3 rival picks that would be bad news for Cowboys in 2022 NFL Draft

+

The 2022 NFL Draft is right around the corner and teams are building their draft boards, including the Dallas Cowboys. We’ve been so focused on what the Cowboys are doing, who’s on their visit list, and if they’ll trade, that we’ve lost sight of what the rest of the NFC East is doing and who they are looking at.

75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking Major League Baseball’s color barrier in 1947 50th anniversary of Texas Rangers first game in 1972

+

The Texas Rangers will celebrate two very significant anniversaries this Friday, April 15 when the club hosts the Los Angeles Angels at 7:05 p.m. at Globe Life Field. On April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier when he took the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers versus the Boston Braves at Ebbets Field.

For Openers, Do Rangers Have a Closer?

+

Better late than never, it’s Opening Day for your Texas Rangers and I have two guarantees for the 2022 season: 1. They won’t lose 102 games; 2. They won’t score the fewest runs in the American League. Not sure about a pitching staff with Jon Gray as the ace and a combo platter of Matt Bush-Greg Holland-Joe Barlow as the closer. But I am certain that ownership’s half-a-billion-dollar investment in Corey Seager and Marcus Semien will provide more offense and fewer defeats. The Rangers hit only 167 homers in 2021; Semien hit 45.

Thursday 8/19 OT

451

When this OT expires, you'll be two weeks closer to whatever you've been excitedly waiting for--like the Kraken, or Ozark season four, or the next OT! You'll also be two weeks closer to conquering whatever task you've been dreading--like the Kraken, or Ozark season four, or the next OT! Inspiring. Please don't talk about baseball, unless you want to, but strongly consider doing it anywhere else, especially if it's about the Seattle Mariners. Please don't talk about politics or religion either, even if you want to (especially if you want to). Please DO talk about anything else--like the Kraken, or Ozark season four, or the next OT!

Beltre is Love. Beltre is Life.

Thanks, Adrian!
