Texas Rangers Minor League Report: Frisco Roughriders

In the first inning of last night’s series opener against the San Antonio Missions, the RoughRiders exploded for a five run first inning. Back to back RBI triples from Nomar Mazara and Jorge Alfaro sparked the big inning. Missions starter Zach Segovia had previously put together five innings of run-less baseball in 2015. The Riders jumped out 7-2 but a grand slam for Padres prospect Jason Hagerty in the 6th inning cut a the lead down to 7-6 and it was soon tied.

Frisco RoughRiders: Chad Bell Rejoins Rotation

Chad Bell has started a game in Frisco before as a member of the RoughRiders, it’s just been a while. Almost three years, in fact. Before being promoted to AAA Round Rock, the then-22 year old southpaw threw four innings on June 16, 2012. He wasn’t stellar, giving up three runs while striking out two to three walks in an abbreviated outing.

Texas Rangers: MLB The Show Predicts 2015

Our pals over at GameSided used the amazing MLB The Show video game to create a simulation for the 2015 Major League Baseball season.

As an avid baseball fan and The Show gamer –just like the author of this post– this idea is intriguing, entertaining and a whole lot of fun. It’s also…a video game. Stay tuned for reminders of that in the form of a Clayton Kershaw trade.

Texas Rangers 2015 Ceiling Is A Problem

In sports, you want to win.

That’s our show everybody, thanks for coming out.

No, seriously. In sports, the goal is to be the last team standing. As the saying goes, “If you’re not in first, you’re in last.” This statement is untrue in so, so many ways.

Prospects Spotlight: American League West

As I sit here watching the very first nationally televised Spring Training game of the 2015 Major League Baseball season –the Pittsburgh Pirates vs. the Toronto Blue Jays– it has me excited on so many levels.

One level of that excitement is my adoration and obsession with the “next wave,” if you will.

Prospects.
