Each week I plan to provide a post filled with links to some of the best and most interesting articles of that week by other Rangers blogs. Texas Rangers fans are incredibly blessed with a multitude of high quality blogs and writers. Because it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with all that is posted in a week, I hope to provide you with just the best must-reads.
The highlight of this week for the Rangers was the debut of Yu Darvish on the mound, and Jamey Newberg of The Newberg Report summed it up perfectly.
For more detailed scouting analysis of Darvish and several of the other Rangers prospects, be sure to subscribe to the Texas Farm Review by Jason Parks. Jason is a writer for Baseball Prospectus, but he has set up the TFR to focus specifically on Rangers prospects. His writing this week will excite and inspire Rangers fans.
Kevin Goldstein ranked the Rangers top 20 prospects, with scouting reports on the top 11, on Baseball Prospectus this week. BP also requires a subscription, but in addition to Goldstein and Parks, the BP crew sports some of the most talented writers in the industry.
Rob Neyer wrote about the situation the Rangers have developing in center field for SB Nation, with multiple options but limited roster spots.
The writers at Shutdown Inning have been running a “Prize of Surprise” series this week, touching on Scott Feldman, Joe Nathan, Craig Gentry, and Yorvit Torrealba.
James Holland contributed a piece to Yahoo! Sports about the Rangers 6th and 7th starters, Alexi Ogando and Scott Feldman, and asks the question: Is that where they belong?
Jean-Luc Tilly of Nolan Writin’ reviewed the offseason for the Texas Rangers franchise, grading out the moves that the Rangers didn’t make.
