  • The Stat Line of the Night – 10/18/10 – Cliff Lee

    The Stat Line of the Night – 10/18/10 – Cliff Lee

    The nickname “Mr. October” may currently belong to Reggie Jackson, however, should Cliff Lee continues his run of playoff dominance, that may have to change. Rangers’ manager Ron Washington ordered his starting rotation so that Lee would pitch Game 3 and give his team the opportunity to steal a game in New York, and that […]

  • Rangers Break Out The Ginger Ale After ALDS Victory

    Rangers Break Out The Ginger Ale After ALDS Victory

    When the Texas Rangers clinched a playoff birth and the division title in September, MVP candidate Josh Hamilton refused to take part in the post-game locker room celebration.  Hamilton isn’t opposed to celebrations, and this wasn’t the case of a player refusing to celebrate until his team wins it all.  Instead, being a recovering drug […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 10/12/10 — Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee has been one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball over the last few years, if not the most dominant, and he went out and showed it once again in a deciding Game 5 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.  The Rangers acquired Lee for just this type of stage, so they could […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 9/7/10 — Vernon Wells

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/7/10 — Vernon Wells

    Let’s just say its a bad idea to bet against Vernon Wells when he plays the Texas Rangers.  As the Rangers have found out this year, when Wells and the Blue Jays come to town, it usually spells trouble for them.  He was at it again last night, helping the Jays to an 8-5 victory over the […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/27/10 – Cliff Lee

  • Rangers Pitcher Dustin Nippert Takes Line Drive to the Head

    Rangers Pitcher Dustin Nippert Takes Line Drive to the Head

    It’s the absolute scariest thing that can happen on the baseball diamond. A pitcher fires the ball to the catcher and is falling off toward one side of the mound, not in a good defensive position.  The batter hits a screaming line drive right back at him and he has no time to react and […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/15/10 – Tommy Hunter

    Quick — name the first place team in the American League West. Did you guess Texas Rangers? Good for you. Can you name the pitcher on their club that is now 6-0 after beating the Boston Red Sox last night? Did you say Tommy Hunter? Liar. Hunter made it into the 7th inning last night […]

    Big Bully Pancakes Kid Into Fence For A Home Run Ball

    Last night was not a good night to be a baseball fan at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, where it seemed like if you weren’t falling 30 feet from the upper deck while reaching for a foul ball, then you were getting drilled from behind into a fence by some big jerk as you race […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/30/10 – Vladimir Guerrero

    Vladimir Guerrero must have found himself The Hot Tub Time Machine. In 2010 he’s been partying like it’s 1999. Last night the Texas Rangers were in L.A. to take on the Angels, and Vlad went off on his old team. With the Rangers down 3-0 in the fourth inning. Vlad stepped up to the plate […]

    Total Pro Sports – It has been a nightmare season for the Toronto Blue Jays thus far in 2009.  After getting off to a hot start and holding the division lead through the first two months, they have fallen quickly, finding themselves out of playoff contention with a month left, and several question marks remain […]
