Thoughts on a 5-1 Rangers loss
  • That was disappointing.
  • I mean, the game, the result, sure, but really what’s disappointing is not getting to see the wacky extra innings rules for the first time.
  • Texas got eight innings of terrific pitching. Lance Lynn continued to do Lance Lynn things, allowing a single run on a Matt Chapman home run in 6.1 IP, walking three, allowing three hits, and striking out seven.
  • If the Rangers don’t get their shit together, Lynn, who has been one of the best pitchers in baseball since the start of last year and who under contract through 2021, could be the subject of a bidding war at the end of the month…especially with how pitchers have been going down this season.
