and was told I should have better work and gotten an A+, and so I ate an entire bag of nacho cheese Doritos and ate three peanut butter sandwiches while repressing my feelings, and which I’ve completely gotten over and which doesn’t impact me to this day?

The lineup:

IKF — SS

Nicky S. — 2B

Big Nate — 1B

Adolis the Adonis — CF

Crazy Joe Gallo — RF

Khris the Ranger Khrusher — DH

Willie Rakes — LF

The Culb — 3B

Corpus Christi’s own Gold Glover, Jose Trevino — C
