The 1st half of the season could be very challenging for the RANGERS. 

1. Looks like we lost out on resigning Montgomery.

2. Seager, Lowe, and Jung are all dealing with injuries.

3. deGrom, Scherzer and newly acquired Mahle will not be ready until the summer or later, which leaves us with no depth to the rotation.

 

Projected pitching rotation:

Was hoping they’d sign a big name reliever and maybe trade for a starter.  Might be a long shot to make the playoffs this year if we can’t stay afloat until everyone comes back.  On a positive, Wyatt Langford has been absolutely raking in spring training.

Anyone have information about Michael Lorenzen?  I'm not very familiar with him but it sounds like his career has been up and down.  Is this a good addition? 

He'll be a decent 4th or 5th starter.  He's spent a good amount of time in his career as a long reliever, so when all of the injured pitchers return he may fill a valuable role in the bullpen.  Career 40-38 record, 4.11 ERA.  So basically an inning eater, but not a bad move by the rangers.

Josh Jung was hit by a pitch last night and fractured his wrist. Probably going to be the middle of May before he comes back.

gotta feel for him.  He'd been our best or second best hitter to start the season.  pretty insane how stacked our lineup is even with him and Lowe out.

Bradford pitched a gem last night in the 10-2 win over houston. 
7.2 innings, 2 hits, 1 run, 4 K’s, 0 walks 

 

I didn’t trust him coming in, but he’s been dang solid through two starts.

After the 16 games the RANGERS are 8-8.  The pitching has been bad so far.  The starters are only going 4 and 5 innings which leads to a over worked, already bad, bullpen.  Can't wait for Lowe, Jung, and at least one pitcher to come of the IL.

Leclerc has cost us 2-3 games already, and lost his closer spot already.  The bright spot in the pen has been Kirby Yates.  He took over the closer role this series and saved his first chance, then today when the rangers scored in the top of the 9th he shut down Detroit in the bottom of the 9th to get the win.  He’s 2-0 on the year with a save, pitching 7.1 innings giving up only 1 hit so far with a 0.00 ERA.  Hopefully he’s found the form he had for the Padres from 2017 to 2019.  If so he could be elite.

    • Yes you are right they did qualify for 7 on 7 sate tournament, Texan live has a free event posted today outlining all the teams.
    • Anahuac will be much better than some of those listed in the top 25. It will not take long for them to be ranked. 
    • Slightly more black than white in Section 8.    This is the hidden content, please Sign In or Sign Up But that’s completely understandable based on the percentage of single parent households  in those respective communities. 
    • How does the doorman’s decision make Trump a racist?
    • But this is the type of thing I’m talking about. Are black people to stupid to get a photo ID? That’s what liberals would have us believe. Requiring everybody to provide a photo ID when voting is discrimination towards blacks? Gimme a break.    It’s a proven fact that black people commit the majority of violent crimes in America, despite making up only 13 percent of the population. But racism is the reason that there are more black people in jail for committing violent crimes? Duh.    The majority of individual wealth is comprised of our homes… but it’s exceptionally hard for single moms of any race to achieve home ownership. When 75% of AA kids are born to single moms, it’s not surprising that more black kids grow up in rent houses and apartments.    I know a young man that dropped out of high school, got arrested a couple times, has three baby mama’s did some actual time, likes to smoke a lot of weed, has neck tattoos and can’t speak the King’s English. You’d say “well, that’s institutional racism, the legacy of our original sin of slavery, and the effects of growing up in poverty.” I’d say, “hold up… you’re completely wrong-this kid is white and he’s just an eff-up.”  But you give no possibility to the idea that a lot of problems are self-inflicted, not the ol’ racist boogey man.    And there wasn’t a current racist policy in that article. There was a lot of conjecture on the part of the author, trying to pin outcomes on racism, without a single shred of evidence, other than the outcomes.    Racist laws and policies against minorities have been illegal since 1964. You can’t point out a single policy that’s discriminatory to minorities in 2024. Racism is imagined at this point.
