Jeff Wilson’s newsletter is basically just a daily recounting of how the bullpen ruined our day.

Matt Fisher writes that the Rangers let the Astros back into the AL West race instead of burying them.

Shawn McFarland writes that there’s no time to dwell on yesterday’s loss.

Marcus Semien is the first half MVP for the Rangers according to ESPN’s Bradford Doolittle.

Jay Jaffe takes on analysis of the Aroldis Chapman trade over at FanGraphs.

Kiley McDaniel profiles what each team might be looking to accomplish at the MLB draft.

Have a nice freedom day!
