Not sure if this was ever posted, but here is a quick explanation of how I arrived on this: I was playing various Rangers Sporcle trivias, thought about David Dellucci and was curious if he was up to anything. Went to his wikipedia page and saw this being referenced. Sure enough there was a youtube video for it.

ESPN.com MLB Experts Playoff Predictions are In

1

Playoff Predictions are probably flying around all over the place, but ESPN.com has their's in. Out of 27 folks, 5 pick the Rangers to win against the Rays. This list includes Durrett, Pedro Gomez, Tim Kurkjian, Amy K. Nelson and Buster Olney. Pretty excited about the Kurkjian and Olney picks. Of those 5, only one expects the Rangers to win the AL and she in fact picks them to win it all!!!! Thank you Amy K. Nelson!

Durrett has a full list of Board of Directors and Owners

Pretty interesting to finally see a full list... None of the previously unknown names mean anything to me.... Anyone have some insight?

Darren O'Day is blogging for ESPN Dallas this year

1

This is the first entry of a season-long blog that O'Day is doing for ESPN Dallas. He talks about being called in for the meeting on Wednesday, going to the press conference, and helping a young new side-armer named Cody Eppley.

When Bobby Valentine, the former manager of the Chiba Lotte in Japan, would see Marty Brown, the manager of the Hiroshima Carp, he would casually ask him before a game, "How are you doing?" Brown would reflexively answer, "I'd be better if Colby Lewis was pitching."

Rangers have what it takes to win AL West by Buster Olney

+

It's the cover story on ESPN.com's MLB page right now. I don't have insider, so I can't recap the whole thing, but the headline is enough to show that the Rangers are starting to be taken seriously. Let the good times roll!

"A Rangers collapse is no sure bet" by Ken Rosenthal

+

Finally a front-page story on where the Rangers are right now... Rosenthal believes it is possible that they can keep it up, and includes some pretty good points: The Ballpark in Arlington is notoriously hitter-friendly, but Rangers pitchers no longer fear contact; the team has improved from last in the majors in defensive efficiency last season to first in the AL thus far.

VIDEO: KC Announcer Comments on Bradley from Wed's

Bradley co-winner of AL player of the week

1

Bradley shares the honor with Joe Crede: Texas Rangers outfielder Milton Bradley and Chicago White Sox third baseman Joe Crede have been named the Bank of America Presents the American League Co-Players of the Week for the period ending June 8th... ...Last week, Bradley hit .478 (11-23) with five home runs and nine RBI. The 29-year-old outfielder racked up 29 total bases, along with a 1.261 slugging percentage, three doubles and 12 runs scored. Bradley walked nine times, stole four bases and posted a .647 on-base percentage in seven games. During a four-game series against the Cleveland Indians from June 2nd-5th, Bradley went 7-for-13 with four home runs, seven runs scored and seven RBI, including a multi-homer game on June 3rd. On June 7th, the Harbor City, California native went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI against the Tampa Bay Rays. On the season, Bradley is batting .340 with 14 home runs and 43 RBI. This marks the first career weekly award honor for Milton Bradley... ...Tourneau, the world's largest watch store, will present both Milton Bradley and Joe Crede with luxury Swiss Tourneau timepieces, suitably engraved, in recognition of their achievements as players of the week. (Hey, I got a watch from Tourneau once!)

Clinton has 9 players named to Midwest League All-Star Game

+

Clinton sends the most players to the Midwest League All-Star game, with Lansing and Kane County coming in second with seven players. Four LumberKings will start: Catcher Jose Felix First Baseman Ian Gac Shortstop Renny Osuna Outfielder Mitch Moreland Pitchers: Neftali Feliz Kennil Gomez That is all the article alludes to, but they say there is one more pitcher, so that leaves 2 unnamed position players. The article also says that Clinton manager Mike Micucci is likely going to be involved in the staff for the Western Division team. If I had to guess, the three unaccounted players are likely: Beltre, Timothy Smith, and Beavan.

John Sickels' Prospect Profile for German Duran

2

Mr. Sickels does a pretty good job, talking about how Duran developed into a player people started to take notice of. Went from an unknown, that the Rangers were high on, to a sleeper, to a solid B prospect in Sickels' book this year. He still projects him as just a solid career utility guy, but says that if he were given 500 ABs, he could get 30 doubles and 15 HRs. His versatility is also a plus. Duran isn't a future star, but he should have a long career as a really good bench guy who could be better than some players with regular jobs. (apparently block quotes don't work on fanshots)
