Could be the win that changed the entire season, we were down 8-4 heading into the bottom of the 7th & went on to win 9-8 our record stands at 50-42
Chavez was terrible pitching 5.1 giving up 7 hits 7 runs 6 of them earned walked 2 struck out 3 & gave up 3 HR’s
Choo-Choo,Santana,Gallo,Federowicz & Guzman all hit HR’s
Guzman’s was the biggest his 2 run shot tied the game at 8
Santana singled home the winning run in the bottom of the 9th
We went 2-8 with RISP left 7 on base & we struck out 17 times

On a three game win streak, beating the ‘Stros twice in a row is quite a way to start off the second half...,

Saturday was brutal, Woodard has to be better with his pitcher choices i think. Leaving Martin in for Springer and beyond was really silly

Is Danny Santana going to play everyday now? He should have Odor's job already, but it didn't seem to me like that was gonna happen

Santana is penciled in to start every day but Rangers front office was hoping that Odor would show something so hopefully a team would take him
Pence will be back tomorrow vs Diamondbacks & even Kiner-Falefa should be back meaning Mathis is going back down

Chavez went only 0.2 yes 0.2 gave up 5 hits 7 runs all of them earned walked 1 and gave up 1 HR
Sampson didn’t do any better 1.1 innings gave up 5 hits 5 runs all earned walked 1 & gave up 2 HR’s
Valdez & Bird stunk it up as well
Santana went 2/4 both of his hits were HR’s he’s now got 13 for the year, he drove in 3
Forsythe drove in our other run
Went 0-3 with RISP & left 4 on base struck out 14 times

A much needed day off today, it’s not a coincidence on the day our front office says many on the trade block the team just quit
We head to Houston for three games starting tomorrow night
Minor vs Verlander in what will be Minor’s last start as a Ranger
Jurado on Saturday & Lynn on Sunday
On paper we could win 2 out of 3 let’s see if we wake up or continue our downward spiral

We are in Houston tonight for a three game series, Minor vs Verlander tonight
Let’s see if the team has “packed their bags” or going to regroup & win a few games
My thoughts are we will come out swinging & get to Verlander, Minor will pitch a gem
Should be a very live dog tonight

Not much to say we lost 6-1 now losers of six in a row, our record is 50-48
I blame the front office & ownership for this mess we are in, of course the players need to still try but all this trade distraction spilled over into our clubhouse
Yes we were better than I thought & many others but this past week has been a disgrace

Jurado went only 5.0 gave up 8 hits 5 runs all earned walked 1 struck out 5 & gave up one HR
Our offense was offensive as we only mustered 2 hits
Choo-Choo drove in our only run
We left 1 on base & struck out 13 more times, in our last 3 games we’ve struck out 42 times

Lynn goes to the hill tomorrow afternoon before we head to Seattle

Lynn struck out 12 while pitching 7.0 innings but gave up 2 HR’s allowing a total of 7 hits 4 runs all earned & walking 2
Kelley came in to pitch but felt discomfort & never faced a batter will now get a MRI

Went 1-5 with RISP left 6 on base & struck out 13 times
Odor & Gallo each went 0-4 Joey striking out all 4 times
Gallo went 0-12 in the series with 9 strikeouts now batting .253
After the game locker room was closed so the players & Woody could talk things over after just getting swept by the ‘Stros & we’ve now lost 7 in a row one game over .500

Off to Seattle for 3 games, Sampson takes to the hill tonight

This slump has allowed the Rangers to do what is best for their future which means trading away short term assets for good prospects. Its been a nice season for this team but it would have been foolish to believe that this team was contending.

At no time did I ever think they were contenders, but I do blame the front office for this funk we are in
We could have been a .500 team & given the fans something to feel good about heading into next year instead we will stagger to the finish line with many more questions than answers
Our pen is a mess, starting rotation when Minor gets traded is full of questions marks except for Lynn
I for one enjoyed the run we were on does this funk surprise me? not at all what I’d like to see is if we pick ourselves off the floor this week or it’s time to turn out the lights our season is over

I understand your frustration with the way your team has been playing but does it really make a difference if the team ends up with 82 or 78 wins. If I were a fan of the Rangers I would be closely watching the minor league system and hoping that guys like Minor fetch a good package. Your focus should be on how to improve enough the next few seasons to beat Houston who is arguably the best run team in baseball and Oakland who also has a real good young team.

Joey Gallo will undergo surgery to repair a broken hamate bone, recovery time on this varies only 3-6 weeks
or an best-case scenario, I present exhibit A: Matt Olson, who had the surgery in March & still has 21 HR this year.

Opinion on tonights game
Fiers is unbeaten in his last 7 home starts, going 4-0 with a 1.50 ERA
he has faced the Rangers 10 times in his career, 9 times as a starter, logging a 3-3 record and 6.59 ERA

I think a first 5 inning play on Rangers would have a shot
 

tuck321

Not all those who wander are lost
Trusting action Network. Ump 2.70 ERA with Fiers but Fiers is poor in the day bad day of week for Oakland and that ref is not chalky so I tried it

Just an awful loss, leading 5-4 heading into the bottom of the ninth
Leclerc comes in & gives up 2 runs end up losing 6-5 our record stands at 53-53
Payano was ok going 5.1 innings giving up 6 hits 3 runs all earned walked four struck out four & gave up one HR
Santana went 3/4 one of those hit was a solo HR his 15th of the season
Mazara went 2/4 one of his hits was a solo HR also his 15th of the season
Calhoun & Cabrera also each recorded an RBI
Went 2-6 with RISP left 7 on base and struck out 9 times

Off today Seattle comes to town tomorrow, we desperately need to acquire a catcher with some pop
Our current catchers have been awful offensively
Lots of rumbling in the trade department Minor has 10 teams that he can void a trade to one of those being the Yankees
A long shot but we might be getting a star SP it will cost us but would be a headline grabber for sure

We fought back from a 5-1 deficit to tie it at 5-5 but in the top of the 7th our pen promptly gave up three runs & we lost 8-5 we are now under .500 at 53-54
Jurado lasted only 4.0 innings he gave up 7 hits 4 runs 3 of them earned walked two struck out three but gave up 2 HR’s
Odor went 2/4 driving in 3
DeShields went 3/4 driving in 1
Santana hit his 16th a solo shot
We went 4-8 with RISP left 8 on base & struck out only 4 times

We traded one of our better pen guys Chris Martin will now join the Braves, I’m happy for him
In return we got a lefty Kolby Allard he’s been pitching in AAA only 21 years old

Minor is scheduled to take the hill tonight if he’s still on the team
It’s disappointing to see us under .500 as we had a nice run giving us hope, August is upon us do we just fade away or regroup ?
Our ownership sucks they have no plan for this team & just take for granted the fans continue to support the team
