Good morning.

Though defense has been something of a strong suit for the Texas Rangers this season, Evan Grant writes that it failed them in series opener against Detroit on Monday.

Kennedi Landry writes that Kolby Allard had a career-high nine Ks last evening as he continues his conversion back to the rotation.

Grant writes about the Rangers’ endless search for middle of the order production with rookie catcher Jonah Heim getting a second look at the No. 5 spot in the lineup.

With the MLB trade deadline now a little over three weeks away, Thomas Harrigan looks at the pros and cons of the top starters — such as All-Star Kyle Gibson — on the market.

Joey Gallo is also an All-Star and, as Stefan Stevenson notes, he knows that’s gotta sting for the olds who still give a shit about batting average.

Gibson, Gallo, and Adolis Garcia are Rangers All-Stars and Levi Weaver ponders what that means for Texas going forward.

And, Landry has notes on Dennis (Rodman) Anfernee Santana’s Texas debut, Brock Holt’s mustache, and Dallas Stars night at The Shed.

Have a nice day!
