Major League Baseball has revealed its 2013 schedule, which will begin with an undetermined stand-alone matchup on March 31, and features new twists for interleague play with the Astros switching to the American League.
All by himself, Ian Kinsler showed why the Texas Rangers can be so dangerous. Kinsler got four hits, scored three runs and stole two bases Thursday night, sending the AL West leaders past the Oakland Athletics 7-6 for their 11th win in 13 games.
The season to date in the AL West is best summed up by one word: fireworks. The contest has emerged early as a two team race between the starter-loaded Angels, and the absolutely electric bats of the Texas Rangers.
One-third of the baseball season is in the books, and we can be very thankful that the Rangers got off to such a hot start, and that the Angels struggled at first.
Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton, who collected nine home runs and 18 RBIs last week, has been named the AL Player of the Week for the period ending May 13.
The Rangers lead the Angels in the AL West by eight games. It ain’t over, but the Angels have to be pretty dejected at this point. There are, however, 16 games remaining between the teams.
New Houston Astros owner Jim Crane is considering changing the name of the franchise as well as its uniforms.
Baseball owners unanimously approved the long-delayed sale of the team last Thursday, a transaction that requires the franchise to move from the NL Central to the AL West in 2013.
Joe Nathan and the Rangers agreed to a two-year contract with a club option for 2014, a move that means closer Neftali Feliz will shift to the starting rotation.
Whether you’ve reached the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt’s End:
The Astros will move from the NL Central to the AL West beginning in the 2013 season, giving each league 15 teams.
Rays pitcher David Price will get a chance to face the only AL opponent he’s never beaten, when he goes against the Rangers in ALDS Game 3.
